  • Early 19th Century Creil French Mochaware Coffee Pot

    $1,900.00

    A Creil mochaware peach-colored coffee pot made circa 1810.

    This elegant coffee pot features a dark brown mocha design on a light peach body. Mochaware was developed in Staffordshire in the late 18th century, but spread to continental Europe through the Middle-Eastern moss agate trade. Moss agate stones, which sport a similar tree-like design, were exported to the West through the port of al Makha, translated in English to “Mocha.” While moss agates were used as semiprecious stones in jewelry and objets de vertu for the upper classes, their dendrite design inspired potters such as Creil to create mochawares for more quotidian usage.

    Dimensions: 10 in. H x 6 1/4 at widest point (25.4 cm H x 15.9 cm W)

    Condition: Excellent visual condition, with invisible professional restoration to cover and spout. Some minor staining to clay body under the glaze on the foot.

  • 19th Century Minton Ornithological Porcelain Dessert Service

    $2,900.00

    A partial dessert service by Minton, hand-painted with ornithological scenes after designs by Joseph Smith. The service comprises two small compotes and four dessert dishes.

    This Minton dessert service is a stunning example of English porcelain craftsmanship. Intricate apple-green lattice designs are enhanced with gilding. The compotes’ feet and dishes’ rims are reticulated, further contributing to the set’s delicacy. The reticulated shape is known as the “Devon” shape. The most special feature of this service, however, are the meticulously rendered (and labeled) ornithological scenes, which point to a 19th-century spirit of scientific classification. One dish features the impressed wheel date mark for 1872.

    Dimensions:
    Compotes – 6 1/2 in. Dm x 4 1/2 in. H (11.8 cm H x 16 cm D)

  • Early 19th Century Orange English Mochaware Waste Bowl

    $1,900.00

    An English mochaware waste bowl in the London shape with cable or “earthworm” decoration, dating to circa 1820.

    Developed in Staffordshire in the late 18th century, dipped wares utilized colored liquid clay slips to create surprisingly modern abstract and geometric motifs. This small waste bowl features a cable design with marbled colors of dark brown, blue, and white slip on an orange ground. The bowl’s rim has a rouletted band of chevrons lightly glazed in green. The bright color palette of this bowl dates it to an earlier period of production, circa 1820. Later dipped wares have much more subdued colors.

    Condition: The bowl is in very good condition, with two tiny chips to the rim each measuring approximately 0.2 cm in length. The underside of the base has some glaze flaking. There is a hairline circular crack in the well of the bowl.

  • Set of 11 Early Spode Ironstone Imari Dessert Dishes Made circa 1815

    $1,650.00

    A set of 11 Imari style ironstone dessert dishes, made by Spode circa 1815.

    Josiah Spode II began producing stone china in 1813 as an alternative to porcelain. Stone china, also known as ironstone due to its hard and durable fabric, became famous for its porcelain-like greyish blue glaze and glassy surface. So popular was this new medium that Queen Charlotte purchased her own stone china service from Spode’s Portugal Street showroom. These dessert dishes are early examples of Spode Stone China; in 1822 the company introduced an improved body marketed as “New Stone,” and thereafter items were branded as such.

    Dishes are marked with pattern number 2283 in iron red and feature the printed Spode Stone China mark in underglaze blue.

    Dimensions: 8 in. Dm x 1/2 in. H (20.3 cm Dm x 1.4 cm H)

    Condition: Excellent overall. Light wear to some enamels and gilding on dishes commensurate with age and use. The plates with the least and most amounts of wear are pictured.

  • Animalia Life-Size Model of a Rabbit Hand-Painted Made of Terracotta

    $4,700.00

    This is a lovely life-size hand-painted rabbit expertly modeled in terracotta. Combining a high-quality model and terrific painting with great attention to detail created this realistic sculpture that is so life-like. She has personality: sitting contentedly, looking at the viewer. Possibly she’s waiting for a handful of lettuce. Made in Austria in the late 19th century, our rabbit measures 12″ long x 10.75″ x 6″ across. Since we found her in England, most likely, she was made for the English market. In Victorian England, animal figures of lions, cows, dogs, and other animals were quite popular. But, a figure of a rabbit is an unusual find.

  • Coalport Porcelain Teapot Stand Hand-Painted Admiral Nelson Pattern circa 1810

    $330.00

    Why we love it: The intensity of the Imari colors and the fabulous pink spotted lion. This Coalport Admiral Nelson oval dish was hand-painted in England during the Regency period circa 1810. It is decorated in a traditional, vibrant Imari palette: richly gilded and painted cobalt blue and iron red. The central scene shows a classic Imari image of a vase on a garden terrace. But, the border of the dish offers a whimsical pink lion and turquoise water birds. These were never seen in Japanese Imari (the pink lion is on the top left side of the border, the green waterbirds are on the far left). However, they are the distinguishing characteristics of the Coalport Admiral Nelson pattern.

