Large EAPG Lily Of The Valley Footed Covered Compote - For Sale
Large EAPG Lily Of The Valley Footed Covered Compote
From the 1870's, I am pleased to be offering this VERY hard to find low footed, covered compote. This beautiful piece was produced by Richards & Hartley circa the 1870's and features a lovely pattern of what appears to be lily of the valley flowers. Recent research and the discovery of Richards & Hartley original catalog sheets have revealed that the original manufacturer's name for this pattern is actually "MAYFLOWER".A nice large piece, the compote measures approximately 8 1/2" in diameter and 9" in height. In considering the "test of time", I would say the compote is in very good condition. There are some minor usage marks, which are to be expected, and a couple of very small chips on the inner rim of the lid, but none of these are major or extremely visible. And the minor imperfections certainly do nothing to distract from the overall beauty of this wonderful piece of EAPG. A real treasure.If you will check out all of the pics, you will see scans from the 1870's catalog featuring this lovely pattern.
