Fair Views 2

Some more views @ The Great Sydney Antiques Fair.

This wonderful plate in the background is Sévres, from a grand service made for Prince Napoleon in 1856, and most probably used in his Pompeian House in Paris. An identical example can be seen in the British Museum.
Either side are a rare pair of Neiderviller figures of children in unglazed biscuit porcelain, circa 1780. Forefront is a Berlin miniature biscuit figure of a gent, dated 1846, looking nervously at the 19th century Meissen chickens and quail at the very front.

This is a Royal Worcester Parian figure - once again unglazed porcelain- known as Against the Wind, and dating to 1865.
The red glass includes Moser of Karlsbad and some Victorian 'Mary Gregory' of the 1880's.
In the background you will see a large pair of French pink vases with trailing overlay foliage designs from the same period.

Here's a couple of regency bronze cherubs, earlier 19th century, and an amazing Minton plate with pate-sur-pate borders and a central Cupid painted by Boullemeier......

The plate in the background is Sèvres, made 1900 and decorated with a superb historical interior scene in 1901.
The white teapot is a miniature Vienna example, c.1785, while the pink is Spode c. 1820!
The building is an unusual Staffordshire miniature c. 1830, while the figures are late 19th century German.
