N11/06

I have a pair of these extremely rare pieces so few having been issued. Again from the innovative Lustre Pottery range,  a novelty "head"  egg cup on a very modernist shaped underplate.  The cup measures 3.25" high & the underplate 4.25" square and the head appears "emporer like"! .   There is a very tiny, minor fleabite on the edge of the underplate & a slight factory glaze colour mark on the cup on one set. Both the printed Carlton Ware and Lustre Pottery backstamps are on the bases of the cups and plates. This is a striking "minimalist" looking piece, a very unusual design and, as far as I am aware, very rare.  It is not even featured in the various Carlton books and even the Lustre Pottery design books.

PRICE 45 (per set) (U.S. $90) 90 PAIR

 

Item Ref

N15/06

Another rare Carlton Ware "Lustre Pottery" novelty egg cup, called "The Boss", complete with its matching stand. The cup was modelled by Roger Michell for Carlton Ware in 1976 and is marked with bother Lustre Pottery and Carlton Ware's backstamps (in gold). The actual egg cup measures 3.5" by 3.75" and the stand 4.75" diameter.  The features and tie are printed in brown but the boss has blue eyes!  Condition is excellent with slight crazing.

PRICE 40 (U.S. $70)

 

Antiques for the 21st century!

Villeroy & Boch's very unusual & collectable "Animal Park" collection was created by the Viennese artist and multiple award winner Rosemarie Benedikt.  This collection,  only ran for a short period,  displays remarkable warmth and charm. Some are boisterous, others are comical, but all radiate their own unique energy. The collection was introduced in 1995 and only ran until 2000 when it was discontinued and because of the short production anything from this range has become highly collectible, proving that good quality, well designed items endure and increase in value -
