Private Sale from my own collection
This is a beautiful and very unusual two handled centerpiece – an antique 19th century majolica ornate tureen / bowl with gnomes, winged gryphons, and what appears to be a cat eating a fish on top of the lid. The piece appears to have been custom glazed in 1970. Perfect used condition, a stunning addition to your majolica collection! The tureen measures almost 14″ tall, 15″ in width, and 10.25″ in breadth.
