Dated 1870 & 1872 these charming Minton Majolica Flower Holders represent Teenage Vintagers or grape harvesters attired in colorful clothing taking a break by leaning on their baskets. Both figures are fully marked. The colors were carefully and skillfully applied. The glazes are ultra shiny. Both baskets had a hairline that has been professionally restored. No chips or scratches. The pieces look Mint! A serious collector's MUST HAVE!!! They are 9 1/2" high (24.2 cm)
