Antique Majolica Asparagus Divided Serving Dish

$195.00

First appearing in 1851 at the Great Exhibition in London, Majolica ware is richly colored pottery with designs based on plant and animal motifs. By the time it was exhibited at the 1855 Paris World's Fair, it had taken the bourgeoisie of Europe and the Americas by storm. Many late 19th-century majolica designs had rustic motifs with backgrounds of basketry and were decorated with molded flowers, birds, fish and animals - nature inspired for sure.

Case in point, this lovely Antique Majolica Asparagus Divided Serving Dish. Found at market in France and dating from the early 1900s, its gorgeous aesthetic and lush details are a delight. Glazed a lovely shade of robin's egg blue, the unique dish is decorated with handpainted charms and features a raised handle at center for carrying with ease.

Divided to allow for serving both green and white asparagus or perhaps asparagus topped with two different sauces or maybe asparagus along with tender artichoke hearts, this very special divided dish is sure to make a lovely presentation, serving your every tender asparagus spear in elegant style. 


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good antique condition. Circa 1900. Handwashing recommended. 11" x 9".

Learn More About Majolica

First appearing in 1851 at the Great Exhibition in London, Majolica refers to the richly colored and imaginative pottery that boomed during the Victorian era. By the time it was exhibited at the 1855 Paris World's Fair, it had taken Europe and the Americas by storm, even gaining the approval of Queen Victoria herself!

While Majolica took on many whimsical and outlandish forms during its time in vogue, most designs were based on plant and animal motifs whose bright colors and textures brought a certain lighthearted charm to the rich but often dark and heavy Victorian decor. The nature-inspired designs were particularly popular among the urban-dwelling middle class, as Majolica was an affordable way to create an impressive decor and bring pastoral beauty into the home.
