Turk’s Head Tobacco Jar, 19th Century

England 2nd Half 19th Century

This has been in my home for about 20 years. I’ve been hoping to see another one identified somewhere to no avail. It appears to be similar to some English Staffordshire products but all I will say is it is 19th Century made in Europe.

Update

I finally saw another one identified as Staffordshire from the mid-19th century.

Luminous Landscape Attributed to American Charles Codman

A lovely sunset landscape attributed to Portland, Maine artist Charles Codman (b. 1800, d.1842). Codman’s work is represented in several US museums (see artist biography section on my gallery home page) and most recently the Portland Museum of art mounted a retrospective in 2003 of Codman’s work which is described on their web site.
