A large Julius Dressler hand painted colorful majolica tazza with two putti in the style of Michael Powolny. Height is 14", width is 14". Condition is good with wear to the coloration of the bowl, a tight stress hairline across the middle of the bowl that does not extend to the edges, several shallow chips to the base and rubbing to the metallic glaze of the rim and base. There is also kiln frit embedded in the clear glaze of the base - see images. Sounds much worse than it is - this has a massive presence and is absolutely stunning Austrian art pottery.

Ralph Stevenson and Williams, an American importer, had a brief partnership that ended around 1843. This rich cobalt dark blue Chinoiserie decorated platter shows the mark from that partnership. Length is 16", width is 13 1/2". Condition is very good with some staining to gadroon rim as shown and light use marks. A nice platter with historic connections.

An unusual piece of shell art in wonderful condition. The gondola is a rare form. A big 16" l. by 6.5"h.
Condition is wonderful with the only demerit being a slight skew of the raised back of the gondola.(see images) There are a few drill shell holes in a couple of the shells but I think these were there when it was made. None are missing.
An overshot, molded crackle glass tray that may have been for ice cream or a ladies dresser. The molten glass is rolled in glass shards before it is formed by molding. Condition is perfect, no chips or cracks. Length is 12 ", width is 7 3/4 " and depth is 2 ".
Overshot glass is simply magical! It looks just like ice.