  • Odd Fellows Creamware Pitcher Very Large England Circa 1850

    $1,640.00

    This very large creamware pitcher is fully decorated with the imagery and symbols of the Odd Fellows (see images).
    Odd Fellows promote philanthropy, the ethic of reciprocity, and charity.
    At the front of the pitcher, we see a panel with the words “We are odd Fellows When we act and Do the  thing which is Right.”
    Around this panel are the words “How grand in Age How fair in Youth is Holly Friendship, Love and Truth.”
    Above the panel is an open palm with a heart symbolic of charity given from the heart.
    On both sides of the pitcher is the Odd Fellows motto, “Amicitia Amor et Veritas,”; which translates to Friendship, Love, and Truth.
    The motto is seen together with an image of Lady Justice and an angel holding a budding branch. Lady Justice personifies morality in judicial systems. The budding branch symbolizes the idea that truth can “draw freshness and verdure” from the “most barren facts and common things in life” and give them life and interest.
    Above all of this is a shining sun. As the sun shines on us all, it symbolizes impartiality in the benevolence of the Odd Fellows.

    Condition: An invisible restoration to the underside of the vase, only, and some scratching, particularly to the lustered leaves and the flowers and the lustered top edge.

  • A Large Mochaware Mug With Rare Combed Down Rows of Slip

    $3,300.00

    An exceptional mochaware mug with rare combed-down slip decoration. The renowned expert on Mocaware, Jonathan Rickard, lists this type of decoration in “Mocha and Related Dipped Wares 1770-1939” in a section entitled “Combinations and Other Oddities”, pages 106-121. According to Rickard “A further enhancement of the marbling process involved the use of a tool that functioned much like a comb by dragging the toothed tool through the wet marbling in a … constant direction”. The resulting decoration is exquisite. The handle of the mug has lovely foliate terminals. The top and bottom of the mug are each decorated with three bands of blue slip.                                                                                                                                                                                    The managers of mochaware factories often only specified the style of the work but gave each turner some freedom regarding the choice of design and colors.

With rare exceptions, each piece of mochaware is unique.

  • Mochaware Pitcher Decorated with “”Trees” and Seaweed” England, circa 1810

    $1,900.00

    Made in England circa 1810 this mochaware pitcher is decorated with “Trees” and “Seaweed.” It is molded in an elegant shape with an extra-wide mouth probably made this way so that pieces of fruit in a punch could pour out. The pitcher has bands of orange-brown slip decorated with both “Trees” and “Seaweed”. These dendritic designs are part of what make mochaware is unique. The design is formed by using small amounts of an acidic dark brown liquid and carefully dropping this liquid onto the alkaline orange slip before firing. The resultant chemical reaction causes the tree-seaweed pattern. Because the patterns are caused by chemical reactions each one is unique. The managers of mochaware factories often only specified the style of the work but gave each turner some freedom regarding the choice of design and colors. On this pitcher, the slip bands are separated by six thin bands of impressed white pearls and two white bands of impressed waves.

    Dimensions: 6.75 inches tall x 7 inches deep x 4.5 inches diameter at widest point

    Condition: Excellent with very slight fritting and toning along the top edge.

With rare exceptions, each piece of mochaware is unique. To make this design, the lathe operator would have removed the pitcher from the lathe and poured the colored slip onto the pitcher. Thin lines of bright orange slip encircling the pitcher energize the freeform design. Crisp leaf terminals on the handle add to the beauty of the piece.

    Dimensions: 7″ tall x 5.25″ diameter at the widest point

  • Mochaware Creamware Mug Made in England circa 1800 Decorated with “Seaweed”

    $2,300.00

    Made in England circa 1800, this exquisite mug is decorated with three milk chocolate-colored slip bands, each band with midnight brown “seaweed” over the slip. The brown bands are highlighted by a band of green glazed rouletting along the mug’s top and base. The seaweed-like pattern results from a dynamic process in which the contact line between two liquids, the acidic dark brown coloring, and the alkaline slip below becomes unstable. The acid/base chemical reaction drives the instability. To make this design, the lathe turner removed the bowl from the lathe. Then he dipped his brush into the dark brown acidic concoction and touched the brush just outside the bottom edge of the brown slip bands, whereupon the dark brown coloring ran quickly spreading to form the “seaweed.”

    Dimensions: 6″ diameter x 4″ tall

    Condition: Excellent
