New MajolicaBy

New majolica

Reproduction majolica marked on the base with butterflies and flowers was sold in the mid 1990s. It was first reported in the New England states in 1994. Sam Pennington, who was at the time the publisher of Maine Antique Digest (MAD), obtained the sample (Fig. 1) after hearing complaints from dealers and collectors. Note the unusual impressed markings of butterflies and flowers (Fig. 2). These markings have no known old counterpart.
