The edge of each dish is beautifully gilded.

  • 19th Century Minton Ornithological Porcelain Dessert Service

    $2,900.00

    A partial dessert service by Minton, hand-painted with ornithological scenes after designs by Joseph Smith. The service comprises two small compotes and four dessert dishes.

    This Minton dessert service is a stunning example of English porcelain craftsmanship. Intricate apple-green lattice designs are enhanced with gilding. The compotes’ feet and dishes’ rims are reticulated, further contributing to the set’s delicacy. The reticulated shape is known as the “Devon” shape. The most special feature of this service, however, are the meticulously rendered (and labeled) ornithological scenes, which point to a 19th-century spirit of scientific classification. One dish features the impressed wheel date mark for 1872.

    Dimensions:
    Compotes – 6 1/2 in. Dm x 4 1/2 in. H (11.8 cm H x 16 cm D)
    Dishes – 9 1/4 in. Dm x 3/4 in. H (2 cm H x 23 cm D)

    Condition: Excellent. Some light staining to the body of one plate.

  • Antique Drabware Dish Decorated w/ a Bird a Hawk from a Series of Minton Dishes

    $280.00

    This striking oval-shaped Drabware dish shows a hawk perched on a log. The image is crisp. The hawk is printed in great detail in simple monochrome gray; we get a feeling for this bird’s ferocity. The background is printed in monochrome orange, which has a softer feel than the monochromatic gray. Made in England circa 1810, the brilliant Regency period gilding around the border and the edge adds to the dish’s beauty. The underside of the dish has the pattern number 235.

    Dimensions: 10″ x 7″ x 1.75″ height

  • Minton Chinoiserie Dish

    $520.00

    From the Collection of Mario Buatta
    Mario loved finding unique pieces if they were also beautiful.
    This is a rare early Minton porcelain dish with a wonderful hand-painted Chinoiserie scene. Made in England circa 1810. The dish features a delightful chinoiserie scene of a Chinese boy playing in a field. The pieces in this charming pattern were not identical: each piece would have portrayed figures performing a different activity. This pattern’s variety can be seen in a cup and saucer in this pattern, which we also acquired from Mario’s estate.
    The reverse shows the Minton mark in underglaze blue with pattern number 539.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          For more information on the Chinese Sports Series, see Loren Zeller’s article “Jean-Baptiste Pillement’s Recueil de Plusieurs Jeux d’Enfants Chinois: A Review of the Artist’s Work as Source for 18th and 19th Century Ceramic Designs” in the Northern Ceramic Society Journal, Volume 32, June 2016.

    Dimensions: Diameter 8.25 in. x H 1.5 in.
