Janice Paull

 

Janice Paull is an international specialist and dealer in Mason's and other English Ironstone China (1790 -1850), as well as Oriental Textiles & Art. Janice Paull exhibits at the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show because “it enables me to showcase my specialty of English Ironstone & Oriental Textiles to leading interior designers and collectors in California. It is encouraging to be an exhibitor in a show where the organizers, committee and volunteers work so hard on our behalf.”

Janice has chosen to highlight the Oriental designs on English Ironstone China with her Oriental Textiles to demonstrate how antiques from the past can be used to enhance and elevate the environments of the present, and how a theme can be attained:
“Ironstone China has always held a particular fascination for me. I began researching during the early 1960's pursuing an interest as a collector and then as a dealer. Ironstone wares are particularly attractive and today avidly sought by collectors on both sides of Atlantic. Its decorative quality and naive charm are admired by all. Many of the designs and colors were based on early Imari pieces. Imperfections such as paint runs, handles askew, all add to the charm. The vast array of patterns and shapes never fail to excite the imagination, the chance of finding a rare and interesting piece still keeps the collector ever vigilant. Identifying the factory, Turner, Spode, Davenport, Hicks & Meigh, Stephen Folch, or Ridgway, all manufacturing Ironstone-type wares in competition with Mason's and in some cases producing the same pattern. New marks on retailers, colleges, regiments and armorial are constantly
being found and recorded.”
