Item Name Wood Carving of a Black Woman
Price $295.00
Description
This is an extremely powerful and moving wood carving of a slave woman. The carver, probably another slave, managed to convey an extraordinary amount of humanity and detail in this 7 inch tall bust. Her kerchief is atop her curly hair and tied in a knot at the back of her head. Her eyes are carved out and have a soulful stare. The base is approximately 3 ½ inches by 3 inches and is curved in front to truly represent a bust. 

As a side note, but certainly not proof of provenance, we purchased this wonderful piece in St. Augustine, Florida, several decades ago and have cherished it ever since.

Coalport is a famous china manufactory which began in 1796 and by 1800 was Britain’s largest. These plates date from 1891 to c. 1920.

Coalport called this china pattern “Kings Ware.”

These 9 inch antique plates are a beautiful pale cream color. Their rims are heavily embossed with flowers and leaves and the center of each is decorated with black and white transfer prints that are hand colored in polychrome. Each shows a character from the works of Charles Dickens.

Description
This lovely pitcher is hand-painted in a floral motif, with leaves, flowers and buds. There are touches of gilding in many spots. The gilding is worn on the handle and to a lesser degree in some other areas. There are no chips, cracks, flea bites or any other condition issues.
We’ve owned this pitcher for 30 years and have never been able to decipher the mark on the bottom. It is painted in gold, and since it has never turned up in all of the marks books we’ve consulted, we think it may be the initials of the artist who decorated it.

The woman is seated with her arms encircling her knees; her hair is parted in the center with two long braids down her back. The man is hunched forward with his arms crossed on his lap and is wearing a simple wrapped head covering.
