Wedgwood Majolica Bee-form Matchbox and Cover, England, 1878, the back and wings formed as the cover with striker underneath, impressed mark.
Early 19th century Wedgwood box, in Caneware with applied Rosso Antico fruiting vines in relief. The tan-coloured, unglazed stoneware was relatively rarely used for decorative or display objects over the period, more commonly used for cooking utensils or serving dishes — particularly a selection of game pie dishes — as Josiah Wedgwood recognised the ware’s potential for simulating an impression of pastry crust. Provenance: Property of the Saint Louis Art Museum, Sold to benefit the acquisition fund. One corner of box professionally restored. One saucer with slight rim chip.
Each roundel mounted with Blue Jasper with applied white classical sacrifice subject, sight dia. 2 3/4; mounted to a brass-trimmed, aesthetic-style, ebonized door panel
