Description


An antique Royal Worcester plate hand painted by John Stinton during the Edwardian period (1902). John Stinton was well known for painting highland cattle scenes and also the less common castle scenics as in this plate here. The plate features a central image of Doune Castle which is in Perthshire, Scotland. The castle still looks pretty much the same today as when it was painted by John Stinton over 110 years ago.

The plate also features outer vignettes of floral sprigs in gilt cartouches. These are nicely painted too as can be seen in the close ups but are not initialed or signed. The outer margin is in cobalt blue and the rim is gilded. It is a superb example and very scarce.

To the underside is the Worcester mark in puce with the date code for 1902. It is also signed to the face by John Stinton.

Condition


Remarkably good condition, no damage or restoration. Very little wear, overall Read more

Description


A fine Wedgwood limited edition plaque in black basalt. The plaque depicts 'The Frightened Horse', and is based on a painting by George Stubbs completed around 1765 and which hangs in the Yale Centre for British Art. Interestingly the design is produced mirrored on the horizontal axis -the Stubbs original has the horse on the right side.

The plaque is produced in Wedgwood's famous black basalt ceramic and looks very effective as you can see in the images. The plaque has superb detailing and is of a very high standard as you would expect from the limited edition ranges. This plaque was limited to a very low number of just 250 of which this is 137 and it was released in 1973.

The plaque is set in an antique style frame with flock mount as typical of Wedgwood for this period. There is a name plaque set to the front of the frame, and the Wedgwood mark is impressed to the overhand of a rock. To the reverse is the standard Wedgwood impressed marks and gold printed details. No box or paperwork present

Description


A pair of good quality and attractive mid 19th Century early Victorian cut glass covered jars. These examples would probably be large sweetmeats at their size and are ideal for sweets, nuts or just for display. The bodies are heavily cut with strawberry diamonds and the bases are similarly cut. They come with matching lids with V cuts to the tops and facet cutting around the shoulders.

They are produced in good quality lead glass and are in the Anglo Irish style. They catch the light particularly well and are good showy pieces for the buffet or dinner table.

Condition


The bodies have minor nicks and chips as you would expect for the period. One jar has a larger flake chip to the foot corner which is shown in close up for you and is approx 15mm across. One lid also has a chip to the knop ridge approx 20mm across and again shown in the images for you. The other lid has a flat chip to the knop sides approx 15mm across. Minor clouding Read more

A superb early 19th Century Derby twin handled porcelain basket. It dates to the late Georgian period around 1820. This lovely example has a large central reserve hand painted with birds. The the finely painted birds are almost certainly by Richard Dodson who was an expert in this area and they are very attractively done as you can see in the images.

The body of the basket features extensive and elaborate gilt work over a white ground. It is also gilded to the underside. There are moulded lion head masks to the corners of the basket. The Derby crossed baton mark in red is featured to the underside.

A very showy piece which would make a great feature item.


Condition


One corner has some professional restoration, this has been done very well and is invisible for all practical purposes. This corner is shown in close Read more

Description


A pair of late 19th or very early 20th century miniature hunting jugs. They were made by Doulton in their Lambeth factory and date around 1900. The jugs are very similar to the full sized examples produced by Doulton right down to the style of the applique work. They are glazed in the traditional two tone brown.

To the underside of each is the Doulton mark impressed into the bases.

Condition


Both have slight chips the rims near the handles. Otherwise fine with very slight production flaws typical for this type of item. The lower part of one jug is slightly darker than the other, and these are a matched pairing.

Description


An early 20th century Royal Doulton stoneware jug.  It dates around 1905-10 and you can see the Art Nouveau influence in the design.  The body is finished in a mottled green glaze which is very effective.  The design is impressed into the body and given a contrasting glaze.  The rim is of tricorn form and the applied handle is finished in a darker glaze.

To the underside are the Doulton impressed marks and these are shown in the images for you.

Condition


Very good order with no damage, minor wear only. A bit of glaze roughness to the rim and the footrim from production. An interesting and unusual design for a miniature.

Description


A pair of late 18th or early 19th century dram glasses dating around 1800. These would have been used for strong drinks and were probably domestic rather than tavern glasses.

The glasses were made in two parts with the stem and bowl drawn together. The feet are conical and the pontils are rough snapped. They are produced in English lead glass. The bowls are etched with the classic egg & dart design that was popular around this period and is sometimes seen on facet stemmed glasses of this time.

A nice looking pair of small glasses which would suit liqueurs and similar strong drinks, or of course use just for display.

Condition


One glass has a small chip to the footrim and this is shown in close up for you. The other glass has a mineral inclusion to the top side of the foot. Otherwise both glasses have minor wear and are good for the period.
