We recently acquired a trio of old English painted pottery stirrup cups in the form of a fox. They are similar in that they all have grape vines encircling their masks, but they each differ slightly. Dating to the early 1900's, this one is almost 5 inchdes long and is in excellent condition, with only some scrapes and rubbing on the rim.
This is an old hand-painted pottery fox mask that is mounted on a carved walnut trophy mount. The fox is probably from the early 1900's and the plaque is a Black Forest carving from the mid 1800's. Even though their ages differ they work great together! Size is 9" by almost 6". Originally $575.00

These underglazed printed lids were produced in the Staffordshire region and provide a fascinating pictorial study of Victorian social history. This one dates to the latter 1800's and is in excellent condition with age related crazing being the only issue. The scene is a flat turf race in England complete with cheering crowds and tents, which give it a carnival atmosphere, as race days often were. The frame is really special. ...click for details
