Majolica is an art form that has remained popular in America for the past century and a half. The pictured vase belongs to a collector in the Northern Neck, who purchased it at a local antiques shop many years ago. The condition is excellent, and the coloration is spectacular.

In the spirit of the Season, this week we have an antique German Christmas tree stand from a family originally from Washington, not from Williamsburg, after an interlude in the Northern Neck. It is a mechanical tree holder that rotates and plays a melody when its clock-like mechanism is wound with a key. Unfortunately, the key has been lost, but apparently the stand operated as long as it could be wound.

A New York family transplanted to Virginia owns this Federal Period corner cupboard, which has descended through several generations. They think the finish is original, but the facing boards have wide splits around the doors, thereby jeopardizing the glass panes. The shelves are semi-butterfly, and the cupboard is in two sections, upper and lower.
