This neo-classically inspired porcelain pitcher is magnificent in its grace and, dare I say, grandeur. It expands as it rises from its gilded circular foot then recedes to give rise to a towering helmet style beaker. The base of the handle is anchored in a shield from which it serpentinely shoots up and then down to attach to the rim. The gilding is sumptuous especially around the hand painted scene of a riparian idyll with 2 people in discourse. Although the gilding has suffered loss, the paint...

When Dr Wall discovered a formula for porcelain which would withstand boiling water, he had a huge hit on his hand.

The interior bottom of the bowl contains a peony while its rim is ringed with a thick blue line. This wonderful blue and white bowl is made with soft paste porcelain, and among the very earliest exampl...

This Victorian copper luster pitcher practically dances with joy for the colorful flowers strung around the blue band of its bulbous form. Beading borders the blue and rim of the pitcher. Equally exciting is the mythical figure on the beaker spout. Condition is excellent and still retains luminous shine even after 170 years of life. 6 1/2" h

With neo-classicism a dominating influence in decorative arts, it is most natural that dinner service wares would follow suit with clean simple lines and decorations as we see in this Chinese export porcelain pitcher. Its chief decorative elements are subtle molded shapes and contours in the helmet form and the spare blue and white enameling of its body. The foot and the rim of the pitcher are embellished along with a lone bouquet of basket flowers - also and blue and gold - common among Chinese...

A very finely cut cameo of a lovely young woman who most likely represents one of the goddesses of Greek or Roman mythology. The carver shows off his skills with the many fine lines and drapings which complement the curled and wavy hair of the lady. The styling suggests transition away from Victorian into Art Nouveau and thus we believe that it was made c. 1900. Additional support comes from the absence of a gold mark on the frame which was not uncommon prior to the passing of the Gold Act requi...

A large ceramic studio art vase by the renowned Clement Massier whose work with lustrous iridescent glazes still commands admiration today. This ceramic vase is decorated with mythological and fantasy creatures, inscribed on the surface, each of which alternates between stylized fleurs de lys. The glazes are deep red - perhaps burgundy - infused with coppery tones. The style anticipates the Art Deco era, and speaks to Clement's leadership in the decorative arts world.
