Rare and gorgeous drab ware/drabware candlesticks with classical decorations. These are likely by Ridgway. Height is 10", width at base 4". Condition is excellent with just three small chips to the underside of the stoneware base (see image). Wonderful examples of drab ware candlesticks- the only pair I have ever seen.
Massive Irish cut glass canoe or navette shaped bowl. Height is 8",length is 12", width is 8". Beautiful, deep cutting with a swirled pattern to the lower section of the bowl. The foot is deeply lobed and thick. The condition of this piece is excellent with only several truly miniscule flakes to the rim. This elongated form is a specialty of the Irish glass houses which thrived after the tax on glass was lifted from Ireland in the 18th Century. A fine example of Irish glass. Waterford?
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.

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.

Overshot glass is simply magical! It looks just like ice.
