A nice crisp Grenfell rug, of large size (16"x48" sight, 22"x55" burlap), featuring a group of Canadian geese in flight, this textile is a good example of the quality and design for which Grenfell rugs are known. In very good condition, with minor loss to the upper wing of the first goose, and some very slight discoloration to the background in the central area. The Grenfell label is attached to the back, and the burlap is all still intact, never having been cut or stretched...

Of bright apple green color, this wireless enamel cloisonne vase measures 9 3/4" high and has a softer green floral and foliate design around the entire vase, just below the shoulder. In very good condition, with no chips or cracks in the enamel, and some slight abrasions to the surface. Unsigned, it is in the style of some musen Ando wares, and dates to the mid 20th century. The color and size are strong and appealing, and are a good example of simple and modern Japanese cloisonne.

In very good condition, this matching pair of Quimper plates measure 8 1/2" and are signed on the back HB Quimper Frnce, with a + and a dot, which appears to be a mark done prior to 1940. There is very slight glaze wear to the rims of the plate and one plate has a pock mark that appears to have been made during firing (visible in photos). With nice bright colors on a creamy white slip, this pair is a good example of the charm and artfulness of this renowned French maker.
