CHARMING SMALL HB TUREEN

6-1/2" high to top of apple finial, 5-3/4" lid diameter, 3-1/2" base diameter. S: HB, ca. 1880; all of the decoration has been finely rendered. There is modest craquelure inside and out, consistent with its age and use, and the base shows glaze skips all around. Our restorer has added invisible strengthening to the base, a proper conservation measure.  So we do not recommend using it, but as a display piece on shelf or table it is a memorable addition to any group of early pieces, demure yet important!

$325, plus shipping.

SHIELD-SHAPED MENU
