American Themed Majolica


The Majolica International Society posted some lovely photos on their Facebook page of two American themed majolica pieces for the Fourth of July.




Aside from these two Copeland examples I can only recall seeing a couple other pieces with an American historical theme: the Wedgwood Washington-Lincoln Centennial pitcher and the John Garfield memorial pitcher.
That doesn't seem like a lot considering how large the American majolica market was at the time.




If you can think of any others please drop me a line.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
