Victorian Minton Majolica Centrepiece Sweetmeat Nut Server


Code: FA0359


W: 21.5cm (8.5")H: 32cm (12.6")D: 21.5cm (8.5")

Stunning Minton majolica centrepiece for sweetmeats or nuts. A three compartment bowl mounted by 2 putti fighting over a jar of honey and held aloft on the shoulders of 3 winged mermaids sitting on a finely detailed scroll footed base. Lovely classic colours of blue, gold and green with the characteristic blue and brown marbling to the underside of the bowl, and a turquoise wash to the underneath. 

Marks to the base include the date cypher for 1859.

It measures 32cm (12") high and 21.5cm (8 1/2") wide. 

Condition is excellent with no damage or restoration. There are a few small firing tears to the more complex parts of the clay which I mention for completeness.
