This is a remarkable two piece Minton Majolica berry strainer and bowl set. It will hold about a quart of berries depending on size. It is decorated with bright blue, white, green mottled colors. The bowl has two handles in a nice green color. The insert has holes so the water can drain off of the fruit. There are no chips or cracks. There is a hairline glaze crack on the underside of the strainer but it is not into the pottery. This is a superb piece of majolica that is very rare and hard to find. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE 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.
Backstamp: impressed Minton, also Minton LTD with impressed 34, 1, 8 and a circle
