Rare White Ironstone Holy Water Font, Home Devotional
The unique and rare item presented is a holy water dispenser or font designed to hang by a doorway. It measures 5 inches long by 2 1/2 inches wide. Condition is excellent - no chips or cracks. The potter is not identified on the antique. It could date anywhere from the early to late 19th century. Jean Wetherbee's book White Ironstone: a Collector's Guide, shows one quite similar to this in Fig. 17-23. She attributes it to an American potter, so I will do the same. The embossed design of the crucified Jesus is clearly visible. A wreath of laurels decorates the edge.
Early White Ironstone Copper Lustre Decorated Teapot, Grape Octagon, C. 1840
This white ironstone teapot has copper lustre banding and lustre embellishments on the grape clusters. It is octagonal in shape and bears grape images on the lid and spout. This early Staffordshire tea pot's shape is Grape Octagon. This is one of the first shapes. Its images were designed to evoke a sense of pride in the abundance of American production. Several Staffordshire potters made this during the 1840 decade. Included are Challinor, Clementson, Mayer, Livesley & Powell, Corn, Alcock, Walker, Hulme & Booth, Freakley & Farrell, Venables, and others. This one is not marked. It measures 9 inches wide by 9 inches tall. Given its early age, condition is remarkably good. There are no chips or cracks.
Large J. Wedgwood White Ironstone Vegetable Server Base, Fig Shape, C. 1856
Offered is a Fig Shape vegetable server base or bowl measuring 13 1/2 inches long by 4 inched tall. We do not have the lid.

Note the elaborate fig foliate embossing on the handles.
J. Wedgwood White Ironstone Vegetable Server Base, Fig Shape, C. 1856
The vegetable server presented was made in the J. Wedgwood pottery and dates to 1856. This is Fig Shape. We are offering only the base, so one would use it as an open server without a lid. It once was paired with a beautiful domed lid with an oversized fig finial; however, we do not have it. This piece measures 12 inches long. The ledge for the lid measures 9 by 7 inches. I mention this in case the viewer has a lid that might fit. There are two condition issues, both visible on the pictures. It has a chip on the underside of the edge, visible only if the piece is upended. A second flaw is unusual. Prior to its original glazing and firing, a flaw line existed on the interior. It was glazed over and fired in the original firing, so the piece is entirely strong and suitable for use. Given the condition issues, I am offering this piece cheap.

We are pleased to offer this Staffordshire Fig Shape tureen. This one was made in the pottery of John Wedge Wood, often misrepresented as Wedgwood, and dates to 1856.Fig is a beautiful shape.

The little white ironstone ladle presented measures 2 1/2 inches across the bowl. The handle is 5 inches long. It is quite plain and appropriate for use with any white ironstone sauce tureen. It's in good condition. There are a couple of tiny nibbles on the rim of the bowl that present more as glaze roughness than chips. There is also some black underglaze frit on the bowl as pictured.

The embossed decoration on the handle features two beaded rings with an smooth inner ring. The end of the handle is smoothly curved. Condition is excellent - no flaws.

The tureen is from the same potter; the tray is of the same period but made in a different pottery. Each is offered separately.
Large Alcock White Ironstone Soup Tureen, C. 1870 - 1881
Presented is a white ironstone soup tureen from the Richard Alcock pottery, so marked. It measures 14 inches wide by 10 inches tall with its domed lid in place. The Richard Alcock pottery operated from 1870 to 1881, so we can date it to these years. Its shape, I understand, was never named. It involves foliates at the base of the handles along with draping foliates on the sides of each loop. The top, which usually has a finial has instead the same handle. It's all very well done. It's in amazingly good shape with no chips, cracks, hairlines, stains, or repairs. One can find a slight potting flaw on the inside of the domed lid that was glazed over in the making and not considered damage. It can be seen on the photo of the lid's interior. The last photo shows this tureen with two items being sold separately, the Alcock ladle from the same pottery and period and a cracker tray from the same period but made by a different pottery.

