We are delighted to offer you this rare Majolica Fishing Boat Spoon Warmer with a Staple Repair. Old staple repairs are lovingly referred to as memory ware. This style of old repair was only “done for” pieces that someone loved dearly. It was tricky to do and cost money that most families did not have. A spoon Warmer is not an easy find in any medium but a Majolica one is a VERY hard to find piece of Majolica.
I have recently bought a nice collection of Majolica. Included is the rare Wedgwood Sardine Dish. The last photo shows you most of this collection. Use the search box (top right) key in Majolica and click on Bonnie Boswell Antiques to see all my pieces.
DIMENSIONS: 3 ½” tall max X 8 ½” long X 4 ½” wide
CONDITION: The staple repair is found on the handle. It goes through to the interior of the boat. It was well placed and blends into the pattern quite well. There is an old hairline mark on the top of the handle. It has not opened up at all it is tight. Given the rarity of this piece I would say this is in Very nice vintage condition.
Payment expected at time of purchase for single item purchases - I would be happy to help set up a layaway plan that works for you and me
