Colonial Arts, James Eddy
Large mid-19th-century Granadino Fuente charger from Granada, Spain. Classic blue and white with a large blossoming flower surrounded by whimsical foliate motifs. Beautiful deep cobalt glaze over a milky white slip.
After years of travel, stints in architectural design, and a decade of compulsive collecting, James Eddy founded Colonial Arts as a cyber-enterprise in 1998. Housed today in a historic brick-and-timber building in the San Francisco Design Center, the gallery focuses on high-quality Spanish Colonial and folk art from Spain and the Americas, sensational Continental furniture, tribal art, period silver, textiles, jewelry, and an impressive assortment of reference materials.
