The frog was purchased from a very chic,very over priced nursery in Santa Barbara, California seven years ago. I can not tell you how old the frog is, but I know they had him for 10 years, probably because of his outrageous price. The owner told me the frog was shipped with a collection of fine garden porcelain, including particularly wonderful shaped large pots, (Of Course I bought some of these also,so inquire) they are incredibly beautiful works of art with turquoise and azure drip glazes. also...
NOTE: The pottery is a hard rough creamy beige stonewear, probably Shekwan (from China)and is not the Vietnamese turquoise/celadon found at big garden centers.

The Shishi, or Foos if you prefer appear to be Kutani, with starburst marks characteristic of late 19th centur Japanese. Great flamboyant style, pizazz and wonderful brilliant polychrome color and unique details. The Shishi have a unique charming almost folk art "mingei" feel. There was old felt backing which I have removed but find no identifying marks, so the figurines probably date to pre 1890. I have left a very early price sticker which came with the figurines.

From the top of the incredible gilt finials to the serpents and figural heads these lamps just jumpout. Bold majolica is contrasting greens and pinks really set off a RETRO feel, with age old Italian Majolica.
The lamps are signed with the Cantagalli name, rooster and Italy.
Dimensions: To be added (very large)
Condition: Excellent. A small chip on the snout of one of the sea serpents, looks big in the enlargement, but is really minor and easily repairable. See photo #9.
