This 19th century Sardine Box with attached underplate is a Majolica dream! 

The glazed tri-colored design with seaweed detail, the surprise pop of pink inside( I’ve only seen cream in these boxes) and topped with the pile of sardines on top are a classic. It’s the perfect piece to add to a Majolica collection or to start one. 
I acquired this piece at the estate of two highly regarded college professors who after retirement in the 1990s turned their love for collecting into a prosperous antique business selling in Round Top as well as across the South.
As you can imagine, their estate was unbelievable…it had the most extensive Majolica collection I’ve ever seen. They were avid book collectors, orchid enthusiasts, and custom framers who expertly framed botanicals and birds from antique books and magazines. 
It measures 8” wide x 4.5” tall with the lid and is in lovely vintage condition. There is light wear and some crazing associated with age. There’s no maker’s mark.
