    A pair of blue and white Dutch Delft dishes hand-painted in the chinoiserie style. The center of each dish shows two flowering plants in full bloom. Look closely, and you will see that all the painting is done in lines as if by pen or pencil. This suggests that an experienced painter outlined the images, which an apprentice or less experienced painter then filled in. The delicate lobed edges are the final touch that makes these dishes especially wonderful.

  • Antique Faience Cabbage Form Soup Tureen Hand-Painted in Brussels Circa 1765


    This faience soup tureen was made in the Philippe Mombaers factory in Brussels circa 1765; the cabbage tureen, its cover, and stand are painted in green tones with yellow highlights. The color combination is exquisite. The tureen is a gem of naturalism. Beautifully molded, the cabbage sits on a stand formed by cabbage leaves. The finial is in the form of a snail. Practiced gardeners know that snails are often found in the cabbage patch late in the growing season. A snail munching on this faience cabbage would have delighted the dinner guests when the soup tureen was presented at the table. Tureens in vegetable and animal forms were the height of a fashionable table setting in the Louis XV period.

    Cheers to welcoming friends!
    This is a beautiful set of ten large (8.5inches tall) English mid-18th century ( circa 1760) clear champagne flutes (even though in the main image the glass does not appear clear, that is due to the photoshopping. The glasses are clear glass, see the other photos.)The funnel-shaped bowls are set upon a tubular stem rising from a circular foot. On the bottom of the foot is a pontil mark (see images). The mark is the scar where the pontil was broken from the hand-blown glass. This indicates that the glass was blown freehand as it was in the 18th century.

  • Antique Blue and White Delftware Carafe “Boy”


    This charming mid-18th century English delftware carafe features the word “Boy” painted in underglaze sky blue on a light blue ground.
    In the 17th and 18th centuries, the term “Boy” was used to address a male of any age, indicating familiarity or friendship.
    This type of delftware carafe was first made in England at Aldgate in the last quarter of the 17th century.
    Most likely, this carafe was made to hold beer served in a tavern.
    It has two small loop handles on each side so that it could be hung on a wall when not in use.
    In the 17th and 18th centuries, carafe bottles like this were made in both England and The Netherlands for export to England.
    A carafe like this might have inscriptions, labels, dates, names, or, like ours, a sign of goodwill and friendship.
    Beer was a crucial part of the daily diet for many people in 18th-century England. It served as a source of hydration and provided necessary calories and nutrients. Due to inadequate sanitation practices and the unreliable availability of safe drinking water, beer was often consumed as a safer alternative to water.
    Dimensions: Height 8 in. x Diameter 5 in.
    Condition: Excellent. Small expected glaze skips on the high points where the original glaze did not stick.
    Price: $800
