Authentic ANTIQUE Majolica c1880, this stunning LARGE English Sardine box has a shell & seaweed motif. I just love this piece. Incredible crisp molding and details. Obviously made by one of the major English Pottery Companies. But by who? I have not seen a reference to the maker in all the years I've been dealing in Majolica. If a viewer can enlighten me it would be appreciated. Not only is the molding superb but so is the supple color graduation of the shells making them appear highly 3-dimensional. The green seaweed handle is an elegant, understated touch as are the darker algae clusters pictured on the corners of the lid. The exterior glaze is pristine & ultra shiny where as the turquoise lid & box underglaze shows "mini crater" glaze bubbles. Quite interesting actually. There is a 1/2" chip to the rim that the box sits on. In other words, it does not show. A quality piece!.....PLEASE enlarge my photos for a better look....To view MORE FINE MAJOLICA I have listed, just click on the "VIEW THIS DEALER'S OTHER ITEMS" button on the left, then type MAJOLICA into the search box......Insured & tracked shipping to addresses in North America will be $28 approx.
