  • Set of Six Admiral Nelson Pattern Plates English Imari by Coalport Circa 1815

    $2,800.00

    Why we love it: The intensity of the Imari colors and the fabulous pink spotted lion. This set of Coalport Admiral Nelson dishes was hand-painted in England during the Regency period circa 1815. To see the wonderful hand-painting, look, for example, at the difference between the lions in images #5 and #6. The plates are decorated in a traditional, vibrant Imari palette: richly gilded and painted in cobalt blue and iron red. The central scene shows a classic Imari image of a vase on a garden terrace. But, the decoration also offers us a whimsical pink lion and turquoise waterbirds. These were never seen in Japanese Imari (the pink lion is on the right side of each dish, and the green waterbirds are on the left side).

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

    $470.00

    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.

  • Victorian Watercolor Portrait “Scandalous” Lady Painted by M King Signed Dated 1829

    $730.00

    The hand-written notes on the back of this miniature watercolor tell what was at the time a scandalous story.
    The portrait is of Hanah Tichbon. The inscription reads in part, “went to the races…, “ran away from Sheffets…” and later ran away in London.” Portraits in the Victorian period were done to present public identities. On the back of this portrait, we have a hand-written inscription that provides insight into the private life of the sitter. It is an intriguing and seemingly sad story of a young woman’s life which is literally hidden behind her portrait.
    At this time in England, if a married woman was unhappy with her situation, there was, almost without exception, nothing she could do about it. Except in extremely rare cases, a woman could not obtain a divorce and, until 1891, if she ran away from an intolerable marriage, the police could capture and return her. All this was sanctioned by church, law, custom, history, and approved of by Victorian society in general. The story this portrait and inscription tell is a genuine piece of history.
    In the portrait, Hanah wears white with a gold chain and cross around her neck. She holds a book, quite probably a Bible. The image infers that our sitter is a proper young lady.
    In reality, her life story was not anything like it appeared. This pencil and watercolor portrait was done on card. Written on the back of the painted card is: “Hanah Tichbon Alias Hanah Honsett born Sept 22nd 1809 Married Thomas Matcham on the 6 of Oct’br 1829 left him at Bath in Aug’st 1831 for six week… On Aug’st 2nd 1835 went to Brighton races and stayt 6 weeks. Oct’br 22nd 1837 ran away from Sheffets 8 month away July 22 1841 ran away in London and was found” Signed “Painted by Mr. King” and dated “1829”.

  • Pair Antique Dishes Elephants Image Shows One of Two

    $530.00

    We are pleased to offer this pair of antique English dishes showing an elephant in an Asian setting (see image # 3 to see both dishes in the pair side by side). Made circa 1800, these octagonal pearl glazed creamware dishes feature a lively scene with two figures riding an Indian elephant through an exotic landscape. The combination of several “Asian” style motifs was a common theme in 19th century England. Along a winding road, we see large fruit trees and fenced gardens. The road leads into the distance, where we see a tall pagoda temple.
    The pattern is printed in brown with overglaze enameling in orange, yellow, green, and blue.
    The dishes are unmarked but are similar to the later Wedgwood & Co. “Processional Elephant and Howdah” pattern made in the mid-19th century. Minnie Holdaway suggests that these dishes were the inspiration for the later Wedgwood & Co. pattern since they date to the early 19th century.
    Dimensions: 9 inches diameter x 1 inch height
    Condition: Excellent                 Price: $530 for the pair of dishes

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

    $1,600.00

    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.

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.
