  • Blue and White Pearled Creamware Sugar Box or Sucrier Made England Circa 1820

    $330.00

    This lovely blue and white pearlware pottery sugar box is decorated with three beautiful patterns of leaves and berries. The body, the top edge around the cover, and the cover each have a similar but slightly different pattern. The edge of the sugar box has a precise machine-turned ridge which adds an exciting detail to the form. 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

    Condition: Excellent

    We have a similar sugar box available.

  • Pair Antique Spode Oval Shaped Dishes Decorated with Waterlilies England C-1825

    $740.00

    The most exceptional aspect of this pair of dishes is the fabulous gilding lavished over the cobalt borders. As a less prominent feature, the gilding carries throughout the decoration.

The gilt and exquisite colors jump from the clean white ground of the pearled creamware.

  • Three First Period Worcester Brocade Pattern Dishes England circa 1775

    $3,480.00

    Known as the “Brocade” pattern, the design on these exquisite eighteenth-century dishes is complicated yet delicate. The inspiration for this pattern comes from seventeenth-century Japanese patterns. We see dragons, flowering prunus, and bolts of fabric with mons. The center has a sizeable gilt chrysanthemum flower head, and the border has a golden rim line with a lobed edge.
    Made by Worcester during the “First Period” when the factory was under the supervision of Dr. Wall circa 1770.
    The reverse of each dish with the Worcester gold crescent mark.
    Several years ago, we had in the shop a single dish in this model with the collection label for the Iman Smallwood Collection.
    Also see: Simon Spero and John Sandon in Worcester Porcelain, 1751-1790, The Zorensky Collection image #273 pg. 234 for an example of this pattern in a shell-shaped dish.

  • 18th Century French Soft Paste Porcelain Mennecy Blush Pot Hand-Painted

    $2,100.00

    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.

  • Early 19th Century Orange English Mochaware Waste Bowl

    $1,900.00

    An English mochaware waste bowl in the London shape with cable or “earthworm” decoration, dating to circa 1820.

    Developed in Staffordshire in the late 18th century, dipped wares utilized colored liquid clay slips to create surprisingly modern abstract and geometric motifs. This small waste bowl features a cable design with marbled colors of dark brown, blue, and white slip on an orange ground. The bowl’s rim has a rouletted band of chevrons lightly glazed in green. The bright color palette of this bowl dates it to an earlier period of production, circa 1820. Later dipped wares have much more subdued colors.

    Condition: The bowl is in very good condition, with two tiny chips to the rim each measuring approximately 0.2 cm in length. The underside of the base has some glaze flaking. There is a hairline circular crack in the well of the bowl.

    Dimensions: 4 5/8 in. diameter x 2 1/2 in. height (11.8 cm diameter x 6.6 cm height).

  • Chinese Porcelain Plate Hand-Painted with Mandarin Ducks, Circa 1860

    $1,230.00

    This beautiful mid 19th-century Chinese plate was hand-painted in the Famille Rose style in the  Qing dynasty, circa 1860. The plate depicts two Mandarin ducks swimming on a lotus pond. They look at each other and seem to smile. This is a happy plate with a symbolic message. Mandarin ducks are thought to mate for life. Therefore, in Chinese lore, they represent a happy marriage. In the Qianlong period, this would have been a perfect wedding gift! The plate is finely painted in exquisite polychrome enamels. We see pink shading into lavender pink and blue shading into light blue and turquoise. Highlights of grey, yellow, green, and light brown with gilt are framed by waveforms in bright white. On the border, we see the eight Chinese immortals, some riding wonderful mythical beasts. On the reverse of the plate are three traditional iron-red flower sprays.

  • Worcester Armorial Cake Plate Hand-Painted w Crest & Motto “Steadfast in Honour”

    Provenance:
    In the center of the plate is the coat of arms of the Family of Colegrave. Its motto: Fidei Constans [Steadfast in Honour]

William became the eventual heir to his uncle, John Manby.
    He then assumed the surname and arms of Colegrave by Royal Licence dated 16th February 1819.
