This is a great opportunity for a Collector or Public Museum to acquire a great work for Antonio Canaletto image of the Vedute suite of etched works .

Giovanni Antonio Canal (17 or 18 October 1697 — 19 April 1768) better known as Canaletto, was an I Italian painter of landscapes, or vedute — Views, of Venice. He was also an important etcher-print maker.
He was born in Venice as the son of the painter Bernardo Canal, hence his mononym Canaletto(“little Canal”), and Artemisia Barbieri.. Canaletto served his apprenticeship with his father and his brother. He began in his father’s occupation, that of a theatrical scene painter. Canaletto was inspired by the Roman vedutista G. P . Pannini, and started painting the daily life of the city and its people.
After returning from Rome in 1719, he began painting in his topographical style. His first known signed and dated work is Architectural Capriccio (1723, Milan, in a private collection). Studying with the older Lica Carlevariji , a moderately-talented painter of urban city scenes , rapidly became his master’s equal.
In 1725, the painter Alessandro Marchesini, who was also the buyer for the art collector-patron Steffano Conti had inquired about buying two more ‘views of Venice’, when the agent informed him to consider instead the work of “Antonio Canale… it is like Carlevaris, but you can see the sun shining in it.

Nymphenburg  Porcelains Cherish and  Collected by Museums and Collectors  for Centuries

 

 

Many Collectors have for several centuries have collected and Cherish works from the  Nymphenburg  Porcelains  Works , located in   the Nymphenburg  Palace out side of Nurenburg . The selection offers fine hand crafted dinner services of great beauty , figurines based on centuries old works of Bustelli Hand colored ,Chinoiserie Figurines ,Rococo-Cumberland-Service and several other fine works that are numerous .

The Nymphenburg Porcelain Manufactory (in German: Porzellanmanufaktur Nymphenburg), manufacturer of Nymphenburg porcelain, is situated in the Nymphenburg Palace in Munich, capital of Bavaria, and since the mid-eighteenth century has been manufacturing porcelain of high artistic value.
After his accession in 1745 Maximilian III Joseph, Prince-Elector of Bavaria, commanded the establishment of manufacturing companies in order to bail out the state finances. From 1747 attempts were made to manufacture porcelain and at the end of that year the former Neudeck Castle in the area now the Munich suburb of Au-Haidhausen was made available for that purpose. Up to 1754 the experiments were a miserable failure and lost considerable amounts of money, but in that year the efforts to manufacture porcelain finally began to succeed. In 1755 the factory received its first commission from the Bavarian court and in 1756 came the first success in painting the porcelain in color. The management of the jurist and entrepreneur Count Sigmund von Haimhausen from 1758 ensured that the factory was placed on a sound commercial footing. By 1761 it had moved to the Nymphenburg Palace, where it still is today.
Among the great artists who followed Bustelli were Dominikus Auliczek the elder (1734—1804) and Johann Peter Melchior. A great promoter of the works was Ludwig I who gave them many commissions. Particular favorites were dinner services with copies of famous paintings or with Bavarian landscapes in an antique style.

 

Outstanding values many of these retails from $ 875.00 to $ 40,000.00 in today’s Retail Galleries .  Many Fine examples can be found in Auctions Houses and On Line Auctions for  much less  for the collector .

John Flaxman & Josiah Wedgwood Neo-Classicism England

Flaxman & Wedgwood ” Neo-Classicism England “

 

 

John Flaxman works in the Neo–Classicism England was very important in the jasper ware developed by Wedgwood was a most important figures of the decorative arts developed during the Neoclassicism of great Britain .

Neoclassicism is the name given to Western movement in the Decorative and visual arts, literature, theatre, music, and architecture that draw inspiration from the “classical” art and culture of Ancient Greece or Ancient Rome. The main Neoclassical movement coincided with the 18th century Age of Enlightenment, and continued into the early 19th century, latterly competing with Romanticism. In architecture the style continued throughout the 19th and 20th centuries and into the 21st century .

John Flaxman Jr was probably the most significant artist employed by Josiah Wedgwood during his lifetime. He had a significant impact on the factory’s designs, many of which are today considered the finest examples of Josiah’s output. His works of models for so-called wine and water ewers, occasionally described as Sacred to Bacchus and Sacred to Neptune, in 1775. The same year his son began to provide models and designs, ideally suited to the white reliefs Josiah used on his fine jasper pieces, to the Wedgwood factory. Most were first modeled in wax onto slate or glass grounds before being cast for production. Many subjects for these bas reliefs were taken directly from classically-inspired themes.

. He exhibited at the Academy for the first time in 1770, and within a year had come to the attention of Josiah Wedgwood.John Flaxman Sr supplied Wedgwood with models for so-called wine and water ewers, occasionally described as Sacred to Bacchus and Sacred to Neptune, in 1775. The same year his son began to provide models and designs, ideally suited to the white reliefs Josiah used on his fine jasper pieces, to the Wedgwood factory.

