A hard paste porcelain shallow bowl commonly used for salad with a dentil gilt rim and hand painted with bouquets and sprays of flowers. The simplicity of the painting is not an indication of poor work, there was at times a fashion for simple looking things; think of Marie Antoinette at her dairy at Versailles. This bowl is from the same period. 8 1/4 inch (21 cm) diameter.

Condition: No chips, cracks, hairlines, or repairs. Slight wear to the gilding.

Dinner plate in Sevres pattern but probably Minton c. 1850

A soft paste porcelain dinner plate unmarked, but probably Minton. In the “feuille de choux” pattern with hand painted flowers, blue accents and heavy gilding. These knock offs of 18th century Sevres were popular from the mid 19th century (c.1850) onwards and Minton made many of the very good ones. 9 ½ inches (24 cm) diameter.

Condition: no chips, cracks, hairlines or repairs. This plate looks as if it was never used.

A very large albumen print of the statue of St. George by Donatello. Originally sculpted about 1416 for the Orsanmichele in Florence, the statue and niche are now at the Bargello. The photograph is very large and dates to the last quarter of the 19th century. Since at that time there were no enlargers, the glass plate negative would have been of the same size as the image. A number of Italian photographers are known for taking images of Renaissance works, including Giorgio Sommer and Fratelli Al...

An unsigned watercolor on heavy textured white drawing paper of corn ricks and pumpkins on a gentle slope with blue sky above and hills in the distance. It is well executed with the focus carried to the rick in the front by the use of details there and looser painting in other parts of the watercolor. The bowl done on the backside of the page also shows the artists quality. The bowl seems to clearly indicate that the work was done in the earlier part of the 20th century. The Watercolor is 12 by ...

A medium size porcelain bowl with a lattice impressed border at the top and blue hand painted flowers. On the underside are the three waves and the number two, both hand painted in underglaze blue. Additionally there is a hand incised three in the body. This piece must have been early to have escaped the factory with the fairly dramatic warping that must have occurred during firing. The rim feels unglazed, so it may have had a cover. 3 inches (8cm) tall, 5 ½ inches (14.5 cm) diameter.
