This Antique Majolica Golden Yellow Compote or Cake Stand has such a glorious color, an excellent and highly decorative piece to use on your table to serve food, but also perfect to display as the work of antique potter's art that it is. Made by Griffin, Hill and Smith, the design of this majolica beauty has a woven golden yellow basket weave as the background.
The top is embellished with hand painted leaf design, what makes this one rare is the two colors of the leaf edge, both pink and brown. Luscious shiny glaze, it goes all the way inside the foot as it should. Finely colored leaves adorn the bottom of the foot. Marked on the bottom, three kiln marks. This is an exceptional piece of luxury antique Majolica, a worthy addition to your high end collection, and a sterling investment.
