Majolica Lidded Compote w Ladle Cherry Finial Vintage
Vintage majolica tureen-style compote has a lid with cherry finial and a ladle with cherries and leaves on the handle. Cherries and other fruits are in raised bas relief on one side of the compote to idicate its use. 6.5" high x 6" wide at the handles, 4-5/8" in diameter. Ladle is 5.5" long. Unglazed inner rim and edge of lid are not glazed indicating that the lid was fired in place. Overall network of fine crackles. Unfortunately, there's a rim chip at the back of the compote measuring 1/2" long by 1/4" high... but it's still a nice looking piece. Purchased from an estate sale.
