Majolica Madness!

I am a complete nut over Majolica, you either love it or hate it.  I happen to love it and have been collecting it for many years.  My favorites are Griffen, Smith & Hill, but believe me when I out antiquing if I find a piece in nearly perfect condition at a reasonable price I grab it!!!  I am drawn to the  pinks, greens,  yellows mixed with browns.  I’ve collected so many pieces over the years that I had to finally rent a case at The Summerland Antique Collective in Montecito, California.  So if you are ever in the area check it out.

I was in Majolica heaven in Paris and I just came back from an antique show in Atlanta and they also had a ton.  Majolica is big in the South.



Check out these pieces I found in Paris…

The large plate with the crabs is a collectors piece and they were asking 6,000 Euros for it.  Way out of my price range!
