We have not entirely identified this antique majolica item, but it is either a desk organizer or cigarette holder. Clearly there are 3 receptacles for holding items such as pens, toothpicks, matches, cigarettes or other items not easily store otherwise. Whatever its original use, it is completely divine in its construction with separately molded containers such as the woven basket, the applied handle, and the applied anchor...

A fine Spode New Stone china small covered double handled tureen with under plate painted in the Imari palette featuring floral themes in the Chinese style. Spode introduced New Stone c. 1820, so we feel safe dating this item to c. 1825. It is in very good condition with the only flaw being minor to moderate gilding loss around the edge of the plate. As a quality feature, you will note that the inside rim of the bowl is decorated...

An exceptionally attractive transferware bowl in the Milanese Pavilion pattern having fruit and floral images around the rim while two elegantly attired ladies converse on the pavilion. The back stamp bears the J H & Co mark of Joshua Heath & Co and dates to c. 1840 While the bowl is visually magnificent, it has a 2 3/4" hairline crack for which we have drastically reduced the price and for which we would consider reasonable offers. Dimension: 10 1/4"

Francis Wheatley ( 1741-1801) first earned his fame as a portrait painter for the aristocracy, but when he fell out of favor, his landmark series of paintings of the Cries of London depicting the working poor hawking their wares on the streets of London ensured long lasting fame. Prints of his paintings were popular throughout the 19th century and early 20th...

A fine matched pair of Staffordshire recumbent lions of press molded construction having maize enamel. The careful observer will note that the lions are not a mirror match, but they complement each other were most likely produced this way. While the condition of the lions is less than pristine having minor enamel losses and one minor chip as shown in the photos, we believe that serious collectors will appreciate the earliness and uniqueness of these ceramic lions. We date these lions to c...

Nature was the guiding light of the majolica movement in the mid to late 19th century, with this corn ear form an excellent example. The cob is partially exposed from its husk, the green glazing a visually delightful foil against the yellow kernels which are modeled individually. The underside has a spurious British registry mark, a common scheme of 19th century ceramic vendors to imply quality on the level of the more expensive manufacturers...

Majolica wares were all about representing nature, and this gurgle fish pitcher is no exception. These fish pitchers came in a number of variations, most of which dealt with color schemes and minor design differences. This pitcher, we believe, represents the cream of the crop in a number of respects, the first of which is the gorgeou color, the primary one being the rich nearly forest green glaze which scales to mint green. The belly is white while the tale and bib are brown...

A wonderful hexagonal shaped ironstone flow mulberry covered dish with handles, often times called a vegetable dish, in the Jeddo pattern by William Adams and Sons, c. 1850. The dish and lid are structurally sound but there are a few condition defects to note. On the underside of the lid, there are 2 very shallow chips. On the underside of the foot, there are also 2 chips - 1 very small and the other about 1/4". We show pictures of all defects. Fortunately, none of these chips is visible when...

This glorious flow mulberry coffee pot is a treat on several counts, not the least of which is the fine ironstone construction and design of the pot with the Peruvian pattern by J Wedge Wood - not be confused with Josiah. The body flairs outward, cutting an impressive figure. Although there is regular crazing throughout, the condition of the pot is excellent. The underside is backstamped as noted, and also has a British Registry mark for the year 1875. However, Wedge Wood is known to have oper...
