I couldn't resist this unusual majolica server, even though it has some wear. The glaze is so rich, and has almost irridescent look when the light catches it. How clever the curled, reeded stem forms the handle! It is deep green, the different colorations in photos are only reflections due to the deep glaze. In fact I left the dust on it to reduce the glare. Each leaf tip has a teeny chip, but it is underneath and doesn't show unless you turn it over, as shown in photo...
This early 1900's, has the older more subtle coloration with the impressed mark St Clement France and their number 7516. The detail in the feathers, as well as over all is fabulous. I love the way the tail feathers turn up to create the handle and the beak forms the pouring spout! A most desirable and collectible piece for display as well as use...especially for the rooster collector and Oh! so French! 13" tall...
1900-1920 Three Crown China back mark. Though the images of roses is worn with much use, I just couldn't leave this heavy teapot stand behind! I love the raised swirls of the design, and these wonderful teapot stands are hard to come by...I think they were certainly well used. This one still has a lot of life left and so unique for your next tea party! 6 1/2" dia.
The artistic detail with raised hand painting gives this rare plate such dimension. The deep cobalt edging is heavily gilded with such a unique shape! The sturgeon is surrounded by more fish, sea shell, and oyster. It has double markings (more valuable) for Haviland Limoges dating it 1876 to 1889. Excellent condition. Measures 8" sq. A stunning addition for your collection!

This beautiful scalloped and embossed compote has a most unique decoration of underglaze transfer-printing with characteristics of flow blue, a result of the glazing process. This fine example has no repetition of the floral, foliate, and cartouche designs in the bowl. The patterned relief handles are quite lovely. The underneath of the pedestal is marked with an impressed 2 and 8. It measures 10" across the handles X 9" width, x 5.25" high.
