New Majolica Rabbit Tray & Examples of Original Majolica Marks

This new majolica tray features nibbling rabbits surrounded by tomato vines and stalks of celery with heads of lettuce for a border. Designs are molded in high relief; entire piece in a medium forest green. Generally well made with good mold detail and a fully glazed back side. These were made in Portugal; marked "Zrike-Portugal". Retail price was around $22. No other new pieces known in this pattern.

Although some old majolica similar to this piece could have been made in Portugal, the majority of old inexpensive serving pieces with animal themes were made primarily in France, ca. 1880-1910. Some of the most commonly found authentic marks on French majolica of this time period are shown below the tray.
