This is the Cadillac of the famous Minton Majolica fan-tailed pigeon center bowl. It was produced in a variety of designs. Some came as wicker baskets with or without a lid, some with or without the daisy rim, some featuring a pierced lattice basket while others were solid. The only design features that are the same on all are the 3 sets of oak branches with oak leaves that separate the grey-blue pigeons. I'm pleased to offer here the iconic version, the DELUXE one if you like. It has it all, the lattice basket, the piercing and the daisy rim. In addition it is in great condition having only a few minor flaws. They are: 2 hair lines running from the top edge to the top of 2 diamond shaped piercings. There are restorations to 2 tips of 2 oak leaf clusters. Please see my photos keeping in mind that they are shown magnified. My price reflects these blemishes. The bowl looks fabulous, the colors are brilliant, the glaze is pristine, there are no scratches or chips. A joy to behold! Fully marked with date code for 1876, the shape number 874 plus others. 13 1/2" wide and 6" high. The bowl measures 12 1/4" in diameter. ( 34.3 x 15.3 x 31.2 cm ).
