Description

It's days of cigarette holding are long gone but it packs a punch of charm! Awesome patina and crackling to finish of this pottery. Looks Majolica but not sure. Have seen other pieces in this pattern and color scheme stated as majolica. Conservatively dating this to the 1940s though I have seen similar patterns from the Japanese Company Maruhon dated to the 1920s. Measures about 3 3/4" high by 3.5" wide at widest point (base) by 2 1/8" thick at base. On the bottom is a lovely seahorse motif with 2 seahorses facing opposite directions and there is a clam shell in the middle. The patina that has developed is awesome with creamy muted tones of cream, rusty orange, lime green with yellow tint, forest green, navy and rose. Marked "Maruhon Ware Made in Japan" with the classic K circle insignia. (See photo 4.) It has a repair at the bottom (see photo 4) and also a small 1/8" chip on inside of top lip. Another 3/4" by 1/8" of thin chipping off side top rim. Some tiny chips off bottom edge. You can display one side where these don't really show as seen in first 2 photos but not really an issue as it is a solid repair and chippiness doesn't take away from beauty. Nice old beach nautical vibe! It was repaired way before I acquired it antiquing in the 1980s.
Use to hold rings/jewelry by the sink, as a small vase for tiny flowers. Beautiful earthy tones & character. Will be well padded to not only prevent crushing but also jarring.
Shipping is for mainland U.S. Priority and includes tracking & insurance. Convo with zip for Alaska, Hawaii, or for shipping OUTSIDE U.S. I always do my best to give shipping discounts for multiple purchases if the items can be safely mailed together. I can not reflect the shipping discounts on my chart because I have such a variety of items in my shop. Convo for quote for multiple purchases and I can change the shipping for you or you can check out and I can refund thru Paypal if I am able to save you any.
