Pair 18th Century English Creamware Wall Pockets Made circa 1790

$2,400per set


We are excited to offer for sale this pair of 18th century English creamware wall pockets hand-painted in the neoclassical style. An identical pair can be found in the collection of The V & A Museum item numbers 414:1166-1885 and 414:1166/A-1885. Both pieces came to The V & A Museum from the collection of Lady Charlotte Schreiber (1812-1895), an English aristocrat who was a patroness of arts and a well-known Victorian collector of porcelain. An identical pair ls also found in the collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art Kansas City, Missouri. On page 104 of Prattware by J & G Lewis the illustration shows this pair of wall pockets which were made to hold dried flowers. The description says "A boy holding a flaming brazier of fire in high relief, emblematic of winter, a quiver at his side. The other wall pocket represents autumn. Both possibly made at Leeds Pottery, but unmarked." When decorating the space on either side of a mirror or painting many decorators choose brackets, or plates, using a pair of wall pockets is unexpected. Wall pockets will look beautiful flanking a painting or a gold leaf mirror. Dimensions: 10" tall x 6" wide x 2.5" deep" Condition: Excellent Price: $2400.
