  • German Faience Pierced Basket Made by Johann Jacob Kaiser Circa 1808

    $340.00

    This attractive white faience basket has an oval pierced body around a solid bottom.
    It is modeled on a wicker basket, a popular motif for late 18th and early 19th-century Continental ceramics.
    Made to hold bread, this was a valuable item at the kitchen table in the morning.
    The basket was manufactured circa 1808 at the Durlach factory in Germany. At that time, Durlach (Baden) was one of many German centers of faience production.
    The Durlach factory was founded In 1723 by J H Wackenfeld. Until 1818 there was no factory mark, but artists signed their work; among the most prominent was Johann Jacob Kaiser (1773–1835), who signed his works with a black “K” (see Image #6).
    After 1818 the factory’s earthenware was marked “Durlach.”*

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

    $18,700.00

    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.

    Dimensions: 14″ diameter of base x 9″ tall        Condition: Very Good. The snail’s antennae are restored. There are some very tiny losses to the glaze. There is a very fine, thin, professionally sealed hairline on the edge of the cover (See image #7). It can only be seen from the inside.

  • Pair of 18th Century Ludwigsburg Dishes

    $680.00

    From the Collection of Mario Buatta
    Mario loved flowers and he loved well-painted flowers on porcelain.

    This pair of Ludwigsburg dishes was made in Germany circa 1780. The outstanding quality of the hand-painted flowers is their exquisite liveliness. The flowers on the two plates are bursting with life! Hand-painted in monochrome purple each plate has a beautiful floral bouquet in the center and smaller sprigs of flowers decorating the plate as if they were strewn about.

    The material is hard-paste porcelain.

    Both dishes have the 18th-century factory mark of Ludwigsburg Porcelain which was two “C”s interlocked in blue, with one reversed, with a ducal coronet above as can be seen in images 7 and 8.

    Dimensions: 9.25” diameter

    Condition: Excellent
