    This is a beautiful Staffordshire embossed cutwork bowl in the "Rosslyn" pattern. It's hand painted with green and golden leaves and bunches of red grapes on pure white earthenware. Made by the Falcon Pottery, founded by Thomas Lawrence in 1885, this dish dates from the 1950's to 1964, when the Falcon pottery ceased to exist due to a merger. The printed mark on the back was used during that time period; it consists of Rosslyn and Falcon Ware in script, along with MADE IN ENGLAND and HAND PAINTED WARE. The foot is surrounded by a wash of golden color and surmounted by a splash of the same green used on the front.

    This bowl measures 10 1/2 inches across and stands 2 inches high. It weighs almost 1 3/4 pounds and is in absolutely pristine condition. This bowl is a wonderful shelf sitter or centerpiece. very colorful and eye catching.

    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.
