The breton broderie motif (suggesting lace) was used as the border element on these expertly painted platters, made for the Grande Maison HB pottery in Quimper, France, between 1925 and 1930. The central decors are a woman sitting in a field holding a wine or water jug and a man sitting on a rock smoking his pipe. Both figures were hand painted by an artist identified as A (not an amateur pieceworker). The pieces were molded with two holes for hanging with manilla twine. Both are in excellent condition with beautifully scalloped borders. Measurements are 11-1/4 inches by 7-3/4 inches by 1-3/4 inches.

Like an English summer the hedgerow was the source of food for wildlife and birds and for beautiful wildflowers that wove their way through the tangle of limbs. This interpretation by Shelley China features bright flowers circling the entire cup and saucer, with more blooms inside the cup. The smaller size would have been used for after dinner coffee, not tea. Both pieces ring and are in perfect condition. Measurement for the cup is two inches high while the saucer is 4-3/4 inches in diameter. Made in England circa 1945 in the rarer Oleander shape.

This pair of candlesticks were made from industrial copper pieces that were welded together, with a scratched signature "Godfrey". They have a great look with three candles apiece, and I have not polished them. Each measures 10 inches tall, 8-1/4 inches wide and 4 inches deep at the square base. The bases and candle cups have hand-beaten beveled edges.

I believe these candlesticks were made by a metal crafter (they are stamped on the bottoms with the initials JHB) and were meant to have a dark finish. They look like they've been polished at some time - I am leaving them as is. The shape is graceful and they are sized to hold two taper candles apiece. Each candlestick measures 9-3/4 inches across, 5-1/2 inches tall and 4-1/2 inches deep at the round base. Made in the twentieth century in the US, they have no damage (and could be polished).

There are no identifying marks on this highly decorative salt box from Scandinavia, probably Norway. It is made from half of a bowl riveted to a decorative back with a lovely incised swirl and scalloped rim. It was made to hang in the inglenook of a stove, to keep the salt block dry. The workmanship is probably unprofessional (a primitive piece) but with a very decorative result, conveniently pierced with a hole for hanging. Measures ten inches tall, 9-1/2 inches wide and about 5 inches deep.

This little gem is a perfectly hand-painted example of Clarice Cliff's popular Spring Crocus motif on a traditional shape cup known as Athens. The plump pink, blue and dark yellow flowers fill the surfaces, and the technique of painting the flowers starting from the bottom to the broader top is easy to discern on this example. The set is early for Spring Crocus which was made and marketed for many years because of its beauty and popularity. It has Cliff's gold backstamp for Newport Pottery over the original Wilkinson's stamp, indicating it was made circa 1935, and it looks like it was never used: condition is perfect. The cup measures 2-1/4 inches in height, the saucer measures 5 inches in diameter.

A large (and heavy) cast iron doorstop of a basket filled with fruit. The original paint is in very good condition, and includes purple on the bunches of grapes, green leaves, yellow pears and apples with traces of red. The base of the basket is ridged rather than woven and perhaps was meant to depict a pedestal. No maker's mark, American or English made circa 1910 to 1920. Measures 11 inches high and 7-1/2 inches wide.

A yellow ware bowl with the Woodland glaze, with a folded rim and four white slip stripes. Although the bowl is unmarked most Woodland glaze pieces were made by Morton in Illinois during the first half of the 20th century.

Diameter is 8 inches, and other than a few tiny nicks in one of the stripes the bowl is in perfect condition.

A colorful fantasy landscape in the Summerhouse decor (although lacking any building) hand-painted in the workshop of Clarice Cliff after she took charge of the former Newport pottery facilities in 1930. Summerhouse was marketed from 1931 to 1933, and this piece has both trademarks, Bizarre and Fantasque. It shows the hands of a bander/outliner and of a painter who filled in the solid fields of color: yellow, orange, green, lavender, black and blue. The tazza is in perfect condition and measures 6-5/8 inches across and 2-3/4 inches tall. Note: a few white camera flash spots, none on the item.

An Art Deco design on a substantial eight inch tall pitcher or jug made in England by Fieldings in their Crown Devon line. The hand-painted decoration includes stylized orange, yellow and brown sunflowers with fairly realistic green leaves and dramatic black leaves with white zig-zag lines. No doubt influenced by the designs of Clarice Cliff and very bold for this factory. The jug has light crazing typical of earthenware from the era, a few missing flecks of paint in the overglaze colors; otherwise in mint condition. The circumference is 19 inches.

A rare early coffee pot, unusual creamer in a similar paneled shape, six dessert or luncheon plates, and six cups and saucers comprise this set, missing only the sugar bowl. All were hand made in Czechoslovakia in the 1920's for Joseph Mrazek's Peasant Art Industry and exported to the US for sale. The set is decorated with his familiar flowers and flower buds motif with the yellow squiggles ground - including some stray yellow paint marks inside the cream pitcher. The condition of all the pieces is very good to excellent, taking into account they were rather crudely made. The coffee pot is in excellent condition. No additional charge for shipping in the US.
