  • Mochaware Mug with Mocha “Trees” & Inscribed “E-R” under a Crown and “19__” .

    $430.00

    This style of mochaware mug was among the most popular throughout the 19th century. The mug is decorated with blue and beige bands of slip and further decorated with an all-around design of mocha “trees” On the front of the mug just above the base is a small inscription “E-R” under a crown and “19__”. The date is left unfinished. I believe the mug was made by a Staffordshire factory in 1936. In that year, King Edward VIII (Edward Regis or “E R”) began to talk of abdication to marry Wallis Simpson even before he was crowned King. If the mug were made during the coronation year when the makers did not know if Edward would be crowned King or soon abdicate, this could account for the unfinished date. The underside of the mug has a plastic label, which seems to be a museum catalog number.

  • Worcester Porcelain Sauceboat, Made in England, Mid-18th Century

    $720.00

    This sauceboat is beautifully shaped and hand painted with a light green lettuce leaf pattern on its rim, small painted butterflies, sprigs of flowers, and a stock handle. The sauceboat is unmarked, as were many early Worcester pieces.

    Some of the most exquisite English porcelain ever made was manufactured in the 18th century by a factory in Worcester founded by a group of investors, including Dr. John Wall. In the 1750s, they began to manufacture soft-paste porcelain at their factory, ‘Worcester Tonquin Manufacture’” In the early years, virtually everything produced was functional like this sauceboat. By 1755 Worcester was making the best English blue and white porcelain tea wares that money could buy, as well as more expensive colored enamel sets. Porcelain was sold to the trade through a warehouse opened in Aldersgate Street, London in 1754 and through Samuel Bradley’s shop in Worcester High Street.

    Dimensions: 9.5″ long x 4.75″ wide x tall 5.5

    Condition: Excellent. In this sauceboat, there is a small original firing line in the foot. Due to the shrinkage in the kiln, items can have small firing lines or develop crazing over time, which should not be seen as damage but as an imperfection of the maker’s recipes.

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

    $2,700.00

    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

  • Creamware Mochaware Pitcher Decorated with Cable and Dot Decoration, England

    $3,400.00

    A mochaware pitcher with cable and trailed dot decoration was made in England, circa 1810. The center section of this pitcher is colored with vivid orange slip. This orange slip is further decorated with a rarely seen combination of white trailed dots and a three-color cable of white, blue, and midnight brown. Along the pitcher’s top and bottom, we see traditional green glazed bands with a herringbone design. For a collector of mochaware, a most interesting aspect of this unique pitcher is the midnight brown on the thin brown bands has run down. This is the result of the acid in the midnight brown reacting with the alkaline slip colors below it. This is the first time I have seen this effect. The lathe turner must have known of this chemical interaction, and the running down effect would have been a rare decorative choice.

    Dimensions: 7″ height x 5.5″ diameter

    Condition: In general excellent with a tiny chip on the spout invisibly restored.

The middle of the tankard is decorated with a large band of milk chocolate brown slip and further decorated with four horizontal wavy lines of trailing white slip separated by a vertical line of five white dots. Above and below the center are bands of medium blue slip. To accomplish this, trailed decoration required experience and great dexterity on the part of the lathe turner.

  • Christmas Colors Antique Nailsea Glass Bell Red & White with Green Handle c 1840

    $640.00

    Made in the Nailsea glassworks in England circa 1840 the blown glass is colored with red and white marbling and is elegantly shaped. It has an exquisite forest green glass handle. The sound of the bell ringing is lovely.
    In the 1840s bells like this one were wedding bells. Given as gifts to the newly married couple as a reminder of the church bells that were rung when the couples walked from the church. The ringing of wedding bells is a tradition that traces back to Scotland. Bells were first rung in the churches of Scotland to announce newlyweds. The ringing bells spread the news of the marriage across long distances, so bells after a wedding let the whole area know that the couple was now happily married.

    Why we love it: The colors and the pattern!

  • 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”
    London…”

    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.
