  • The Collection of Mario Buatta Miles Mason Porcelain Cup and Saucer

  • Pair of French Mid-19th Century Flower Decorated Creamware Dishes

    $470.00

    This pair of French creamware dishes shows sprigs of beautiful flowers. The images are crisp. We see two shades of purple, green, and yellow. The color combination is perfect. Made by the Creil-Montereau factory in the mid-19th century, circa 1860, the pattern was inspired by the hand-painted flowers on 18th-century French and English porcelain. The dishes are made of pearled creamware, pottery perfected by an Englishman, Josiah Wedgwood, in the 1780s. Under the artistic and technical direction of native English potters, Creil-Montereau introduced France to transfer printing on creamware and raised it to a high state of perfection during its peak years in the 19th century. The pottery factory of Creil (Oise) was founded in 1797. In 1840 the Creil factory merged with the Montereau factory (Seine et Marne). The company became “Creil et Montereau Faïenceries” under the name Lebeuf, Milliet & Co. (LM & Co.), and continued until 1876.

    Dimensions: 8″ in diameter x 1.5″ deep.

    Condition: Excellent with the very, very slightest rubbing to the colors.
