A 7-inch bowl designed by Clarice Cliff, made in England in 1929-30. The motif is known as "Umbrellas" or as "Umbrellas and Rain", with alternating panels of giant raindrops and umbrellas seen from above. It is considered one of Cliff's Picasso-esque designs, seen in her earlier work. The condition of this bowl is excellent with a clean interior. The marks for Fantasque and Wilkinson indicate this was a standard shape bowl in the Wilkinson stock that was decorated in Cliff's own workshop.

The elephant doorstop? It is cast with some nice detailing, is hollow and not magnetic. There are the remains of black paint on one side while the surface of the other side is more corroded, part of the ear and jaw are missing, so this side was exposed to the weather. There is a seam down the middle and a screw head on the more corroded side. Perhaps it had a commercial purpose in the past. Measurements are 7-1/2 inches in height, 12 inches in width and 5 inches in depth.

The duckling has no markings to indicate its origin but has most of its original yellow and green paint. It was made in America and measures about 5 inches in height. It is heavy enough to be used as a paperweight.

This unusual pair of cast iron retrievers were originally intended as wall ornaments - one still has the hanging ring soldered to the back. They could be used as bookends although their plinths are fairly narrow. Certainly decorative for collectors of retrievers items. With no identifying marks it is difficult to ascertain where they were made in the early 20th century. They measure 6 inches wide by 3-3/4 inches high.

A primitive set in the mustard yellow glaze used in older soleil pieces, made by the Grande Maison HB in France in the 1920s (or earlier). The sugar bowl and lid depict a petit breton with a fishing pole as well as oversize flowers reminiscent of spongeware. The petite bretonne on the cream or milk pitcher holds a flower. The rim and spout of this jug were touched up with paint to cover worn away glaze but there was no actual damage to the piece or restoration of the pottery. Both pieces have crazing. The jug measures 4 inches in height and 5-14 inches in diameter including the loop handle, the sugar bowl and lid measure 4-3/4 inches in height and 7 inches in diameter including the loop handles.

A larger size morning coffee or tea cup and saucer made in France by the Grande Maison HB in the 1930s. The depiction on the cup is a petit breton holding a fishing pole, with flower sprays and primitive birds. The shape of the cup's handle was used in the 1930s and the glaze colors are bright, indicating these pieces were manufactured before World War II. The cup is completely marked while the saucer is marked France only. Measurements: the cup is 3-3/18 inches in diameter and 2-1/2 inches in height; the saucer is 6 inches in diameter. The rim of the cup shows light wear. I have another set done at the same time by the same painter, also depicting a man.

This is a painted aluminum horse decoration for the gate or fence of a stable or ranch. It is a nicely molded flat ornament with the original brown paint. There are two sets of holes on the back through which wires would attach the ornament to a gate or fence, as shown in the photo. I believe it is made of cast aluminum rather than another metal - the horse weighs just under 1-1/2 pounds. It measures 12-1/2 inches in length and 10-1/2 inches in height, with no condition issues.

A vintage plate made in France at Henriot, signed on the front and dating circa 1935. Some of the decoration was done after glazing, notably the mauve apron that has alligator crazing and the rust colored cuffs. The colors used for the costume are unusual as is the shading of the grass. The base glaze was applied hastily on the back of the plate and there are glaze skips on the scalloped rim but no actual damage. The plate measures 9-1/2 inches in diameter.

Larger than a doll's dish and decorated with a stylized flower this 3-1/4 inch small dish might be more decorative than functional. Very well painted in strong colors the style of painting suggests Art Deco, dating the piece to the 1930s. It is in very good condition with some roughness on the rim but no other damage.
