Majolica Albarello or Apothecary Jar, dated 1724 Up for sale is a wonderful stoneware albarello or apothecary jar. For more on this type of vessel, visit Wikipedia, searching for albarello. The albarello features a majolica glaze in blue, green, yellow and brown. The “front” shows a heraldic shield with a crown, lily and palm sheaf with the letter “M” and possibly other letters below. Under this is a cartouche reading “Carmine Perreca” (or something like that) and “Pin – 1724”. The “4” is smudged and may be another number/date. Above the shield is a seraphim and crown. On either side of the shield are two charming cherubim, with a garland of fruit above and potted plants below. Size: The albarello measures 7” in height and 3 5/8” in diameter across the rim. Condition: A portion towards the top has been broken and roughly repaired. There are four (or possibly five) pieces that broke off and have been glued back on. In addition, there is a hairline crack running from one of the broken pieces to the forward-looking cherub’s face, about 5” in length. Also to note are glaze pops to one section from the time of manufacture. Despite the less-than mint condition, this is a lovely piece that displays well. Perhaps a more skilled restorer could bring it back to its original humble glory. Enjoy!
