At the same time, the plum blossom symbolizes integrity, persistence, and the endurance of hardship, and chrysanthemums symbolize happiness, vitality, and longevity.

Wedgwood Drabware Sugar Bowl and Stand England Circa 1825$485.00
Wedgwood made this drabware sugar bowl and stand in Staffordshire, England, in the first quarter of the 19th century, circa 1825. The design is simple and elegant, and the decoration is minimal, with only a bit of gilt trim accentuating the shape and highlighting the gilded finial. The rich color of the drabware stems from the fact that it is created using dark clay rather than white clay, which then gets glazed. This clear glaze over dark clay produces drabware’s naturally rich, saturated color.
Circular, short, and wide, the sugar bowl is very stable and large enough for plenty of sugar.
Dimensions: 6.25″ across the handles x 4.25″ tall

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.

Chelsea Red Anchor Porcelain Dish Mid-18th Century England 1752-1756$1,140.00
The wares of the Chelsea red anchor period (1752-1758), when this dish was made, are generally thought to be the finest work produced by the factory.*
The charm of this Chelsea soft paste porcelain dish lies in the quality of the soft paste porcelain itself, the warm white glaze, and the soft colors of the fabulous hand-painted flowers and insects. The flowers and insects are painted in exquisite soft colors, which seem to sink into the soft paste porcelain.
The painting is at the highest level of artistry. In the center, we see a loose bouquet of scattered flower sprigs, the largest sprig with a gorgeous purple rose, and a hairy caterpillar nearby. The border has crisp flowerhead and lattice molding reserving eight small panels painted with beautiful flowers and insects, one showing a butterfly and one a butterfly next to a ladybug. Along the rim, the dish has a brown line traditional to Chelsea.
Begun in 1743, the Chelsea porcelain factory was England’s first important porcelain manufacturer. The factory made soft paste porcelain which is different than “true” hard paste porcelain and does not require the high firing temperatures or the unique mineral ingredients needed for “true” hard paste porcelain. Soft paste originated in the attempts by European potters to replicate hard paste Chinese porcelain.
A dish decorated similar to ours and marked with the Chelsea red anchor is in the British Museum, accession number 1940,1101.70.
Dimensions: 9.5″ wide (24cm)

Made in England in the early 19th century, circa 1820, the cobalt blue decoration was applied by hand using a stencil. Because the colors were applied by hand, each design is slightly different, especially in the intensity of the blue.
Dimensions: 5″ tall x 4.65″ in diameter

18th Century French Soft Paste Porcelain Mennecy Blush Pot Hand-Painted$1,600.00
We are pleased to offer this beautiful Mennecy blush pot ‘Pot à Fard’ made circa 1750.
It is decorated with sprays of flowers, the finial shaped as a single purple rose with green leaves.
The flowers are hand-painted in rich enamel colors, among them the distinctive Mennecy purple-rose hue, shown in figure #1, especially on the rose form finial. Another color associated with Mennecy is the most beautiful green found on the raised leaves of the rose finial and on the leaves surrounding the flowers.
This pot is particularly appealing because the painting of the flowers is so robust. Envisioning it in a woman’s toilette seems the epitome of femininity and Romanticism. In the 18th century, it would have been found on the vanity of an aristocratic lady, where it was primarily used to hold creams and lotions for the face.
The Mennecy Porcelain Manufactory was one of the first French porcelain factories. From 1735 until 1773, the factory produced Fine quality soft-paste porcelain wares. French soft-paste porcelains date to the early attempts by European potters to replicate Chinese porcelain by using mixtures of clay and glass frit. Like our pot, the body of the early Mennecy soft-paste wares has a creamy tone.
There was no gilding at Mennecy. Instead, like our pot, the rims were painted in tones of pink and purple.
The Mennecy, factory under the protection of the Duc de Villeroy, marked many of its porcelains with an incised “DV” on the underside.
Our pot is marked with an incised “DV”; however, an image of the “DV” mark does not have enough resolution to post here.
Provenance: Estate of John F. Ball, Greenwich, CT.
Dimensions: 3.75″ tall x 3″ diameter
