This is a beautiful aqua blue butter dish in a diamond hobnail pattern. It is very elegant and dainty. I do not know the age or maker, but believe it is vintage depression glass, and most likely Westmoreland English Hobnail pattern. It measures 4.5 inches high, and 6 inches across. The only damage is one of the points on the outside edge has a surface chip. You really have to feel for it to find it. These are used for butter that has been pressed into decorative wood butter molds.

This is a really cool piece of metalware marked made in Hong Kong. I believe it is a miniature tin tray, but it could be a coaster. It has a scene an Asian artist or calligrapher doing his work. It measures 1/2 deep and 4.25 inches across. It is in very good condition, no dents, very little wear, but it does have an ink mark on the bottom. I believe this to be vintage, but it is an auction item so I am not sure of the age or maker.
This is a very well made chalkware figurine of an Asian woman minstrel, playing a guitar. This lady appears to be either from Japan, or China, and looks probably circa 1940s to 1950s. She is mostly black, with gold accents, and a very nicely detailed face. She is missing very little of her paint, and is of much better quality than most examples I have seen. She measures 7.25 inches tall and 2 and 7/8 inches across the base.
This is a wonderful handmade and thrown pitcher, jug, or ewer make in Italy. It has the original made in Ital sticker on the bottom What I love about it is the soft camel, or tan background color and the fact that the floral images are added with art glazes, giving them texture. The flowers are white with graceful hand painted stylized stems and leaves in black, grey, rust, and yellow. This is probably a retro piece, but I don't know the age...

They are in excellent condition, no chips, no cracks, and no scratches or cloudiness. These are fragile and will require just a bit more for shipping safely...
