  • Strasbourg Faience Dish by Paul Hannong, circa 1755

    Background of French Faience
    Faience, or tin-glazed and enameled earthenware, first emerged in France during the sixteenth century, reaching widespread usage among elite patrons during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
    Faience is distinguished by the opaque white color achieved by adding tin oxide to the glaze. French faience is typically divided into two types. Grand feu (high fire) describes pieces decorated with glaze and metallic oxides before being fired a single time at a high temperature of around 1650°F (900°C). Petit feu (low-fire) faience refers to a process whereby the clay body is fired before glazed, decorated with metallic oxides, and then fired at a lower temperature. The lower firing temperature of petit feu faience enabled greater precision in painting techniques and greater variety in the range of colors.

Kraak decoration typically consists of a central medallion with a rim divided into eight sections with their own decorative content. Kraak porcelain was made in the Ming and early Qing dynasties and is one of the earliest blue and white porcelain styles made for the European market. It was first brought to Europe by the Portuguese. The name “Kraak” is a Dutch transcription of the Portuguese word ‘Carraca,’ or ‘Carrack’ in English, a ship the Portuguese used at the time. The term ‘Kraak’ appears to have been first used in the seventeenth century by the Dutch, and it is now the accepted name for this type of Chinese porcelain.

    Background of English Delft:
    The art of making Delft began in England in the Mid-1500s. An English delftware jug has been found in East Malling, Kent, with a silver mount hallmarked 1550, which is presumed to be the earliest date of English delftware manufacture. John Stow’s Survey of London (1598) records the arrival in 1567 of two Antwerp potters, Jasper Andries and Jacob Jansen, in Norwich, where they made “Gally Paving Tiles and vessels for Apothecaries and others…”
    The production of Delft reached its high point in the mid-1700s around the time this pair of chargers were made; after that, creamware pottery began to replace Delft as the useful pottery of the English middle class.

A beautiful figure of Venus surmounts the cover. The overall effect is magnificent!

    The Platt Menage is now mounted on a block of cherry wood secured by museum putty (so it is removable).

    Dimensions: 11.5″ tall x 5.5″ diameter at the widest point x 2.75″ across the base

    Condition: Very good, with some excellent invisible restoration to several small chips on the mermaids’ wings.

    According to Peter Walton, the attribution of this Platt Menage to Leeds Pottery is traditional (see pg. 121 in Creamware and other English Pottery at Temple Newsam House Leeds. Mr. Walton continues to describe the Platt Menagein plate 462. It is described as havingPale cream with a yellow glaze.” Walton quotes Jewitt 1878, I, p.477, fig 854, “They (Platt Menages) were greatly admired by the early collectors. It is well to show collectors to what degree of perfection in design these almost forgotten works had achieved.”

  • Pair Dragons in Compartments Plates with Scottish Armorial of the Clan Irvine

    $3,200.00

    We are pleased to offer this pair of Dragons in Compartments pattern plates. They were hand-painted by Chamberlain Worcester. The plates are painted with mythical beasts alternating with images of vases all within lappet-shaped panels. This wonderful pattern is also known as Bengal Tiger or Kylin in compartments. It was first made by Worcester in the 18th century. The pattern is an exotic English interpretation of Chinese export porcelains from the Kangxi period.
    This outstanding pair of dishes feature an important armorial of the Scottish Clan Irvine. The dishes were beautifully hand-painted in the Chamberlains Worcester factory circa 1820. Worcester first made this pattern in the mid-18th century. It is an exquisite English interpretation of Chinese export porcelains from the Kangxi period (1661–1722). The armorial displays a swan with a crown around her neck. The swan is the royal bird of Great Britain and symbolizes harmony with the royal house of the United Kingdom. The use of this well-known symbol asserts the loyalty of the Clan Irvine to the English monarch. This image on the Irvine crest is a late 18th-century creation.

    In Chinese tradition, both peonies and phoenixes have important symbolic meanings. Peonies symbolize royalty, rank, wealth, and honor and are much loved for their bold size and colors.

