Majolica simply means that it's an opaque glazed pottery.....and it sure appears to be that!
It looks to be American art pottery from the early 20th century....likely Weller. Is it in 2 pieces? Any chips or cracks? any markings on it anywhere? maybe the pedestal and the bowl did not originally go together?
At any rate it's very very nice!!

I don't think it's Weller.

You're so lucky to have both pieces. Usually one or the other gets broken. Any marks on the bottom of either piece?

Weller has a similar 2 piece thing called a Jardiniere & Pedestal page 717. That 1 is not your pattern tho. There is a mug listed as Oranges that is similar colors to painting of the top bowl. Antique Trader Pottery & Porcelain Ceramics guide 2006. So they did have a bowl on top of a pedestal but I don't think yours are oranges as orange leaves don't look like that.

Thanks for the responses. It is two pieces. It says Wardle England under both pieces and under the top piece it says 2261.

Google Wardle Pottery Jardiniere or even just Wardle Pottery. Maybe if you reference the number in a search, there might be some specific info.

If you "google" Wardle jardiniere on stand, the first image to come up is the same as yours. Check carefully on both pieces to see if they have a signature. Fredrick Rhead became art director around the turn of the century & if it has his signature the value goes up significantly.
I've sold unsigned Wardle jardinieres on stands for around $600-800.

Good job. I didn't think it was Weller..doesn't look typical of it. Weller did make a line titled Majolica and I am very familiar with that pattern, but it doesn't look anything like the picture.

I thought it could be Weller Dickensware....but couldn't find any pictures of that pattern. No, certainly nothing like their majolica line

Here is a link that might be useful: Dickensware
