An oil on mahogany panel of a Claudian landscape with trees to the far left above figures approaching a river, while figures on the opposite side stand beneath a rise in the landscape with mountains in the distance under a cloudy sky. The composition and manner suggest a late painting by the Scottish Alexander Nasmyth (1758-1840) or possibly his eldest son Patrick Nasmyth (1787-1831), though the brush strokes are looser than usual for either. 8 11/16 x10 ¾ with margin, 7 1/8 x 10 1/8 w/out.

A pair of porcelain dinner plates with molded basketweave and lines on the lip, with the lines extending into the well. Decorated with hand painted overglaze flowers and a gilt edge. The style closely resembles Meissen, but these are unmarked and Meissen was usually good about marking their wares. This less formal style of flower painting was common in the later part of the 18th century. 10 inch (23.5 cm) diameter.

Condition: No hairlines or repairs. Small amount of stacking wear to both, ...

Two pairs of plates with underglaze blue transfer decoration of a woman holding a tray of cakes with a child pulling at her dress and an oriental jardinière to one side surrounded with an elaborate floral swagged border. The smaller are more like shallow bowls than like plates. These two are porcelain and both marked with Hilditch and Sons mark for the period 1822-1830. The larger plates have overglaze lustre highlights and are not porcelain. I suspect that they are slightly later very close im...

A set of tiles with a letter of the alphabet on each tile; one side with the small letter and the other side with it in capitals. Interestingly the small “s” is in the form of a small “f”, known as a “long s.” Its use was archaic by the early 19th century and since these types of tiles are thought to be used to teach spelling it seems likely that they would date from no later than the early 19th century. The box in which they came is later, though the map of the Azores which is used...

A large heavy porcelain ice-water pitcher made in either America or France but decorated in America, probably by E.V. Haughwout, a major New York City retailer of porcelain, glassware and silverware. This form, with a bridge near the spout for holding back ice cubes, is also known as a “sweetheart pitcher,” because of the vaguely heart-shaped wreath on either side. In that wreath on this pitcher is painted a view of the Green river in Wyoming and on the other side in gilt the name, “Mathew...

Large and well decorated porcelain pitcher with a group of flowers on one side and on the opposite side inside a gilt cartouche “L. Cummings.” in Gothic letters. The country of origin may be either France, in which case it was probably brought here blank and then decorated here or possibly it was made by an American manufacturer. The hard paste porcelain is unlikely to have been made in England, though they did on occasion import French blanks. Anyway, nice decoration from about 1870. 9 inch...
