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. They are standing between towers of flowers under a blue sky; the border decoration is larger and more exuberant than the other similar piece (item 1333918) I have in my store. This piece is in perfect condition, as bright and fresh as it was the day it was made. Measurements are twelve inches including the twisted handles by 8-1/4 inches.

This hand-formed and hand-beaten brass dish was found in England, made during the Arts and Crafts era, probably by a guild craftsman. It has a trefoil shape with deeply scalloped edges, lovely raised flowers with entwining foliage, and a rather curious raised forearm clutching a leafy branch in the center. Possibly from a family crest although I would expect more symbols than just the one. The dish measures 7-3/4 inches in diameter. It has the number 2605 and a partial maker's mark of H&H with an incomplete symbol. Dating circa 1890-1910.

An early 10-1/2 inch yellow ware bowl in remarkable condition, made in the USA circa 1850. The bowl has three narrow stripes of white slip, a folded and creased rim, and a foot. There is no damage, just some glaze pops, and I have shown the largest. Normal, careful use is evident.

A charming 8-1/4 inch plate with a creamy off-white glaze and hand-painted sprigs of red flowers with blue centers and green leaves. Made circa 1840 with touches of blue showing through, indicating this was made early before white ironstone glazes had been perfected. The plate is in perfect condition with no damage - and I have a second identical plate.

The hexagonal cup is hand-painted with four panels of floral sprays (touche decor), and two panels with a man holding his pipe and a woman holding a nosegay. The cup handle is shaped like a wishbone and the floral decorated saucer is notched between the six sides. Both pieces have the painted HR Quimper mark indicating they were made between 1895 and 1922. Both pieces are made from thick pinkish clay and are in excellent condition with no damage. The cup measures 2-3/4 inches in height; the saucer measures 5-1/4 inches in diameter.

Widest of the three Rockingham glazed drinking cups being listed but just three inches in height, also made for a child or female circa 1880. The pot was turned on a wheel from yellow clay in Ohio or New Jersey and decorated with brown glaze with a clear glaze over all. It is in excellent condition.

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 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.

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 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.

Really wonderful pair of ceramic shoes (sabots) made in France by Longwy circa 1910. They are decorated in a typical motif of flowering branches on a turquoise ground with mauve interiors, and have pointed toes and recessed heels. There is a hole in each shoe so they can be joined with a ribbon or thong, then displayed as a hanging ornament, but they are substantial enough to stand as shelf or mantel ornaments. Measurements are 6 inches in length, 2 inches in width and 2-3/4 inches in height. Both are in mint condition.

A yellow ware pie plate with brown Rockingham glaze, measuring 9-1/4 inches in diameter across the top of the dish. It is in excellent condition with very light knife marks as the only signs of wear. There is a manufacturing anomaly on the underside, looks like a stray thumb mark in the clay (was this the maker's signature?) Made in the US circa 1870.

The bowl is in fabulous condition, looks nearly unused, with very little crazing in the interior that has resulted in very minor discoloration.

An 8-3/4 inch diameter plate made in England prior to 1850, with sponged border and a forest green circle decoration in the center. The plate is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks or repairs. The hand-painted forest green ring at the perimeter is smeared where the glaze ran but the cobalt, gold and green sponges were applied very carefully. I have another plate with the same motif, also in excellent condition, with slight variations from the hand that decorated them. The plates are priced separately. There is an impressed five-point star mark on the underside but no other identifying information.
