Creamware Heart Shaped Dish England Late 18th Century Made by Wedgwood and Co$240.00
The first popular use of the heart shape as a symbol of love is often attributed to the importance of courtly romance in late-medieval life. At a time when chivalrous knights and damsels in distress made for romantic tales, tokens of love were deeply significant and very popular.
This creamware heart-shaped dish was made in late 18th century England, circa 1790 by Wedgwood & Co.*
The decoration is elegant: a floral swag of green, blue, and orange echoes the heart shape of the dish. The border is decorated with cobalt blue dots, accentuating the dish’s outline. At the center is a single small flower.
With its warm creamware body and elegant decoration, this would also be a perfect “Hello” dish when placed near the front door of the home. It would also prove useful for holding keys and other small things.

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.
Pair Antique Dishes Elephants Image Shows One of Two$300.00
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: $300 for the pair of dishes

History of creamware
Creamware was created in the 1760s by Josiah Wedgwood. He was the first of the English potters to produce a cream-colored earthenware with a light-colored body. Wedgwood marketed these wares as Queensware after Queen Charlotte gave Wedgwood the honor of ordering a set. As its popularity increased, many of the other English potters began to make creamware as well. It replaced saltglaze stoneware as the dinnerware of all but the high aristocracy, which most likely would have had a service of Chinese export porcelain dishes.

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.
