  • 18th Century Italian Doccia Porcelain Dinner Service

    $4,000.00

    A dinner service comprising six dinner dishes and six soup dishes made by the Doccia Porcelain Manufactory, circa 1750.

    Italy was the site of Europe’s first porcelain production: in Florence between 1575 and 1587 under the patronage of Francesco I de’ Medici. The Doccia Porcelain Manufactory, founded nearly 200 years later, continued the tradition of Italian porcelain with a hard-paste body that was later glazed with a tin glaze. This dinner set is decorated with the al tulipano motif, a design that is one of the most prevalent in Doccia wares. The central flower is not a tulip but an interpretation of the peonies used in the Chinese Famille Rose porcelain.

    Dimensions:
    – Soup dishes: 9 1/4 in. diameter x 1 1/2 in. height (23.1 cm diameter x 3.8 cm height)
    – Dinner dishes: 9 1/4 in. diameter x 1 in. height (23.1 cm diameter x 2.4 cm height)

    Condition: Excellent. Light wear to enamels throughout commensurate with age and use. Faint use marks visible on some dishes. One dinner plate with chip to underside of rim measuring 1 cm.

    Note: 1 dinner dish and 2 soup dishes are not transparent, a characteristic of porcelain. These 3 dishes are porcelain with a tin glaze which makes them opaque and dates them to 1790-1800.

  • 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.

  • Set of 11 Early Spode Ironstone Imari Dessert Dishes Made circa 1815

    $1,650.00

    A set of 11 Imari style ironstone dessert dishes, made by Spode circa 1815.

    Josiah Spode II began producing stone china in 1813 as an alternative to porcelain. Stone china, also known as ironstone due to its hard and durable fabric, became famous for its porcelain-like greyish blue glaze and glassy surface. So popular was this new medium that Queen Charlotte purchased her own stone china service from Spode’s Portugal Street showroom. These dessert dishes are early examples of Spode Stone China; in 1822 the company introduced an improved body marketed as “New Stone,” and thereafter items were branded as such.

    Dishes are marked with pattern number 2283 in iron red and feature the printed Spode Stone China mark in underglaze blue.

    Dimensions: 8 in. Dm x 1/2 in. H (20.3 cm Dm x 1.4 cm H)

    Condition: Excellent overall. Light wear to some enamels and gilding on dishes commensurate with age and use. The plates with the least and most amounts of wear are pictured.

  • Set of Six Large Blue and White Delft Chargers Hand-Painted 18th-Century

    $9,600.00

    Why We Love It: The deep cobalt blue is fabulous! This group makes a true blue statement.

    We are pleased to offer this set of six Dutch Delft chargers in the “Theeboom” pattern showing a tea plant with a fan-shaped bouquet of leaves and flowers. This is one of the most exquisite hand-painted designs made on Delft chargers in the 18th century, which explains why it was so popular at the time. The pattern is lush and full of color. The deep blue decoration fills the charger. On the border are medallions and scroll designs. The white edges are delicately scalloped, which adds another beautiful dimension to each charger. The chargers have the mark of De Klaauw “The Claw” for Delft made in the last quarter of the 18th century or for LPK for De Porceleyne Lampetkan 1778-1811.

    This excellent set of eleven Mason’s Ironstone plates is decorated in rich rust color with overall black detailing resembling sharkskin. The set dates to circa 1915. The color is fabulous. On the reverse is a transfer printed crown and banner in black with the pattern number ‘C.1753’ in iron-red, and the impressed “2XG” and “ENGLAND,” which Masons began to stamp after 1891.