Here is the vegetable server base in Fig Shape. It was made in the J. Wedgwood pottery and dates to 1856. The underside has the pottery's backstamp. It is in good shape with no cracks and one tiny glazed over ding to the underside of the edge, visible only when upended. It was done in the potting process and glazed over in the kiln during its original firing. There is a bit of discoloration on the inside that is visible with close inspection. It measures 12 inches long by 8 1/2 wide by 3 1/2 tall. We love the crabstock details along the octagonal sides and the deeply embossed handles. We do not have the domed lid for this piece.
J. Edwards White Ironstone Sauce Tureen Underplate, Sevres Shape, C. 1855-1860
The underplate presented is Sevres Shape. It was made in the James Edwards pottery which produced it between 1855 and 1860. It measures 9 inches long by 6 inches wide. It has an inner ridge to hold the sauce tureen in place. This ridge measures 4 1/3 by 3 inches on the inside. This describes the size on tureen it would hold. Condition is excellent - no chips or cracks.
J. Clementson White Ironstoone Teapot Base, Dallas Shape, C. 1855
This is a great white ironstone teapot in Dallas Shape. This design was made in the pottery of J. Clementson. It was registered in 1855. The imprinted backstamp has the pottery name as well as the shape name. We do not have the lid. The embossed ogee shapes are very sharp. No doubt this one was made when the mold was quite new. It's in very good condition - no chips or cracks. There is some glaze rubbing on the rim and a little molding flaw on the inner part of the spout - not a crack. I hope someone has the lid to this and will be delighted to find the base. I have been holding on to it for years hoping to get lucky with the lid, but it isn't to be. It's a great find for the right person. It measures 7 1/2 inches wide by 7 inches tall.
T&r Boote White Ironstone Low Fluted Compote, Apple Bowl
Here is a desirable piece, a fluted white ironstone low compote measuring 9 1/4 inches wide by 4 inches tall. Items such as this are also referred to as apple bowls. The fluting is evident both on the interior and exterior of the compote. The underside shows the pottery's backstamp. It is in good condition with two flakes to the underside the edge as pictured. These flaws are hard to find, evident if the piece is examined closely from the underside. It shows some utensil marks but has no other chips and has no cracks or restoration. The price reflects the flaws.
T&r Boote White Ironstone Sauce Tureen, Chinese Shape, C. 1858
The featured sauce tureen measures 8 1/2 inches long by 7 inches tall. It was made in the T&R Boote pottery. The shape, Chinese Shape, was registered in 1858. Note the scroll handles, ribbed design on lid and base, elaborate foliates, especially under the handles, and the great popping pod finial. This tureen is not marked. We can identify it my its shape, especially its finial which distinguishes it from a second pottery which produced the same shape. Condition is excellent - no flaws.
A set of eight(8) white ironstone Soup Bowls in the Corn & Oats shape. They are 9 3/4 inches D., 1 1/2 inches H. Ca. 1863. 4 are made by Wedgwood, 4 made by Davenport. Mint condition with no chips or hairlines. Excellent color and crisp detail. Price is for all 8. Nice to have as set this large.

Offered is a large white ironstone soup ladle measuring 4 inches across the bowl. The handle is 10 1/2 inches long. I believe this to be Gourd Shape. It was purchased with a white ironstone soup tureen of the same name which bears similar embossing. It is rare to find an imprint or back stamp on ladles. This one, true to form, does not have one. It would work well with many other soup tureen shapes. Condition is excellent - no flaws.
Large White Ironstone Soup Tureen Tray, Underplate, Cracker Tray
Offered here is a plain white ironstone cracker tray dating to the 1870 - 1900 period. One might also call it an oval platter with an interior ridge. It is designed to sit below a large soup tureen to catch any drips and to hold crackers for soup service. It was made in the pottery of Powell and Bishop and measures 15 by 11 1/2 inches. It is free of all flaws. This tray would work with many oval white ironstone soup tureens because of its plain shape. Its only detail is a bordered rim. In other offerings, this tray is shown paired with such tureens. It is offered separately from those items.
Large White Ironstone Soup Tureen, Gourd Shape, J. Edwards Pottery
This large white ironstone Staffordshire soup tureen measures 13 inches wide by 11 inches tall. It was made in the pottery of James Edwards and Son. It is entitled Gourd Shape, which was registered in 1855. A focus on the dramatic gourd finial is appropriate for the name because of its impact and size. Other embossing includes grapes and foliates. It bears the pottery's imprinted mark on the interior of the lid and on the underside of the base. We show it with a ladle of the same pattern in the first picture which is offered separately. It is in super condition with one tiny flake on the cut-out for the ladle. See the close-up. This is the only flaw. It is otherwise free of chips, cracks, hairlines and discoloring. One can see a pit which was done in the making on one picture. This is not considered damage. We have included a picture which shows it compared with a vegetable tureen of the same shape, also offered separately, to give the viewer a sense of its large size. Another picture shows it paired with an under tray, also called a cracker tray, which is not a pattern match but works well with it. The tray is also offered separately as well.

The white ironstone vegetable server presented dates to the 1860 decade. It was made in the Anthony Shaw pottery and bears the firm's backstamp. Measurements are 11 inches long by 6 1/2 inches tall.

