Entire Nicholas MossePottery collection must sell to make room for new business.
This beautiful Irish pottery is hand thrown from strong earthenware, then each design element is applied separately with intricately cut sponges. Delicate details give the pottery an unusually light and elegant appeal. This type of spongeware, using colorful repeating patterns and borders, derives from a Victorian tradition which began around 1850. Based on this early technique, Nicholas Mosse pottery displays the unique and happy spontaneity which only truly handmade objects possess.
No two pieces of Nicholas Mosse Pottery are ever exactly alike. This individuality is what makes it treasured around the world. Each piece is hand-thrown & painted by different people, so t are always variations, even within the same pattern series. Look on the bottom of any piece & you'll find a little stamp with two or three initials - that's the person who painted the piece.
