    Majolica ?

    About January I bought two pieces at a resale shop. I believe it is real Majolica, although no clue as to how old it is.
    These Majolica were bought one for $20 and one for $17. 2 different visits.
    The guys that run the resale shop buy storage units and estate sales predominantly.

    They are both the same except one 10" tall and the other is 9 3/4".
    Both have the number 865 in raised letters on the bottom.
    The business card was inside. Mentions the name of dealer at a well known antique shop in Houston. On the reverse of the card it says Majolica
    But he is out if business, so I could not contact him to ask about this items.


    Looking for more information on these. Haven't found anything on the web to help me.

    Hello, a quick web search found that one that appears almost identical to the your 10" sold for $60 at an auction in January. ENGLISH MAJOLICA PITCHER, LATTICE WORK, H 10",

    No I am sorry, I am not sure and don't have a Majolica reference book - although I wish I did! Can anyone else help out here with dating?

    A lot of majolica was unmarked, particularly the European example made right into the 1930's. Most like this tend to date from the end of the Victorian period.
