This is an outstanding piece of majolica; just the size alone gets your attention! It has a beautiful colored background of pineapple and basket weave designs. On one side of the bulbous body is a bunch of dark purple grapes hanging from a vine with leaves intermingled in raised relief. The other side has an apple, a pear and a few cherries in soft muted colors of reds, yellows and oranges. The stems of the apple and pear are crossed with beautiful dark green leaves attached. The inside is a mauve color tying in with the beige background nicely. The handle is a dark brown with raised designs. This beauty is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks! IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
