  • Vintage item from the 1980s

This pie pan and its matching lid were made of grey stoneware with overall blue sponging by the Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery in Roseville, Ohio. They are in absolutely pristine, unused condition, with no marks, chips or cracks. The pie plate is 9 1/2 inches in diameter and 2 inches deep, while the lid is 10 inches in diameter and 4 inches tall to the top of the round knob handle. The set weighs 6 1/4 pounds and has impressed marks on the bottom that read: Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery Roseville, Ohio USA.

The Ransbottom brothers—Frank, Ed and Mort—started a pottery in 1900 that became the largest producer of stoneware jars. In the 1920’s, when stoneware jars were losing popularity, they merged with the Robinson Clay Products Company to become RRP, making bricks, sewer tiles and other clay products; they added kitchen wares in the 1930’s. They proved to be one of the few companies that made it into the 21st century producing serviceable stoneware (they went out of business in 2005).

This spongeware set can be used for your favorite pie recipe or as a covered serving dish and looks great sitting on a cupboard shelf.

Description

This one of a kind original sculpture was made of heavy natural clay, hollow but weighing nine pounds, two ounces. The subject is a very sensitively portrayed woman’s head that was given a finish of bronze colored glaze, with darker glaze in the nooks and crannies to emphasize details like hair and eyes. Obviously done by a very talented sculptor, it is unsigned or marked in any way.

This wonderful sculpture stands 10 inches tall and measures 8 inches across the widest part of the woman’s face. The flared base is oval, 5 inches by 4 1/2 inches and the piece is in excellent condition–no cracks or breaks, no marring of the glaze. This is a work of art you’ll be proud to own and display.More Details

Description

This dramatic Deco pair of wandmaskes {wall masks} comes from the workshops of the German company Achatit Werkstätten, which was founded in 1948 by Hans Schirmer and the sculptor Peter Ludwig, who designed these fantastic wall masks. They trademarked a new material, one made by boiling fine powdered stone with sawdust and a binding agent, which was then poured into a mold. After they cooled, the sculptures were painted and/or gilded, then polished with agate stones. The word agate is “achat” in German, which is how both the material and the company got their names. The process produced a non-ceramic material that is often mistaken for ceramic.

Both of these wall sculptures are 10 inches tall and project about 3 1/2 inches out from the wall. The lady on the left in photograph #1 measures 6 inches at its widest, while the one on the right is 7 1/2 inches at its widest. The right hand one has two gold foil labels on the back; one label has the company name and a drawing of a sculptured head, while the other label reads HANDARBEIT {handwork/handmade}, MADE IN GERMANY HANDIWORK. Both were made in the 1950’s {later ones use the copyright symbol or the word copyright}. Although they are marked ‘made in Germany,’ they were actually made in West Germany, in the city of Cologne {Köln in German}, which was located in West Germany during the decades that Germany was divided.

These beautiful wall masks are in fantastic condition, with no chips, cracks or discernible wear to the paint or finish. Perfect for that spot where a painting or print just won’t do. More Details…

Description

This incredible, enormous bowl was hand crafted in Sweden of a burl from a silver birch tree. It is an example of träslöjd, traditional Swedish woodworking, with wonderful figured grain, deep color and a natural, unlacquered finish.

The form is uncommon, in that the swooping bowl is attached to another long piece of burl that serves as the pedestal, elevating the bowl for a dramatic profile. The bowl is signed on the bottom of the pedestal, burned into the wood:

Hans Thörnvall
Björk {Swedish for ‘birch’}
48
Our information is that Hans Thörnvall lived in Herrljunga in western Sweden. More Details…

This pretty lidded ginger jar with its original footed wood stand is Imari ware, a style of porcelain named for the port in Japan from which it was exported.

The vase measures 6 inches tall to the top of the gilded knop; when on its round stand, it’s 7 inches tall. The black wood stand itself has a diameter of 5 1/2 inches. Both the vase and the stand are in like-new condition, ready to display with pride and a Japanese flair. More Details…

Description

These Chinese export white porcelain bowls are decorated in the Nanking pattern with underglaze transfers in blue. The pattern, named after the port in China where much of these wares were exported, depicts a large pagoda in the center, a bridge over a river, mountains and clouds, among other motifs. The Nanking pattern differs from the very similar Canton pattern by having a border of spears and a human figure on the bridge. The lattice design on the rim has panels that repeat in miniature the designs in the center. The clay body has the expected grit in it and the ink has flowed in the central design of each bowl, on some a bit more heavily than others.

4 Nanking Porc. Bowls Blue & White Mark Only - 1933 x 1728-jpg.JPG

The bowls have a glossy clear top glaze on all but the foot ring. There is a double blue line around the rim and one around the foot, which are traditional. The underglaze seven character mark reads: Yun Mun Ci Chang, which translates to “The People’s Porcelain Factory,” which dates the bowls from the 1970’s.

Each bowl is about 8 inches across and 1 1/2 inches high. Each holds about 8 ounces (1 cup), should you want to use them for soup or stir fry. They’re in like-new condition and immaculate. They display beautifully and mix well with other blue and white Asian wares. More Details…
