Art Nouveau Pate Sur Pate Vase c.1880
Beautiful miniature sized continental, (in all probability French) pate-sur-pate vase.

Decorated on a dark green ground with a naked maiden rising up from within a wave and encircled with a typically Art Nouveau gilded leaf design.

Pate-sur-pate (actually paste on paste) is achieved by the application of thin layers of white slip onto the porcelain background body of the vase until the desired design is achieved. It is a delicate and expensive process, perfected in France by Marc-Louis Solon at Sevres and that was used by by him when he moved to England to work at Minton. Also used by other prominent English porcelain manufacturers in the 19th Century. Quality pieces are considered rare and bring a premium price when available.

In excellent condition, general age related crazing. Minor wear to the rim gilt. There have been no repairs. This piece has been very well looked after. The colours are stunning.

Fully marked to the base with a white VI and an impressed VI over D6 and the number 3054.

Measures approx:

9cm tall. 3 1/2".

A lovely vase, very rare piece also very decorative indeed.

Enamelled with lilies, peonies and song birds on a gold speckled chestnut brown ground. With intricately patterned top and bottom borders. The inside and base are tourquoise and the top and bottom rims have brass mounts.

Rare K.P.M. Berlin Lithophane c.1836-7
A rare 19th century K.P.M. lithophane made from biscuit porcelain dating to 1836-7.

Of excellent quality, looking almost 3D when lit from behind.

Inside a coloured etched glass frame, althought the bottom ruby panel has been broken and re-glued. The lithophane is also loosly fitting, I suspect it would be easy to remedy by altering the lead fixing mounts.

The lithophane itself is in very good condition, with no cracks or repairs.

Impressed with the sceptre over K.P.M., the run number 183 and letter B to the back lower right.

Measures approx:

Lithophane: 12.5cm x 14.5cm. 5" x 5 3/4"

Frame: 18.5cm x 20.5cm. 7 1/4" x 8"

Rare and very collectable piece.

Bloor Derby Pair Shell Shaped Dishes c.1820
Absolutely stunning. Antique, Bloor Derby shell shaped dishes, hand painted with sprays of flowers, dating to c.1820.

The centre sprays with roses, forget-me-nots and foliage. The sides are deep with a cobalt blue gilt scrolled borders. The handles are pierced.

These pieces would have been part of a dessert service, originally produced at the Nottingham Road factory in Derby which existed from 1750-1848.

The red printed gothic style mark to the pack of these pieces was only used from around 1820 - 48, when the factory closed. So the piece can be very clearly dated to this period in time.

The pieces are in wonderful condition.

No real wear to the gild worth mentioning. No cracks or repairs. A little discolouration as you can see from the photos, and very fine crazing very common to pieces of this time. But one cannot expect perfection at nearly 200 years of age!

This really is a wonderful set, as I have tried to show in the photos.

Measures approx:

9 1/2" wide.

A rare, and very special, collectors duo. A very sound investment for the future.

I can email more photos if required, please ask.

Antique Framed Road Map by John Ogilby
The Road Map of London to Barstaple in Devon by John Ogilby(1600-1675)

John Ogilby, a colourful character who led a turbulent life. Only took to map-making in later life. He was made Geographic Printer and Cosmologist to the King by Charles II.

The 'Britannia' was the first national road-atlas of any country in Western Europe. It was composed of maps of seventy-three major roads and cross-roads, presented in a continuous strip-form. For the first time in England, an atlas was prepared on a uniform scale, at one inch to a mile, based on the statute mile of 1,760 yards to the mile. Ogilby claimed that 26,600 miles of roads were surveyed in the course of preparing the atlas, but only about 7,500 were actually depicted in print.

The atlas was composed of a hundred sheets of roads, with each covering a distance of about 70 miles. Longer roads, such as London to Lands End, were depicted on a series of sheets. On each map, the road is depicted in a series of parallel strips. The surveyors noted whether the roads were enclosed by walls or hedges, or open, local landmarks, inns, bridges (with a note on the material of construction), fords, and sometimes even the cultivation being practised in the country on either side of the road. Hills were drawn to show the direction of their incline, and relative steepness.



The 'Britannia', issued in 1675, is a landmark in the mapping of England and Wales. After its publication, no map in England could be published without incorporating his information. Four editions were printed the last being in 1698.



A genuine uncoloured road map, dating to 1698.

In excellent condition. No tears or damage.

In it's old frame from 1972, could perhaps do with re-framing though..


Measures approx:

Road Map only: 18" x 13". 46cm x 33cm.

Including Frame: 21 1/2" x 17 1/2". 55cm x 45cm.


A lovely piece of cartographical history for any collector.
