We offer a selection of fine American Art Pottery From the firm of

D.F. Haynes and Company, Baltimore (1883-85).

# 5388. A very rare antique American Aesthetic movement Severn Ware Ghooleh art pottery bottle from David Frances Haynes; the bottle is bulbous at the base with a slender cylindrical neck; it was hand thrown and lathe turned; it has an applied gilt trim strip with a repeated gilt arabesque pattern, applied beads circle the base of the neck, also gild and an applied grid pattern with bead bands at it edges, gilded overall; on the upper half of the globe form one side has applied gilt leaves, flowers and buds; on the reverse there is a gorgeous gilt butterfly. Materials: clays, gilt and vitreous glazes/paints. Dominant colors: olive grey-green / gold (the greyish color is not a glaze, it is the cured color of the soils used) Date made: c. 1881 - 1885. Made in Baltimore, Maryland . Designer: David Frances Haynes at Chesapeake Pottery Co. Mr. Haynes was from New Hampshire and worked in a foundry in Baltimore; he was sent south to establish a factory, and in the process became fascinated with qualities and characteristics of clays for molds. He returned to Baltimore and started his new enterprise, taking on partners after 1887. Mr. Haynes was committed to the "art for art's sake" thesis of the Aesthetic Movement, so he did not try to create exquisitely rare and beautiful pieces for the rich in the manner of Tiffany, but rather wanted useful and beautiful items made affordable by the masses. Size: 11.75" tall. Condition: surface marks consistent with use and age. No cracks or repairs. Price: $2,500.00

# 5183. An American Aesthetic Era pottery pitcher. Attributed to D.F. Haynes and Company, Baltimore (1883-85). Glazed earthenware, h.6.5". Possibly designed by Frederick Hackney, who was an English potter put in charge of artistic production by Francis Haynes. The factory hired art students, mostly women, from the Maryland Institute School of Design in Baltimore. This example, which may be called Calvert-Ware, came in a variety of colors. Condition: without flaws. We don't know how much of this pottery was produced but if this pitcher was use for milk, soapstone and porcelain kitchen sinks are very unforgiving to pottery, porcelain and glass and few examples have probably survived. Price: $895.00.


# 5488. An antique American Aesthetic movement Severn Ware pitcher from David Frances Haynes; the pitcher is bulbous and low in form; it was hand thrown and lathe turned; it has an applied gilt trim banding around the neck with a repeated gilt arabesque pattern; on one side there are applied silver and gilt leaves, flowers and buds and one butterfly. Materials: clays, gilt and vitreous glazes/paints. Dominant colors: olive grey-green / gold and silver. Size: 8" handle to edge of bulbous section of pitcher; 6" tall. This pitcher has a high gloss fired glaze, most of this ware has an unglazed surface. Date made: c. 1881 - 1885. Made in Baltimore, Maryland . Designer: David Frances Haynes at Chesapeake Pottery Co. Mr. Haynes was from New Hampshire and worked in a foundry in Baltimore; he was sent south to establish a factory, and in the process became fascinated with qualities and characteristics of clays for molds. He returned to Baltimore and started his new enterprise, taking on partners after 1887. Mr. Haynes was committed to the "art for art's sake" thesis of the Aesthetic Movement, so he did not try to create exquisitely rare and beautiful pieces for the rich in the manner of Tiffany, but rather wanted useful and beautiful items made affordable by the masses. Condition: without issue. Unmarked. Price: $2,500.00


# 3767. A ceramic / pottery / Pedestal. Made between 1890 and 1910. Thickly glazed dull white surface over a solid composition material. Size: app. 42" tall and the top will support an object 9.5" across. Condition: various flakes and glaze crackelature. This is a very heavy stone like pedestal. Probably made for an indoor conservatory or to be used outside. We had this in our garden for a couple of years with the Newport, Rhode Island cold not affecting the integrity of the pedestal. We have seen a turn of the century catalogue from the firm of Liberty of London that pictured similar garden pedestals and this (unmarked) pedestal may be from the firm of Liberty and Company. Difficult (but possible) to ship. Price: $4,500.00.


