My latest piece that wowed me this weekend!

We took a ride up to an antique show in Holliston, Mass this weekend and this is the piece that wowed me at the sale. I thought it was egyptian art deco but according to the silver marks it's Thomas Harwood from Birmingham, England and mad ebetween 1864-1896. The bottom part of the ceramic part is marked Wedgewood. I had to pay a bit more than I usually pay but I had to have it.It's funny as I get older I am liking pieces that are older. In my younger days I like the 50's and 1939 and 64 NY World's Fair but got rid of all that stuff years ago. What do you think this is...sugar bowl or candy dish?

Don't know the size.....can't see any ceramic part....but it's great!!! Is it tall enough to be a biscuit barrel?
If it's British hallmarked you should be able to tell exactly what year it was made!
Take more pictures?...please?

RE: My latest piece that wowed me this weekend!

The brown/green part is pottery and it's only 2 1/2" high and 5 1/2" in diameter.

I thought that was a reflection...
perhaps part of a dresser set?

Wedgewood Majolica. Is the interior turquoise blue?


You can date the year of manufacture by the Wedgewood mark, btw. I saw a similar piece online, with the Egpyptian motif,(no lid but identical handles) and the description described the metal as electroplate.

RE: My latest piece that wowed me this weekend!

The inside is turquoise. I think it's either for candy or sugar because I have seen a biscuit barrel around. There is an EP in the mark and it is plated because there is some wear. The word Wedgewood is incised into the bottom.

It could also be a butter server. The dimensions are adequate and Wedgewood did make some with lids.
