Gin-For's Odditiques Logo TwoDescription:   This antique majolica figural centerpiece is large and lovely.  It features a woman in "Classical" dress upon the rocks and holding a shell.  It's clearly playing with mythological themes, but I don't recall any specific story or character that would fit. 

Design and color are strong, great sense of line, but I've had no luck with an attribution.  It's probably continental with Austria, Belgium, Germany, and France the leading country candidates, which clearly covers many companies and a significant part of Europe, so it isn't really helpful.

(Bianca was helping with showing perspective, but as usual, cats and batteries not included.



Dimensions
:  Height about 9" with a length of about 11 1/2".


Condition:
exceptional.  There's a small glaze rub on the knee (pictured), and still a few traces of gold paint from where someone evidently painted the whole thing at some point.  For majolica, that's exceptional.  Of course, all our sales are fully guaranteed.


Price:
 $150 plus shipping and insurance.



Shipping:
  will vary based on location. Contact us for a quote.
International shipping rates by request.

We try to ship in one or two days after payment arrives, and we're generous with the bubblewrap and styrofoam peanuts.

Remember that all proceeds go to support good causes: my spouse, our cats our creditors, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.
