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!
I love this fabulous lobster platter…
Here’s a glimpse of my personal collection.
This is my case at the Summerland Antique Collective. Come visit!
Love these colors!
Let me know your feedback/experience, are there any fellow collectors? I just may select a piece from my personal collection for my next giveaway!! Can’t wait to hear from you!
