This exceptional teapot is from the Staffordshire region of England from the very early 19th century, reasonably dated c. 1800 and attributed to the New Hall factory. It is a porcelain production imitating the very popular Chinese wares coming into the European market, and attempting to convince consumers that it was of the same quality. These pieces often depict domestic scenes but are frequently scenes from theater or novels...

A larger than usual maiolica dry jug jar painted on the front with the scene of Saint Martin dividing his cloak with a beggar. On the back is the cypher for the Carthusian order and the date 1700. Unfortunately it is highly unlikely that this is the date of manufacture for the jar, which is almost certainly from the late 19th century and is loosely based on the series of jars that were made from 1697 into the early 18th century...

A fine matched pair of Staffordshire recumbent lions of press molded construction having maize enamel. The careful observer will note that the lions are not a mirror match, but they complement each other were most likely produced this way. While the condition of the lions is less than pristine having minor enamel losses and one minor chip as shown in the photos, we believe that serious collectors will appreciate the earliness and uniqueness of these ceramic lions. We date these lions to c...

Nature was the guiding light of the majolica movement in the mid to late 19th century, with this corn ear form an excellent example. The cob is partially exposed from its husk, the green glazing a visually delightful foil against the yellow kernels which are modeled individually. The underside has a spurious British registry mark, a common scheme of 19th century ceramic vendors to imply quality on the level of the more expensive manufacturers...

Majolica wares were all about representing nature, and this gurgle fish pitcher is no exception. These fish pitchers came in a number of variations, most of which dealt with color schemes and minor design differences. This pitcher, we believe, represents the cream of the crop in a number of respects, the first of which is the gorgeou color, the primary one being the rich nearly forest green glaze which scales to mint green. The belly is white while the tale and bib are brown...

This exceptional portrait plate features - we believe - the Biblical personage of Ruth. Even if we are mistaken, the artist M J Gray expended extraordinary care and skill in rendering the beautiful young woman hand painted on the 12 1/2" charger. While transfer plates with hand painting abound, fully hand painted ones are the exception rather than the rule...

It has been a long while since we have offered a Massier duck for sale, due in no small part to their rarity. This duck was expertly modeled in the studio of Jerome Massier around the turn of the 20th century using the vivid and, in this case slightly iridescent glazes for which he and his cousins were justly famed. The duck is standing on what we surmise is a sandy beach, adorned with rich green, brown, and off white colors, beak slightly open...

The colors are deep and bright on this two-handled tray or dish made in France at the Henriot Quimper pottery circa 1900. The petit Breton is playing the flute for his lady who is spinning wool or cotton into thread.
