A Large Mochaware Mug With Rare Combed Down Rows of Slip$3,800.00
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.
Condition: Very slight wear to the bottom edge and handle, a very small flake on the handle see image #4 —a few very small firing and slip turning defects as originally made (see images).

Pair of 18th Century Swansea Creamware Botanical Dishes$1,500.00
From the Private Collection of Mario Buatta
This pair of 18th-century botanical dishes is part of the private collection of Mario Buatta. This is an especially lovely pair of dishes. Mario loved the beautiful flowers painted on English botanical dishes. He was our very best client for four decades. Just after the very successful Sotheby’s sale Bardith was privileged to purchase items from his estate.
This pair of 18th-century hand-painted creamware dishes was made by Swansea in Wales circa 1790. Dishes showing a single botanical flower were especially popular in late 18th century Great Britain as the scientific revolution began and British ships traveled the world often returning with new and unique specimens of flowers.
The Swansea factory in Wales provided some of the very finest botanicals painted on dishes.
The designs for these dishes were taken from Curtis’s Botanical Magazine begun in 1787.
On the back of the dish is the name of the flower inscribed in iron red.
Each dish is named on the back in underglaze red:
The pair of dishes measure 7.75″ diameter.
On the reverse, they are named: “Two Leave’d Lady’s Sliper” and “Virgin’s Bower”

Wedgwood Antique Creamware Dinner Service with Gilded Chevrons England ca. 1820$22,400.00
This large and extensive Wedgwood creamware dinner service is decorated with a border featuring gold chevrons set between two enameled blue lines.
The creamware body has a warm look. The elegant gold chevron decoration along the borders creates a formal feeling. The combination of the soft creamware and the geometric ornament along the border is beautiful.
In this extensive service are two elegant soup tureens. They have knobs rising from painted leaves decorated with gilt and blue enamel. These tureens are described in the 1790 Wedgwood catalog found in the Wedgwood Museum as “pearl-glazed Queensware soup tureen and stand shape # 3”. Josiah Wedgwood’s creamware gained recognition when King George III and his consort, Queen Charlotte decided to favor local artisans to boost the country’s economy. A tea set was presented to the palace in the last quarter of 1765. Wedgwood then renamed his creamware pottery “Queensware”. In the late 18th and early 19th century Wedgwood Queensware was the first English pottery which for elegance and perfection of potting could compete successfully with the porcelain production of the European continent.
