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.

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.

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.

A charming octagonal plate, measuring 7-1/8 inches in diameter, with a hand-painted floral motif and sponged border, in unusual colors. The plate is cream ware, made in England, and dating circa 1830. It is in very good condition with a tiny flake at one of the bottom points,knife marks on the body of the plate, and worn off glaze on the edges. Since this would have been in daily use in the early 1800s the damage is acceptable.

A 19thc majolica plate with the green, brown and yellow glaze known as tortoise, shaped like a scallop shell. The plate is in mint condition but has no maker's mark - probably made in England by a secondary pottery, emulating Wedgwood but using thicker earthenware. The plate is in mint condition and measures 9 by 8-3/4 inches.

Here is a well and tree platter made in England circa 1840 by Copeland and Garrett, a manufacturer associated with Spode at times. This is a meat platter: the channels, called tree, allow juices to drain into the well. The platter is in excellent condition with wear from usage, mostly on the reverse and slight buffering around the rim, but no chips, cracks or repairs. It is large and heavy and the uneven rim indicates that it was difficult to fire in the kiln and buckled slightly. The cobalt, rust and gilt decorations are still vibrant. Measurements are 21 inches in length, 15-1/4 inches in height, and 3-1/4 inches in depth.

The hand-painted fish and marine flora are tactile and exceptional on this Doulton jar, made in England circa 1890. The finely wrought fittings are silver plate, marked only with the number 13. The ceramic jar measures 4 inches in height and about 3-3/4 inches in diameter and has a printed mark, a faint impressed mark and the painter's cipher on the base. Originally used as a condiment jar with a fish set the jar also is appropriate for preserves, sauce or honey.

The pitcher measures 10 inches tall to the top of the open-mouthed fish (a trout, I think) and is in mint condition. The molding is crisp and the placement of the different colored glazes is appropriate. There is no maker's mark. The mustard colored base is a little unstable due to shrinkage in the kiln; otherwise there are no flaws - no chips, cracks, hairlines or stains.

This charming cup has typical hand-painted Gaudy Welsh decoration in rust and cobalt with pink luster accents. It is an early piece, circa 1840, and shows the vicissitudes of time with a 3/4-inch hairline crack on the side and crazing. However this size is very hard to find, and the price reflects condition. The cup measures 2 inches in height and 2 inches in diameter excluding the strap handle.

Both pieces are in mint condition, with no chips, cracks, crazing, repairs or stains.

The image of two boys and a dog eating and drinking in a courtyard is familiar from Pratt Ware printed ceramic lids. Here it is the design motif of a 7-inch diameter plate that was part of a dessert service, circa 1870, with an ornate gilded inner border and gilded rim. The plate is in excellent condition with wear to the border and a few other slight marks. Another identical plate with the same design motif is available.

This circa 1820 dish was printed using an early technique known as "BAT" which predates transfer from paper patterns (what we usually think of as transfer ware). It is an inky image of a scene called "Rural" with no other identifying mark. The 5-1/2 inch dish is in mint condition apart from an 1/8-inch factory crack on the rim. The rim itself is painted in cobalt and there is an inner ring of pink luster.
