Vintage Yellow and Red Cheese/Butter Cloche - SylvaC - 2327


Unusual and fairly rare cheese/butter cloche dating, I think, from the 1940s/50s by SylvaC. Rhubarb and custard coloured with a yellow dish and maroon lid, both decorated with white wavy lines. The dish is marked on the base with the mould number, 2327. In very good condition. There is some crazing to the dish and there's a hairline crack near one corner of around 3cm long although this doesn't appear to be too bad as its discolouration would indicate it's been there for a while without any problems. There is a drip in the glaze near one bottom corner of the cloche and this gives the appearance of being cracked but I think this is an original fault. Condition otherwise is fine, colours are still bright.

20cm x 14cm (w) x 10cm

Vintage Large White BonBon Basket - SylvaC 1829

Plain white bon bon basket by SylvaC, pattern number 1829. Lovely art nouveau lines (although considerably later!) with nice textured surface to the basket and smooth handle. The pattern number and a number 4 plus Made in England are impressed on the base, SYLVAC being stamped on. Apart from crazing, which could be deliberate crackle glaze, it's in excellent condition.

Vintage German Jug

This is a vintage German jug/vase. I have no idea of the maker or date as the base just says "Germany 557". This could easily be from any era - some manufacturers' marks took no notice of partition but the design suggests 50s/60s. It's quite striking, with a run brown/damson glaze over white with a spot of bright orange and green on the handle.

15.5cm (h) x 9cm (h)
