Outstanding condition, thick stoneware mold handmade in the mid 19th century. This is a fine example of the era and patina, material and form are spectacular. Deep greenish, brown color with light surface crazing and some mold marks one would expect of a handmade piece. One edge flake and a few minor nicks from use that detract very little. Super item. The panels or ribbed designs are classics and could easily be used today. The maker is probably Southern and certainly a good 125+ years of age.

1906 Paris Scene by W. G. Reindel; This is a very misty scene of Paris with a horse drawn carriage transporting a lady in a long white dress and hat along a city street. People walk along a street in front of a very large column building with an iron fence in front. Trees and other buildings are in the background. The oil on canvas is signed and dated lower left. The frame is a custom frame made in Paris and would easily classify as either Art Nouveau or Belle Epoque era. Each of the 4 sides has a womans face carved into the decoration and the frame alone would be of major interest. The painting has been cleaned and is in excellent condition.
