Early 19th Century Creil French Mochaware Coffee Pot$1,900.00
A Creil mochaware peach-colored coffee pot made circa 1810.
This elegant coffee pot features a dark brown mocha design on a light peach body. Mochaware was developed in Staffordshire in the late 18th century, but spread to continental Europe through the Middle-Eastern moss agate trade. Moss agate stones, which sport a similar tree-like design, were exported to the West through the port of al Makha, translated in English to “Mocha.” While moss agates were used as semiprecious stones in jewelry and objets de vertu for the upper classes, their dendrite design inspired potters such as Creil to create mochawares for more quotidian usage.
Dimensions: 10 in. H x 6 1/4 at widest point (25.4 cm H x 15.9 cm W)
Condition: Excellent visual condition, with invisible professional restoration to cover and spout. Some minor staining to clay body under the glaze on the foot.

Small Blue and White Tea Cup and Saucer$285.00
From the Collection of Mario Buatta
A blue and white English pottery teacup and saucer made in the Regency period circa 1825. We see a delicate overall printed pattern showing small trees. This cup was made for a tea purist. It is just large enough for a few sips of hot tea. If it were bigger, by the time one got to the last sips, the tea would have cooled a bit.
Mario was our very best client for four decades. Blue and white was one of his passions. He loved intense blue.
Dimensions: diameter of saucer 4.5″, diameter of cup 2.75″ x height 2.35″