In 1833 William Taylor Copeland, William Copeland’s son acquired the business in partnership with Thomas Garrett. The factory’s productions from this period were marked ‘Copeland and Garrett.’ Typical wares produced during the Copeland and Garrett period were in the rococo style, which was fashionable then. In 1846, William Taylor Copeland acquired the company outright, and he and four generations of his descendants controlled the company until 1966. William Taylor Copeland was a classic Victorian industrialist, combining ownership of the factory with a career in politics and public life – as a member of Parliament. Under the Copelands, the factory vied with Minton in making some of the most spectacular ceramics wares of the age. Gifted artists, such as C. F. Hurten, were imported from continental factories, and superb pieces were exhibited at the Great Exhibition of London in 1851, International Exhibitions in London in 1862, and Paris in 1878.

  • Chelsea Red Anchor Porcelain Dish Mid-18th Century England 1752-1756

    $1,140.00

    The wares of the Chelsea red anchor period (1752-1758), when this dish was made, are generally thought to be the finest work produced by the factory.*
    The charm of this Chelsea soft paste porcelain dish lies in the quality of the soft paste porcelain itself, the warm white glaze, and the soft colors of the fabulous hand-painted flowers and insects. The flowers and insects are painted in exquisite soft colors, which seem to sink into the soft paste porcelain.
    The painting is at the highest level of artistry. In the center, we see a loose bouquet of scattered flower sprigs, the largest sprig with a gorgeous purple rose, and a hairy caterpillar nearby. The border has crisp flowerhead and lattice molding reserving eight small panels painted with beautiful flowers and insects, one showing a butterfly and one a butterfly next to a ladybug. Along the rim, the dish has a brown line traditional to Chelsea.
    Begun in 1743, the Chelsea porcelain factory was England’s first important porcelain manufacturer. The factory made soft paste porcelain which is different than “true” hard paste porcelain and does not require the high firing temperatures or the unique mineral ingredients needed for “true” hard paste porcelain.                                                   Soft paste originated in the attempts by European potters to replicate hard paste Chinese porcelain.
    A dish decorated similar to ours and marked with the Chelsea red anchor is in the British Museum, accession number 1940,1101.70.

  • Set Fourteen Coalport Money Tree Porcelain Dishes Hand-Painted England C-1820

    $5,600.00

    We are proud to offer this set of fourteen Coalport Money Tree pattern plates. This fabulous Coalport pattern is also known as the Rock and Tree pattern.

English patterns like this were inspired by Japanese Imari designs, which were very popular in Europe during the Regency Period. However, English porcelain is whiter than Japanese porcelain. The result is that the colors seem brighter and livelier when contrasted with the white ground.

  • Pair of French Mid-19th Century Flower Decorated Creamware Dishes

    $320.00

    This pair of French creamware dishes shows sprigs of beautiful flowers. The images are crisp. We see two shades of purple, green, and yellow. The color combination is perfect. Made by the Creil-Montereau factory in the mid-19th century, circa 1860, the pattern was inspired by the hand-painted flowers on 18th-century French and English porcelain. The dishes are made of pearled creamware, pottery perfected by an Englishman, Josiah Wedgwood, in the 1780s. Under the artistic and technical direction of native English potters, Creil-Montereau introduced France to transfer printing on creamware and raised it to a high state of perfection during its peak years in the 19th century. The pottery factory of Creil (Oise) was founded in 1797. In 1840 the Creil factory merged with the Montereau factory (Seine et Marne). The company became “Creil et Montereau Faïenceries” under the name Lebeuf, Milliet & Co. (LM & Co.), and continued until 1876.

    Dimensions: 8″ in diameter x 1.5″ deep.

    Condition: Excellent with the very, very slightest rubbing to the colors.

  • Blue and White Dutch Delft Charger 18th Century Made, Circa 1770

    $830.00

    This hand-painted Dutch Delft charger features a delightful, topsy turvy chinoiserie scene with a fresh point of view. We see a wall of blue rockwork stretching to a blue sky. Around and seemingly hanging from the rockwork is a flower-filled vine. Below that is a pagoda, then water, and a diminutive pagoda. The wide border is decorated with lovely floral designs.

    Dimensions: 13.75″

    Condition: Excellent with small edge fits invisibly restored
