Vintage Ironstone porcelain Mason's serpent and floral dish
with head and tail of spent as handles. Hand-painted floral, leaf, and vine design motif with gilt accents. Marked "Mason's, Ironstone, Made In England, Chartreuse, Printed And Hand-painted" on the underside.
Lovely enough to display, but made to withstand
practical use: A dazzlingly detailed traditional motif was painted freehand on sauce dishes made of extremely durable and chip resistant stoneware and hand-painted by artisans in Nabeul, Tunisia.
Vintage Italian majolica acanthus leaf serving dish with
double basin and handles. Ornate acanthus leaf design in relief on the top surface. Marked "Hand Made, Hand Painted, In Italy, By Pizzato" on the underside. Minor glaze crazing.
