Hi all,
Nice squat lidded dish, approx 6" by 2"
From the stamp on the back this dates to between 1908-1925.
It looks like it could be more creamware than majolica (thanks Vetraio:)

    Kinda resembles Peyote! Love It!

    Thanks Tom, could be, i don't know what Peyote looks like. I thought a water lilly but the leaves look wrong, maybe its just a made up flower. I like its funny squat shape.

    Tom, you haven't been at the peyote have you? ;)
    Sorry i don't see the resemblance.
    Mind you it doesn't look much like a water lilly either. Lol.
    You don't know if this would be classed as majolica do you?
    The descriptions I've read of it are a bit vague, if the inside was pink or puce colour I'd say it could be but I'm not sure.

    HAHAHA, LoL...many many years ago, but these days it's vast quantities of Scotch.
    It's a beautiful piece, I wouldn't mind if it was to resemble peyote. But I'm pretty sure you named it correctly. =)
    I am doing a search though! =)

    I did a little image search & wondered if it might be a primrose, or maybe tea, maybe its for keeping loose tea in, but it doesn't look too much like those either.

    It definitely is of the Majolica style, all Google pics for Majolica-style pottery has this same "lettuce leafed" design. =)

    Hi Tom,
    They don't look like lettuce leaves on this but i think you're right. Because there's no sickly puce colours i usually associate with majolica, & not owning, any i wasn't sure.
    Thanks:)

    I think it is more "creamware" than tin glazed majolica.
  10. Vintagefran Vintagefran, 4 months ago
    Ahh you maybe right V. I'll have to look into it...:)

    Cream and green were a thing in English ceramics. I think this is really nice. The mark is twentieth century. Have not seen another. Nice!

    Thanks V. It does look like creamware:)
    I love it, its a lovely squat shape with a little outward bend at the bottom to stand on. Do you think it could've been used for tea?
