American and European Art Pottery

from The Drawing Room Antiques

# 5855. A Grand Tour Garden Seat. From the workshop of Raffaele Vaccarella in Naples Italy. Late 19th century. The base is marbelized; four lion heads and paws with a granite glaze support the 'pillow' cushion; a hand painted view of cherubs and a goat are depicted on the cushion. Size: 14" across and 18" tall. Condition: several chips and surface losses; cracks to the cushion surface. This is a rare example of Italian Art Pottery. We had a matched pair several years ago that were sold to a London Antiques dealer. There is a pair of similar garden seats in The Preservation Society house museum, Chateau Sur Mer, on Bellevue Avenue in Newport, RI. Price: $7,500.00.
