Hi All, I posted this gorgeous Jasperware piece to get a little feedback from the group. I think it is German, and I think it's quite old, but I am not at all certain. Any thoughts? I have a few more items I will put up too. Thanks for any help!

Interesting, the plate has the Sevres code "S 46" for 1846, and if you search Google for "Chateau Des Tuileries" you can find similar pieces with some marks displayed in the general manner of yours.

Another something I noticed is the "France" mark, meaning (probably) the plate was intended for the Export market.

Just a general thought - be careful when someone offers you Sevres pieces, as there were thousands of imitations of their patterns made in the 19th century, most in Italy / England, and some in Spain. Ditto on Paris Porcelain, especially Jacob Petit-style items and those little vases with Swan-neck handles.

Marks are an almost required, but not a guarantee of Sevres. Yours is beautiful, can you read the artist's signature on the front with a magnifying glass?

This is an old Sevres plate that I purchased in a box lot of old plates, it's one of two. I don't know much about it, so I thought I'd ask the group? Age? Worth? There is damage on both of them though, this one has two rim nicks, the other one has two larger rim chips. I'm sure this effects the value, just thought they are so pretty!

Plate 4 (Waterlillies) is actually a German piece by Zell. Zell has a few very nice examples like this one. Thank you very much for the link, those Clement-Massier's pieces are fantastic! Some of those glazes are so well done you could mistake them for the old irridescent art glass! Love them! The first few plates show an american art pottery piece that I think is Fulper, I posted it some time ago but we never came up with any certainty on the maker. Still an interesting piece I guess.

If anyone would like to view Vicki's photos, I've also embedded them on the group page above. Love the plate in Image 4.

Vicki, you should definitely see the Jason Jacques gallery if you haven't already. Link below:

I am very particular in what I collect from Victorian Majolica. My favorites are: Minton and George Jones (of course) but these have become terribly expensive. Next in line are the Wedgwood, Samuel Leer, Royal Worcester and a few other English makers, The French makers I like best are St. Clement, Frie Onnaing and Sarreguemines. I also like the Austrian and Continental Art Nouveau pieces. The only American maker I collect is the Etruscan Griffin, Smith and Hill of Phoenix PA. I also lean more toward plates, Pitchers and small cream and sugar and other serving pieces. I don't go for the figurines too much. I have quite a few pieces on my page if anyone would like to take a look. I just love the stuff!

Wonderful collection Glenn, so much texture and depth to the glazes on that era's pottery. I must admit I've got one of the little Spaniel figurines on the bookshelf at my office, they're classic.

Any particular companies or styles that you two collect? I know so little about Majolica from that era!

Hi Walter, I'm in like flynn! Love the old English pottery - I am a Victorian Majolica Collector! Thanks for starting this group, it looks wonderful!
