This beautiful square serving bowl with fluted corners was made in Mettlach, Germany by the famous firm of Villeroy and Boch. In 1829, the firm of Jean-François Boch et Frères (1809 until 1836) developed a new earthenware; it was bright white and very durable. The Boch family named it "porcelain stoneware" and used copper plates to print their beautiful patterns on the tableware. In 1836, Boch merged with rival Nicholas Villeroy. This Meissen pattern bowl has cobalt floral designs on their pure white earthenware. 

The bowl measures 6 1/2 inches across and 9 inches diagonally from corner to corner. It stands 2 1/2 inches high on a base about 4 inches square and weighs one pound. Its condition is excellent; there are some tiny nicks and rough spots on the rim, one tiny circular chip out of the glaze (pictured) and a few minute chips on the bottom foot rim, but no hairlines, cracks or repairs. It's fresh and clean and vibrant. 

The printed blue mark on the bottom reads "Villeroy and Boch Mettlach Made in Germany Meissen." V & B used this mark from 1874 to 1909. The Meissen pattern is one that's not easily found, but for the collector, it plays well with other blue and white china patterns such as Blue Onion, Poppy and Copenhagen and some from Royal Copenhagen and Bing & Grondahl. It looks lovely as a stand-alone display as well.

    English Silver Plate Art Deco Demitasse Spoons in Lizard Skin Case

    Art Deco Demitasse Spoons in Lizard Skin Case Latham & Owen English Silver Plate

      Overview

      • Vintage item from the 1930s
      • Only 0 available
      • Sold - $55.00
      This set of six fine silver plated demitasse coffee spoons were made by Latham & Owen in Hallamshire in the city of Sheffield, England. Founded in 1921, the firm became quite well known for their fine tableware, as well as their cutlery. The set is boxed in its original genuine lizard skin case, lined with gold silk and black velvet. The marks on the back of the spoons consist of the following raised letters: L & O (Latham & Owen) S (for Sheffield) HALLAM PLATE (for Hallamshire) and A (for quality). 

      The spoons, which are not quite 4 1/2 inches long, appear to be barely used, with faint, fine scratches only visible under magnification. The handles taper to a stepped Deco design, with the letter 'W' monogrammed at the base of each. The outside of the lizard case shows some rubbing in a few places and the brass catch mechanism no longer snaps open and closed; we've cleaned and polished it with specialty leather balm and it looks very handsome. The interior of the case is clean and in excellent condition. The case measures 5 3/4 inches wide, 5 inches top to bottom and about an inch high. 

      This set is lovely for someone whose name matches the monogram letter; but monograms are evidence of a former, favored life and thus perfect for the lover of vintage items and, of course, of demitasse.

        • 4315 Japanese Famille Noir Moth Bowl bottom mark and sticker view-2919 x 2413-jpg.JPG
        4315 Japanese Famille Noir Moth Bowl inside view only 2283 x 2158-jpg.JPG

        This gorgeous mid century Satsuma bowl is made of terra cotta clay, covered completely with enamel and the raised slip decorations called moriage. The central motif on the interior is of twin silk moths that are surrounded by floral and diaper designs, all set on a flat black, famille noire style background. which was popular in the 1920's. The exterior is enameled in creamy off-white with the fine crackle associated with Satsuma. It's decorated with a meander design set on an iron red band at the rim and a vine of leaves and flowers in various colors around the center. The mark on the bottom "MADE IN JAPAN" is stamped in gold; there is also a remnant of a paper sticker that probably read the same {what's legible is "N JAPAN}. The hand painting on this bowl is lovely and there is a generous amount of gilding.

        The bowl measures 7 inches across and 2 1/2 inches tall and weighs just over a pound. The condition is very good, with just a few small flakes off the exterior enamel {photograph #4, left}, minor wear to the bottom of the foot ring and to the gilding on the rim of the bowl, and very small areas of rubbing on the exterior red band. This Japanese bowl from the 1920's will elicit admiring comments wherever it's placed.

        Native Alaskan Art Athabascan Birch Bark Folded Basket

         
        Native Alaskan Art Athabascan Birch Bark Folded Basket

        $250.00

        This beautiful basket was made by the Athabascan people of Alaska in the late 19th/early 20th century. The outer bark was peeled from the birch tree, then steamed and bent. The dark interior of the bark is on the outside of the basket, while the lighter exterior side of the bark is on the inside of the basket. Holes were made in the bark with a bone awl and the pieces were joined with strips of root, probably spruce but possibly willow; the tightly bound rim is finished with root strips, also, combining strength with beauty. 

        4300 Birch Park  Basket - side view-2-3264 x 2038-jpg.JPG


        The maker of this basket artistically etched the designs on the basket's sides and ends. The long sides each have three herb sprigs and there are geometric designs on each of the short ends, centered between the laced folds. Interestingly, although all these patterns appear to be painted on, they were actually created by scraping off the surface of the bark, yielding the light colored layer underneath. The Athabascans, who call themselves "Dena" ("the people"), sometimes sold these baskets to bring in money to the community.

        4300 Birch Park  Basket - side view-1-2997 x 1978-jpg.JPG


        This basket is 10 inches long, 9 inches front to back and stands 4 inches high. There is some peeling of the interior bark and there are burn marks on the bottom. There is also, of course, a general darkening of the bark color, but for an antique basket that was in use such as this one, it is in wonderful condition. Like much utilitarian native objects, it is also very decorative and handsome.

        Rockdale Pottery Lamp 1991 Back View with Mark Only-3264 x 2448-jpg.JPGThis handsome lamp was hand made of salt glazed grey stoneware by the Rockdale Union Stoneware Company in Edgerton, Wisconsin in 1991. The cobalt designs were hand painted; the flower on the back was initialed by the artist with a "W." The lamp weighs nearly 7 pounds; the crock base is 9 1/2 inches tall with a 5 inch diameter bottom. The overall height with the shade is 20 inches to the top of the small round brass finial. The lamp works fine and the cord, plug and bulb socket are all in very good condition. 

        The shade is made of pleated blue fabric over a stiff plastic liner. The harp is attached to the shade, which would necessitate buying a new harp if you want to change the shade, which is probably the original. It's in very good condition on the exterior. It has a few splits in the plastic lining, not at all noticeable from the outside. The crock is in excellent condition; it's marked on the reverse with the impressed oval mark of the pottery, which reads: ROCKDALE UNION STONEWARE EDGERTON, WIS. ALWAYS HANDMADE 1991, all in an oval. Below that is a much smaller oval that has the potter's mark---what looks like a capital letter V with a bar across the top, or perhaps a letter T with two legs. 

        The founder of Rockdale Union Stoneware, Peter Jackson, worked at Rowe Pottery in Cambridge, Wisconsin. RUS was also located in Cambridge from 1984 to 1991 and then in Edgerton from 1991 until it closed in 1997.

        This is a beautiful lamp that works well in casual, relaxed rooms.
