C. Paderni; N. Billy, Centeur, Youth with Lyre, Herculaneum
By Herculaneum Pottery
Located in Norwich, GB
Mythology: Centeur, Youth with Lyre - Fresco from the discoveries at Herculaneum. Overall 49 x 37 cm copper engraving in later hand colour. Issued from the work "Delle Antichità di Ercolano - Le Pitture Antiche D´Ercolano e contorini..." detailing the latest discoveries from Herculaneum. References: Borroni II, 5422. Cicognara 2645. Ornamentstichslg. Berlin 3947. Graesse I, 145: "Ouvrage magnifique...” Very good overall condition. Light marginal spotting. The excavations at Heculaneum began in 1711, when a well was being dug for the new country house of Emmanuel Maurice, Duke of Elbeuf at Portici. The well turned out to have been sunk into the buried and richly ornamented proscenium of the theater of Herculaneum, and yielded several valuable marbles, including a statue of Hercules. The duke was extremely short of money. He smuggled the pieces to Rome to be restored, and then "gave" them to Prince Eugene of Savoy, his cousin. In 1738 Charles VII of Naples - after 1759, Charles III of Spain - began excavations to find objects for his private collection of antiquities, imposing tight security on the site. Interest was maintained by the hope of finding more objects of similar value to the first set of statues...

Antique Red Greek Ware Soup Tureen Decorated with Classical Figures circa 1810
By Herculaneum Pottery
Located in Katonah, NY
WHY WE LOVE IT: If anyone has more of this please call. We are pleased to offer this antique red Greek ware soup tureen decorated with classical figures. The color is just glorious, and we are thrilled to be offering this tureen. In the 57 years we've been in business we have only had the red Greek ware twice. It is rare. Both the top and the body of the tureen show classical scenes in four shield shaped and four vase shaped panels. The panels show a variety of daily scenes including men and women in conversation, women in their morning preparations for the day, and figures giving gifts. Each panel shows a unique scene. Adding to the neoclassical design are notable red and white striped handles. Around the handle at the top of the cover are animals in a field of flowers. We see a pig, a dog, a deer, and a unicorn. The animals shown on the tureen cover are an added and charming detail. According to the Fitzwilliam Museum the neoclassical "Greek" pattern, introduced in 1806, catered to the demand for classical subjects created by the Greek Revival style. Each piece in the service contains unique scenes derived from engravings of Greek vases in the collection of Sir William Hamilton (see images). The decoration is printed on earthenware. The Herculaneum factory made this tureen circa 1810. In the shop we also have a set of eight dinner dishes in this pattern see 1stdibs Ref: LU866511781911. Background: The Herculaneum Pottery was based in Toxteth, Liverpool, England. The new company engaged about forty men from the Staffordshire Potteries. Between 1794 and 1841 the factory made creamware and pearlware pottery as well as bone china porcelain. The owners of the company christened the factory "Herculaneum", after the ancient city in Campania, Italy. The original Herculaneum was destroyed together with Pompeii by the Vesuvius...
