Nearly a year ago there was a blog post posted about our Majolica Reproductions. I only just found it today! I thought it was a fairly good read and wanted to share it with you! Check is out here: CLICK
I have fallen in love with our Majolica Cobalt Blossom Teapot
and Mugs from our Milestone collection. Two very close friends recently mentioned how cute they were and perhaps that's what influenced my sudden affection for them. "Yeah... they are pretty cute. And they're moderately priced!"
English Majolica debuted in 1851 at Prince Albert's famed Crystal Palace and the earthenware was an immediate sensation. English Majolica remains outstanding for its fanciful shapes and brilliant colors. Ours are adapted to more durable and dishwasher safe stoneware.
According the the blog above, "Mottahedeh has been in the business of creating original and historical reproduction china for the better part of 75 years. They specialize in museum copies of blue and white Chinese porcelain export china but have a broad range of products that include crystal, silver and tableware. Their history with majolica goes back to their origins. In the 1950's and 1960's they made original contemporary majolica designs for the giftware market. Given that history, it's rather surprising that they didn't begin their Victorian majolica reproductions until the late 1980's.
Their work is really very good, probably the finest reproduction majolica now available. The company produces a design for a limited period then retires it, making for a brisk market in the collectibles sector. In 100 years they may well command the same prices that Victorian majolica commands today."
Pretty neat, no?
Make it yours!
