Maiolica Water Stoup 

Spanish or Italian, c.1725

Bright, cheerful, charming -- will liven up any wall. The painting is truly naïve but confident. What a lot of putti! Water stoups were hung near the front door so that guests could bless themselves on entering. Today, you can hang it wherever it'll cheer you up the most!

Delftware Charger 

London, c.1760

Polychrome Chinoiserie scene of a figure (dancing??) in a garden all reflected (inaccurately) in a pool. Quite charming, really. Deeper dish form than most chargers. Suspension hook on back. Middle of the range example at bottom of the range price.

Oil Lamp 

English or Dutch, 1575-1625

A remarkable survivor: a two-pan lamp made to hang on a wall or stand on a table. Characterful signs of hand-potting -- not turned on a wheel. The stem slightly off vertical and twisted. A beautiful and rare little thing, bought from an English collection. Old collectors' marks on bottom.
