Stair will highlight ceramics from Mario Buatta’s collection in the upcoming auction. Known as the Prince of Chintz, the American interior designer subscribed to a maximalist design aesthetic. The presented ceramics collection includes earthenware and porcelain pieces from the 19th and 20th centuries. One key lot is a Davenport pottery set from the company’s early production period, which featured vibrant colors and naturalistic forms. The available 56-piece service is painted with flowers.
A set of porcelain lettuce mugs from Dodie Thayer is another leading lot. Starting pottery as a hobby, Thayer was popular among the likes of Jacqueline Kennedy, Frank and Barbara Sinatra, C. Z. Guest, and the Palm Beach elites. She crafted her pottery from castings of real lettuce leaves. A Wedgwood creamware service is also available. The early 19th-century set is patterned with fallen leaves. View the complete catalog and register to bid for these items on Bidsquare.