My favorite example of his works are the “DANCING HOURS ” …..he original design consisted of twelve figures arranged in two panels, with six dancers on each panel. Many Wedgwood pieces, however, show three, six, or eight of the dancers. Flaxman’s dancing hours have been used on vases, teapots, wall plaques, and many other items. In many cases these are of white jasper on various colored backgrounds, but other color combinations have been used.

Many examples are found in both Museums and private Museums World wide . Unfortunately now , The Jasper ware is manufactured in very small quantity and often the best works are made only in special orders in the few existing Studios in United Kingdom while the other wares are produced out side of England . Quality examples

can be found on the secondary market by dealers and Auction Houses …

As any one in the Fine Arts and Antiques Business , I think we all agree , no two days are ever the same . Operating a On Line Retail Business and selling on a International Scale .

Unlike a ” Brick and Mortal Gallery” , we reach out and sell via Cyber Space unlike a physical gallery where you never know who may walked in , if you are fortunate to be in New York City  London , Paris or other better known Galleries Districts .

Over the Years we have sold to private collectors , dealers that are ” Major Players ” in their chosen areas of expertise and leading Museums globally and many notable public collections .

The joy of sharing that appreciation of beautiful  created by artisans   Fine Art , Porcelains d’ Art and other fine hand crafted items with others are indeed among the many joys of this profession .

Is this a Profession or Obsession , which ever you wish to call it !

I think every one from one time to another often wondered , if such loved items surviving for hundreds of years and have been collected , cherish , love and passed through time , ” What tales they could share with us as collectors and hopeless romantics  perhaps” !

All through history ,the Upper classes followed the collecting- appreciation trends of the Royal families and the Nobility . So Many of the Early Masters were in fact patronized by them . The list included Rembrandt , Durer, Goya, among many artists The decorative arts included Meissen , Nymphemberg . Later in the British Isles Porcelains were patronized by the Royal family , where Derby became ” Royal Crown Derby ” Worcester become “Royal Crown Worcester ” .

Even with the ” Royal Patronization ” from many others did not capitalized on the ” Royal added to the Name of the Manufacture ” but were supplying ware to the Rich and the Royal Family and the Titled Crowd . Some included Wedgwood , Minton , Herend .(Herend was used-collected by both Queen Victoria and the Later Princess Diana .

Crystal were supplied to the Royals and Nobility were Baccarat perhaps the oldest , In the UK and the British Isles and North America  Waterford Graced the private homes , The White House first with John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan “Biscuit Jar ” were the container for the Jelly Beans , Light Fixtures in Lincoln Center and so many more .

For many of us ofThe Middle Class we have ” Champagne Taste and a Beer

We have been asked to share a couple of our most unusual days in the life of a Art and Antique Broker with our readers .
We recently were fortunate to work with a leading Museum in the North East on brokerage of a lovely Reginald Marsh etched work “Shave and A Hair Cut ” which was a great pleasure .

One Loving son (  of a Wedgwood Collector ) Purchased a Wedgwood Campaign Urn for the ashes of his late Mother and we shipped this over night to the mortuary … I will admit i will never look at these Urns the same ever again .

Yes we have sold these and others for the Final resting place for the Family’s Most Loved Pet .

Perhaps one of our best surprises most recently is , the sale of a Sterling Silver Card Case , Purchased by a Footman for the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace . Lets admit it is NOT Every day , you sell and ship   a parcel to Buckingham Palace .

If the Card Case could talk . It was circa 1940′s in the Art Deco Style found it way into a Miami Flee Market in the 1980′s and sold by the owner and now a part of the life of a ” Royal Footman ” at Buckingham Palace .

Appreciating Classical Wedgwood Jasper Ware

Appreciating Classical  Wedgwood Jasper Ware

Josiah Wedgwood (July 12, 1730 — January 3, 1795, born Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent) was an English potter, credited with the industrialization of the manufacture of pottery.

He was a member of the Darwin — Wedgwood family, most famously including his grandson, Charles Darwin.

Born the thirteenth and youngest child of Thomas Wedgwood III and Mary Wedgwood (née Stringer; d. 1766), Josiah was raised within a family of English Dissenters. He survived a childhood bout of smallpox to serve as an apprentice potter under his eldest brother Thomas Wedgwood IV. Smallpox left Josiah with a permanently weakened knee, which made him unable to work the foot pedal of a potter’s wheel. As a result, he concentrated from an early age on designing pottery rather than making it.

In his early twenties, Wedgwood began working with the most renowned English pottery-maker of his day, T. Whieldon. There he began experimenting with a wide variety of pottery techniques, an experimentation that coincided with the burgeoning early industrial city of Manchester, which was nearby. Inspired, Wedgwood leased the Ivy Works in his home town of Burslem and set to work. Over the course of the next decade, his experimentation (and a considerable injection of capital from his marriage to a richly endowed distant cousin, Sarah Wedgwood) transformed the sleepy artisan works into the first true pottery factory.

Outstanding values many of these priced far below today’s Retail Galleries . Prices are reduced for a limited time only .
