VILLEROY & BOCH Antique WASH BASIN PITCHER SOAP DISH BOWL
Dresden 3700 VICTORIAN
Villeroy & Boch china lot which
includes a Wash Basin, Pitcher, Soap Dish, and two (2) additional
pieces in the same pattern.
We are pleased to present this Villeroy
& Boch lot for your consideration. The pattern is number
3700 which is a simple and elegant design featuring a green
accent band with gold trim. Based on the mark, we date the pieces
to the 1874 to 1909 period.
All of the pieces are marked with a
Villeroy & Boch brown backstamp under the glaze (showing
a Mercury figure at top with DRESDEN at the bottom).
Most also have the pattern number 3700 marked in green
on the surface of the glaze. You will receive the following
Wash Basin. The Basin measures
5 inches high and is 15-3/4 inches in diameter, weighing 7 pounds
12 ounces. Extensive crazing. No gold trim visible. The interior
shows many fine scratches, similar to utensil marks, but glaze
retains a nice shine. Some tiny chips are found on the bottom
edges of the foot but quite minor. There are no significant
chips, and no cracks, or repairs. We rate the overall condition
as very good (see pictures).
Pitcher. Matching Pitcher for
the Wash Basin. It measures 11 inches high and weighs 4 pounds
15 ounces. Crazing on all surfaces. Some gold trim, but quite
worn - we estimate only 20 percent of gold trim remains. Normal
bottom wear on foot. There are no chips, cracks, or repairs,
and we rate the overall condition as very good.
Soap Dish. It measures 1-1/2
inches high, 5-1/2 inches wide, and 3-7/8 inches deep, weighing
7 ounces. Only about 5 percent of the gold trim remains. Extensive
crazing. This piece shows quite a bit of wear, with shallow
chipping at the top of the rim with one moderate chip on the
underside of the rim. The raised ridges on the inside have flat
spots where the glaze and underlying material has worn away.
No cracks or repairs. Despite the wear, still quite usable.
We rate its condition as good.
Bowl. It measures 1-1/4 inches
high and 6-7/8 inches in diameter at the rim, weighing 11 ounces.
Pattern 3700 marked in gold letters, not green, on this piece
only. Minimal crazing. Some utensil marks but good shine to
glaze. Only about 10 percent of the gold trim remains. No chips,
cracks, or repairs. We rate its condition as very good.
Rectangular Ridged Bowl. It
measures 1-1/4 inches high, 9-1/8 inches wide, and 3-1/2 inches
deep, weighing 9 ounces. Two shallow ridges at bottom of interior.
Extensive crazing. Gold trim 50 percent intact. No chips, cracks,
or repairs. We rate its condition as very good.
The total weight of the lot is 14 pounds
