Trained as an architect Australian Keith Murray designed dinnerware for Wedgwood for a few years prior to 1940 - and introduced the clean lines and matte glazes that became known as Art Moderne. The mug is glazed in a single color but has narrow white striped edges produced by wiping the glaze off these surfaces before firing. The mug is in perfect condition and measures four inches in height. It is marked with the initials KM rather than with Murray's full signature.

This looks to me like a mallard duck, with the male's green head as well as the colors and motifs of Ivoire Corbeille. Although it looks like a duck it is the usual size for holding a chicken egg, four inches long and almost two inches wide. The diameter of the well is 1-3/4 inches. Hand painted in France circa 1930, with some firing issues with the green glaze on the head and a tiny nick on the beak, but no other damage. The cup looks like it was never used, possibly because of the glaze but is nonetheless charming.

An adorable, alert Westie (a little of the white paint remains) made in America of cast iron circa 1930. It would have been used as a doorstop and is heavy. Other than the remaining paint the dog's coat has become rusted all over. The piece is in sound condition with no wearing away of the metal or weak spots. Measurements are eleven inches long by 8-1/2 inches high; weight is about eleven pounds.

Two ceramic knife rests made at the Henriot Quimper pottery in France circa 1930, each hand painted with a man, a woman, and flowers. The styling is very similar on the two but they are probably a marriage rather than having been painted by one person - the sponged decor on the end for the Petite Bretonne is green while the ends for the Petit Breton are blue. Both are in very good used condition with some wear but no other damage. Measuring 3-1/4 inches in length they are being offered for sale as a pair.

These egg cups were made by Poole in England circa 1925, during the art pottery era under the ownership of Carter, Stabler and Adams. The are hand-painted with identical motifs and were done by the same painter whose cipher is prominent on the bottoms. Both have been used, with light crazing in the interiors and a flake missing from the bottom rim of one. There were wax remnants in one cup so they have been used as candlesticks - but their original purpose was as egg cups. Measurements are about 1-3/4 inches in diameter and 1-5/8 inches in height. They are offered for sale as a pair.

Purely stylized flowers and foliage decorate this demitasse size coffee cup with a larger, coordinating saucer, made at the Grande Maison HB in France circa 1950s. The cup is marked with the initials of the painter (PR) while the saucer has only the word France on the underside. The glaze colors used and the painter's hand indicate these were always meant as a set (there may not have been any smaller saucers at the time). Both pieces are in excellent condition. The cup measures 2-3/8 inches in height; the saucer measures 5-3/8 inches in diameter.

The strong colors on this biscuit barrel, or cookie jar, are remarkable with only a few scratches in the glaze on the top of the barrel and light oxidation of the outermost rim of blue glaze on the lid, and no other damage. This is one of Clarice Cliff's designs and shapes, number 333, designed and brought to market in England in 1932- 1933. Blue Chintz is one of her stylized designs, as though looking at a chintz ceramic pattern through a microscope that has enlarged each flower into a color field. The barrel has its original raffia handle, dyed dark blue and in very good condition. The barrel and lid measure about seven inches in height and the circumference of the jar is 19 inches.

Bobbins is one of Clarice Cliff's abstracted or Picasso inspired motifs, in production from 1931 to 1933. This bowl is in a simple shape and has both Bizarre and Fantasque stamps, indicating it was made at the Newport pottery, bought out by Cliff's employer Wilkinson's, with the factory turned over to Cliff to accommodate her burgeoning workshop. The bowl was probably a Newport blank, not one of Cliff's own shapes, with the design applied in three stages by three painters: an outliner, an enameler and a bander. It shows signs of use in the honeyglaze interior and some tiny missing flecks in the design but there is no damage. The bowl measures 7-3/8 inches in diameter and 3-1/4 inches in height.
