Imagine a piece of Italian history decorating a flower bed or an entryway. Majolica is a Middle Eastern tin-glazed pottery that dates to the Italian Renaissance period, during which time the pottery was being exported into Italy through the Isle of Majorca. The colored pieces are often on a white background and usually depict historical or mythical scenes. Such are the pieces in the Majolica Auction offered by Alderfer Auction.
Highlighted in the auction is a Majolica jardinière and pedestal. These matching pieces are painted black with strategically placed brown mythical creatures. The jardinière and pedestal would be great for a small rose bush, pretty hydrangeas or any combination of small flowers and plants. Another item in the auction is a Majolica umbrella stand. This stand features a black heron standing in front of a tall green grass and pink flowers. The stand is 17” in height and 8” in diameter making it perfect for holding an umbrella by the entryway. Also included is also a Majolica pedestal painted light brown and covered in light green and brown grapes and green leaves. The pedestal would be a great centerpiece outdoors or in. Additional pieces in the auction consist of plaques, serving pieces, center bowls, and more. Visit Alderfer Auction to view all 35 pieces.
