Description


An early 19th century Coalport moulded jug painted with springs of flowers. The moulded decoration is also of floral sprays and the handle is in the form of a branch. There are no makers marks, but it is a well known design, and there are also collectors labels to the underside. This is quite a large example and would probably have been used as a water or wash jug. The body is porcelain and has a yellow tint to the translucency.


Condition


There has been professional restoration to the spout and the handle and both handle joins to the body. This is now more visible as it has aged over time, but is still pretty good. Minor wear. Minor production flaws as typical for this period.

Description


A late 19th century Coalport turquoise jewelled enamel dish and stand. Both are of fluted form and have a pink ground. The exterior of the bowl and outer portion of the stand are extensively jewelled with raise turquoise enamel in the same form as more commonly used on their vases. There are also small flowerheads with raised white enamel petals. This is the first example of it's type I have seen, and I also can't find it referenced in the usual sources, so I suspect it must had been made in very small numbers. Both pieces have the Coalport green mark to the underside. Very interesting examples for the Coalport collector.


Condition


The bowl has some damage to the jewels on one panel shown in image 3 and one white petal is missing from a flowerhead. The inside base of the bowl has some stained crazing and there is the usual fine crazing associated with Coalport of this period. It has a dull ring when tapped, probably from the Read more

Description


A silver plated repousse musical lidded pot. It has repeating scenes of characters, around the body they are perhaps in a tavern. To the underside of the lid it has a clockwork musical movement encased in plastic. The movement is activated by pulling the little brass pin in the lid upwards, it's quite a short repeat and runs down quickly. The lid is marked EPNS, but there are no makers marks. Date wise it is probably mid 20th century. A fun item probably intended for the dressing table or perhaps even as a novelty bonbon box.


Condition


Generally good with minor wear, movement is a fairly basic affair.

Description


An early Victorian sweetmeat glass with clear stem and foot, an emerald green bowl and a white rim. This unusual but very attractive piece dates around 1850 and certainly retains some of the earlier Georgian feel. It is made in good quality lead glass and would have been an expensive item in it's time. The white rim is a nice touch and something very seldom seen, it really helps define the bowl form. It would have been used for sweetmeats and bonbons as it is too ungainly to use as a drinking vessel. The pontil has been left rough snapped.

Condition


Plenty of wear to the underside of the foot. Also has wear to the body with scratches and scuffs in keeping with a used period item.

Description


An Art Deco period vaseline glass candlestick/comport base by Walther & Sohne of Germany. This classic of early 20th century glass depicts the Three Graces around a plinth base. These pieces were originally comport bases but they are now generally found (and more appealing) as candlesticks. This example retains the metal protector inside the sconce so could be used as either (if you have the top). It is made from vaseline glass which reacts and glows under UV light (this example glows green). No makers marks (which is normal) but a well known catalogued design.

Condition


Generally good with minor wear. There is an impact chip near to the upper arm of one of the Graces, this is visible in image one between the breast of one and the upper arm of the figure on the right as viewed. There are some flow lines in glass which look a bit like (but are not) cracks, these form where the glass meets while being injected into the mould. Inside the sconce there is a rough section (from the moulding process).

Description


A late 19th or early 20th century amethyst colour glass ice bucket. It has two applied lug handles and is of tapered bucket shape. The pontil has been ground out and it is a hand made example. It has a nice purple tone and is of course fine to use as a vase as well as for the intended purpose.

Condition


Minor wear and some scratches around the base. Pontil not very elegantly ground out, but this is from production.
