This is a stunning piece of majolica by George Jones. Majolica is a pottery that was started in England by the Minton Company, 1851. The pottery quickly became popular and several other companies popped up throughout the UK and other countries. Majolica was made until about 1900. Due to the lead in the glaze, majolica has remained bright and vibrant. George Jones worked for the Minton Company before starting his own. His company was smaller and produced fewer but very special pieces. George Jones was know for whimsical pieces. Because of the fewer pieces produced, George Jones majolica is often rare and hard to find. This is the napkin plate with clover leaves by George Jones.
