  • Set of Five $75.00
The Crown Staffordshire Porcelain Company was located at the Minerva Pottery Works, Fenton, Staffordshire; the firm was established in 1889 and achieved a well-deserved reputation for high quality porcelain. This set of 5 plates is in the Davenport pattern, a Chinoiserie design that is yet so classically English, in rose pink, pale blue, green and yellow, set against the pure white porcelain. These dinner plates measure 9 1/2 inches in diameter and 1 inch high and each plate weighs 1 pound 2 1/2 ounces. Every one of them is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, stains or utensil marks---in fact, it appears that they have never been used. 

The mark printed in green on the backs of the plates say "Estd 1801." This refers to the building of the pottery works themselves, a common ruse to make the company appear older than it was. The mark on these plates came into use in 1906 and was replaced circa 1930 by new marks that incorporated the words "Fine Bone China." In 1948, the company changed their name to Crown Staffordshire China Co., Ltd. and was purchased by Wedgwood in 1973. Though they are not as well-known as Minton or Royal Doulton, Crown Staffordshire made beautiful, highly decorative wares.

Seashells and Pine Needles Vintage Wall Basket

Seashells and Pine Needles  Vintage Wall Basket

OVERVIEW

  • Vintage item 
  • Ships worldwide from United States
  • Free USA Shipping
This large, oval pine needle wall tray decorated with myriad varieties of seashells is the finest example we have ever offered for sale. The tray itself, beautifully woven of longleaf pine needles bound with narrow strips of raffia, is finished at the handles with graduated circlets of raffia, an unusual decorative touch. Set under glass on a bed of black felt, the bouquet of seashell flowers is accented with plastic ferns and stems of lily of the valley and surrounded by three seashell butterflies. The whole effect is quite eye-catching and very intricate. The overall design is reminiscent of the Victorian dried flower arrangements under glass. We're dating it from the 1940's, in our best estimation. Read More

Vintage Charming Black and White China Muffineer

Vintage Charming Black and White China Muffineer

Sugar Caster Circa 1950

This charming black and white china figure is a muffineer, made in Staffordshire, England around 1950. It's a great example of post-war modern design. A muffineer, also known as a sugar caster or sugar sifter, is used as a shaker to sprinkle sugar, spices, etc. on food, originally on muffins, hence its name. This large fellow with his wide grin reminiscent of today's "happy face," his bowler hat and his black suit is perched on a wall like Humpty Dumpty. 

The top of his hat has seven large shaker holes while the boxy bottom holds the sugar or spice. It's filled from the very bottom, through a hole that retains its rubbery stopper and is marked with the words "Staffordshire England" printed in brown. There is some fine crazing to the glaze, but otherwise this muffineer is in excellent condition. It's 8 1/2 inches tall, has a rectangular base that is about 2 inches by 3 inches and it weighs 14 ounces. Figural sugar shakers are difficult to find, especially when they're in this condition--they were, after all, used at table. When this bloke is on your table, your tea and crumpets will always leave a smile on your face.

Abingdon Console Bowl 1940's

Abingdon Console Bowl 1940's

Description
This pretty pale peach console bowl was made by Abingdon Pottery in Abingdon, Illinois between 1934 and 1950. A console bowl was meant to be displayed on a console table, which is a table designed to fit against the wall, supported by brackets attached to the wall or with legs resembling brackets. The bowls were quite popular during the 1940’s and into the 1950’s.

Peach Console Dish Bottom View Showing MarkPeach Console Dish Empty-N-

This bowl has a scalloped upper rim, a scrolled handle on each end and a molded acanthus leaf on the interior below each handle. It is 14 inches long, 6 inches wide at the center and 3 ¾ inches high. On the base there is a very clear blue Abingdon USA stamp in a rectangle and the impressed mold number 532.

Abingdon pottery used very high quality clay and beautiful glazes. This example is in wonderful condition, with no chips, cracks, nicks or crazing and little wear.

The pale peach color of this bowl works well as a neutral with many other interior design color schemes.

Sorry, the peaches are not included.

Robinson-Ransbottom Trio of Spongeware Pitchers

Robinson-Ransbottom Trio of Spongeware Pitchers

Description

This set of three spongeware pottery pitchers was made by Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery. There are two 1 pint pitchers and one 1 quart pitcher, all sponged in blue on a creamy white body with a clear top glaze. Each piece has a stamped mark in black on the bottom that includes the company name, the city, state and USA and the word "pitcher" with the capacity. 




Robinson Ransbottom was created by a merger of two companies in 1920 and proved to be one of the few companies that made it into the 21st century producing serviceable stoneware (they went out of business in 2005). Since they were located in Roseville, Ohio, their items are sometimes misidentified as being made by Roseville Pottery, a company famous for their art pottery. 

Each one of these 1970's pitchers is in excellent condition, with just crazing to the clear glaze. It's interesting to note that the sponging on each pitcher varies in amount, with the very slightly shorter pint one having the most. The pint pitchers measure about 4 3/4 inches in height and the quart one measures about 6 1/4 inches tall. They are heavy, sturdy pitchers and a delight to use for serving, decorate with or add to your spongeware collection.

National Uncommon Yellow Ware Bowl

National Uncommon Yellow Ware Bowl

Description

We don't find marked yellow ware bowls all that often and certainly not ones by National Pottery, one of the companies located on Potters Alley in Roseville, Ohio in the early 20th century. They made utilitarian pottery like bowls, cookware and flower pots for about 20 years.


We found National Pottery listed in Chilton's Hotel Supply Index published in 1922; in a Popular Science Magazine classified ad published in 1923 and The Thomas Register of American Manufacturers in 1922. By 1925 they were operating two potteries, one down the street from the other, but a major fire in 1938 brought an end to the operations.

The mark on this bowl, "NATIONAL," is impressed on the bottom inside the foot ring. It has three outer chocolate brown bands and is made of thick, buttery yellow clay with a lovely glossy glaze. Measurements are 7 1/2 inches across the top, tapering to a 3 3/4 inch diameter base, about 3 inches in height and a weight of 1 1/2 pounds. Other than the usual glaze pops, pinholes and stilt marks typical of these homespun wares, this piece has underglaze discolorations around the rim both inside and out. There are no chips, cracks or repairs. (The "dent" you see on the rim in photographs #1 and #5 is in the clay itself, made during the potting; it's not a chip). We recommend that the bowl not be used with wet ingredients, but placed on a shelf for vintage decor or used to hold dry stuffs like fruit or nuts. It's an exciting find for the serious collector of yellow ware or American pottery.