# 5141. A French Art Pottery Vase. Etched signature for Gaziello Vallauris. Size: 11.75" or 30cm tall. The metallic glaze varies from top to bottom: copperish on the top to a green on the base. The glaze is a little different on each side. The surface is bumpy with the entire vase having a hand hammered finish. Condition: a rim glaze line from the top down for about 1.5" plus another glaze line on the opposite side of the top, impossible to photograph. Both glaze lines are about the same size; and two under base edge flakes. A very attractive vase. The form is pinched at the top to create a quatrafoil lip with the appearance of fluting almost to the base. Price $1,650.00.


# 4864. A Heliosine Ware pottery Art Nouveau Vase. Circa 1910. 21.5" tall and a 5.5" square base. Marked under the glaze: Heliosine Ware Austria with a crown. Incised Numbers "21039" and "3". We believe that the crown mark is for the firm of Ernst Wahliss. They were a retailer and maunfacturer, opening a shop in Vienna in 1836 with branches in London (1888) Berlin (1896); they were agents for Reissner, Stellmacher & Kessel and Zsolnay. The firm was renamed Alexander Porcelain Works Ernst Wahliss in 1905. This information is from Marks and Monograms of the Modern Movement by Malcolm Haslam which is an excellent reference book (ISBN 0 7188 2291 9) Condition: two very long cracks on oposite sides of the very tall vase from the top down about 8". Rubbing to the dull metallic glaze. A very large example of this most uncommon line of Art Nouveau Ceramics. Price: $950.00.


Item # 172. A Hungarian Figure of a male. c. 1910-15. Cubist in form. Mark for the Obuda Factory of Budapest Hungary. Incised initials of the artist: "M.Gy." This size of this figure is 9.75" tall. The Glaze: Obuda glazes had some relationship to glazes from the Zsolnay Factory, but they were more reserved. This brown dull metallic glaze has an undertone of green, blue and purple gradiations. Condition: two chips, one on the leg and the other on the base; flea bites to the top of the plateau that the figure is standing on. Most Cubist decorative arts from Central Europe seem to come from Czechslokavia, this exceptional item reflects an international style that was also experiemented with in Hungary. For every 1000 pieces of Zsolnay that comes to the market, you find only one from the Obuda Factory. Price: $1,500.00


# 4840. A Three piece Clock Garniture. Soft Paste Pottery. From the workshop of Jean Pointu working at Saint-Amand-en-Puisaye . Size of the clock is: 19" tall x 13" wide and 7" deep. Each of the two vases at 13" tall x 9" wide and 6" deep. Condition: multiple edge flakes to the very three dimensional applied flowers and leaves. Mark with a factory incised mark. The clock itself strikes on the hour and half hour and is in operating condition. Circa 1880's. The price for the three piece set is: $3,000.00.


# 4342. A 4 piece set including three plates (7" diameter) and a cup and saucer.Copper Lustre rims outline hand painted figures from the Bayeux Tapestry. This art pottery service was meant to be used for display. The only person I know of who worked with copper lustre AND Bayeux Tapestry designs was Louis Dismant who worked at tSubles in Normandy. His mark was incised. The backs of these items is incised marked, but with the initials "RB" in hand written script and the word "BAYEUX". Each piece is marked. I would date the service early 20th century. Condition: edge flakes to the lustre but not to the pottery. Price: $450.00 the set.


# 4678 is an Period Art Nouveau vase. In the Secession Style, turn of the century. Marks: painted gold numbers: "2282/0" "B80" "268". Size 13.33" (34cm) tall. Condition: gold loss consistent with use and age. Glaze: blue background with some silver crystallizations, running, metallic oxides and volcanic concretions. Country of origin: probably France.Ceramists in France experimenting with similiar glazes were: Dalpayrat, Dammouse, Delaherche, Doat, Lachenal, etc. Price: $850.00.


# 3587. Pictured is a majolica jardiniere 10½" tall and 12 " in diameter. Factory mark for Ault (England). Register number: 165933. Consistent with designs and colors used by Dr. Christopher Dresser. Edge restorations. Inquiry
