Antique Parian Bracket Wall Shelf Rococo Acanthus Scrolls Porcelain Bisque 1860
A very attractive, highly decorative and collectable English parian or bisque porcelain wall bracket, hanging shelf dating from around 1860.
The bracket has high relief moulded decoration featuring scrolling acanthus leaves which scroll outwards to form the support for the canted corner flat shelf. The back is hollow and has three holes for screws on which to hang the shelf.
The wall bracket stands 8 1/2 inches high and has a platform size of 7 1/2 inches wide by 6 1/4 inches deep. There are no maker's marks as is often the case with items of this period. It was probably produced by one of the Staffordshire factories of the day possibly Minton or Copeland, but Worcester also made these wall hanging shelves..
The shelf is in excellent antique condition with no damage nor restoration. It has thick walled porcelain and is heavy weighing 1948 grammes unpacked.
This is a great item for any collector of antique porcelain or as a decorators piece for a period or a contemporary home. Please see my other antique ceramics also listed for sale this week.
