The smallest of three Rockingham glazed mugs recently acquired, three inches in height. It was turned on a wheel rather than molded, and has some of the irregularities (and charm) of a hand-made ceramic. The mug has incised ridges at the foot and a strap handle. There are two chips on the bottom edge that are insignificant on this type of pot, meant to be used everyday. The glaze covers the inside and outside of the cup. Made of yellow clay in either Ohio or New Jersey circa 1880.

A wonderful mosaic dish made in London circa 1900 by a master of the craft who is unknown. A 9 inch tin dish was augmented with cement or a similar material and decorated with broken pieces of ceramic, shell, glass and a comb. The grout between the pieces was decorated with paint so there are no plain surfaces. There is a ceramic frog as the centerpiece of this dish. It is heavy, in excellent condition, and painted yellow on the underside.

I found two fabulous mosaic memory dishes in England, where they were made circa 1900 (late Victorian). Starting with a plain 9 inch tin dish the maker built up a ridge of cement or a similar material and covered the entire surface with bits and pieces of ceramics and colored glass. The centerpiece is a ceramic hare. The cement or grout and some of the bits also are decorated with colorful dots of paint - so there are no plain surfaces. Condition is excellent and the dish is heavy due to the added materials. The underside of the dish is painted black.

The shape suggests the three-handled, three-spout tyg, a traditional form. But this hand made piece is a stylized late 19th century artist's pot made by C.H. Brannam in his studio at his family's Barum facility. It was made in 1897 from the local red clay and beautifully glazed with fish and other marine life forms. The piece measures 3 inches in height and 14 inches in circumference, and is in perfect condition.

A colorful art pottery vase made in England at the Rolle Quay facility established by William Baron in 1895. The design reflects the popularity of mountaineering in the Alps at the end of the 19th century. The vase is made of the local red clay, hand thrown and hand painted, with a glaze drip that can be seen in the photo (before firing glazes do not have the same intense color as they do after firing, so the drip was missed at the time by Baron). Measures 3-1/2 inches in height, with no damage. The vase is signed on the bottom "Baron/Barnstaple/394": the number might be sequential for all the pieces Baron had produced.

Made circa 1870 as a desk implement, to be rolled over blotting paper that absorbed excess liquid ink (when pen and ink were used). The ferns were printed on paper and glued to the painted wooden roller, then varnished. This example is in excellent condition with tiny signs of use. The rule measures 6-5/8 inches in length.

Perhaps influenced by Toby jugs this ceramic friar was made with a majolica glaze, in England circa 1900. It is in perfect condition, probably never used but kept as a display piece. The roly-poly jug measures 4-1/2 inches in height and about 11 inches in circumference including the strap handle. Only one of its kind I've ever seen: there is no maker's or factory mark to help with identification.

This little sewing implement is called an emery: steel needles and pins could be stuck into the velvet covered ends to be cleaned and sharpened. Made in Scotland circa 1870 the emery is in very good used condition with two tight splits on the tartan areas and minor losses to the velvet material. It measures 2-7/8 inches in circumference and 1-1/2 inches in length.

This small tartan egg is complete, with an interior spindle to hold threads and needles, including the cap for the needle chamber. It is in gently used condition, with minor scuffing and tartan loss and a small split in the chamber cap, which can be seen in the photos. Paper printed with the Sinclair tartan was carefully applied to form a blue six-pointed star at the broad end of the egg and a green six-pointed star at the pointed end. The piece was made in Scotland circa 1860 and measures 4-1/4 inches in circumference and 2-1/4 inches in length.

This 6-3/4 inch tartan rule is in excellent condition except for missing its black label to identify the tartan - my best research picks Royal Stewart. It was made in Scotland in the last quarter of the 19th century (circa 1880), and its function would be to roll over blotted ink (rather than to measure); also it could be used to draw a short straight line. This is one solid piece of sycamore wood covered in the printed tartan paper.

This is an early sabot (shoe) made at the Grande Maison pottery in France between 1860 and 1883. It is hand-painted with a Petite Bretonne holding a flower and other flower sprays including one on the back of the shoe. There are minor nicks in the glazes on the upper rim and toe, very typical for this soft pottery. A wonderful survivor, measuring 6 inches long, 3 inches high and 2-1/4 inches wide.

An ironstone mold made in England by Minton in the 1800's, this size used for individual aspic novelties rather than for steamed puddings. In addition to the impressed Minton mark there is an impressed number mark (939?). The decorative motif is a quatrefoil or four-leaf clover. The mold is in good condition with a tight hairline. It measures about 1-3/4 inches in height and 3-1/8 by 2-1/8 inches across the top.