There are no chips, cracks, hairlines, or other flaws.
Alcock Large White Ironstone Large Ladle, C. 1850 - 70

It is in great shape, free of chips, cracks, hairlines, and discoloration. It bears the graceful paddle shaped handle found on many of the Alcock pottery ladles. This ladle would work well with any white ironstone soup tureen. Both the shape the the color would be appropriate for antique white ironstone tureens. The final picture shows it with such a tureen which is offered separately. Little is known about the Richard Alcock pottery. We know that the pottery was succeeded by Wilkinson and Hulme who went out of business in 1885, so the Richard Alcock pottery preceded this date.
Meakin Wheat & Hops White Ironstone Soup Tureen, C. 1875
Offered is a large white ironstone soup tureen in the Wheat and Hops shape. The cracker tray measures 15 1/2 inches wide. Together, the three pieces stand 11 inches tall. It's a large and impressive three-piece set. Condition is excellent - no chips, cracks, or restoration. One of the stilt marks on the undertray shows a bit of minor discoloration. I mention this for accuracy. Wheat and Hops was one of the shapes from the 1860s and 1870s to celebrate the abundance of the American Bread Basket. I finds some disparity in dating this piece from my sources. One lists it as dating to 1875 while another sets a span from the 1860 to 1870 period. It makes a wonderful display, suitable for a table centerpiece or for the sideboard. It certainly is sturdy enough for actual use. The tureen base and the undertray both bear the transfer backstamp and the Meakin circular imprinted mark as well.

Early Staffordshire White Ironstone Tall Pitcher, Sydenham Type, C. 1850
This distinctive white ironstone tall pitcher measures 12 inches in height. It is unmarked. It has the Sydenham ogee shapes in a broad band on the side much as the design of Boote's 1851 shape. It also has draped leaf foliats under the spout, on the handle and under it at the top. There is no question that this is an early Staffordshire pitcher from the 1840 - 50 period; however, I cannot tell you exactly who made it or which of the Sydenham type shapes gives it a name because I cannot find the exact design in any of my reference books or online resources. I love to find something really old like this but undocumented. It is in excellent shape - no chips, cracks, or stains. There is glaze crazing. The color is the lovely white with blue undertones typical of the period.
Alcock White Ironstone Tall Pitcher, Jumbo, C. 1890
Here is a special offering: Alcock white ironstone ewer is Jumbo Shape. Usually the really unique white ironstone ewers or water pitchers date to the 1840 - 60 decades; however, this c. 1890 one is the exception because of its unique subject matter and great elephant embellishment. This design celebrats the famous circus elephant of Barnum and Bailey fame. Born in 1861, the elephant spent early life in zoos but was later sold to the circus where it was a huge success until its unfortunate death in a train accident. The pitcher shows images of what appear to be firework displays in addition to the elephant head embossing on the handle. It is marked with the Henry Alcock back stamp and is in excellent condition with no flaws. The pitcher measures a little over 12 inches tall.
Furnival Staffordshire White Ironstone Relish Dish, Rope & Ring, C. 1870 - 80
Here is a white ironstone relish dish measuring 8 1/2 inches long, 5 1/4 inches wide, but 2 tall. The shape is known as Rope and Ring or Cable and Ring, the decoration which graces the flat end. It is marked with the backstamp of the Thomas Furnival pottery and dates to the 1870 to 1880 period. I have had occasion to talk with experts who say that this shaped item is actually a ladle rest or spoon rest. Other experts disagree, asserting that all items of similar shape are relish dishes. One day, I will get to the bottom of this, but for now, I will include both in the description. It is in good shape, a couple of scuffs on the rim but no chips, cracks, stains, or repairs.

The plate is in great shape, no chips or cracks, and sharply molded.
Here is a Staffordshire white ironstone ladle in excellent condition - no chips, cracks, hairlines, stains, or repairs. It is unmarked. The bowl measures 2 3/4 inches across.

This ladle would work well with any white ironstone soup tureen. Both the shape the the color would be appropriate for antique white ironstone tureens. Little is known about the Richard Alcock pottery. We know that the pottery was succeeded by Wilkinson and Hulme who went out of business in 1885, so the Richard Alcock pottery preceded this date.

The Staffordshire white ironstone vegetable tureen presented measures 10 inches long by 6 inches tall, medium in size. Note the oversized rose finial with embossed bud and leaf designs.

Both a black transfer backstamp and an imprinted mark appear on the bottom of the base. Please note that we are also offering the same shape in a larger size. They would be fabulous together.

Here is a fun item for lovers of white ironstone. It is a complete teaset for six including six cups and saucers, six plates, a teapot, sugarbowl, creamer, and waste bowl. It is an unmarked set with signs of early potting. We would date it to the 1880s. Condition is remarkably good. It comes with a charming curved glass storage cabinet to keep little hands from playing with it unsupervised. More detail follows. The six plates measure 5 1/2 inches wide - no flaws on them. The six cups are 2 1/3 inches tall by 3 1/2 wide - no flaws. The saucers are 5 inches wide. All are flawless except one which has a small flake on the back. The creamer is 3 3/4 inches tall - no flaws. The sugarbowl is 4 3/4 inches tall. The base is free of flaws. The lid has a tiny ding and a flake on the edge. The teapot is 5 inches tall by 6 inches wide. It has two small flakes to the top and a tiny ding to the underside of the lid. The waste bowl is 3 1/2 by 2 2/3 - no flaws.

We will make those decisions to guarantee safe shipment at the best price.
Challinor White Ironstone Sauce Boat, Nosegay Shape, As Is
Offered is a Staffordshire white ironstone sauceboat in Nosegay Shape. It was made in the pottery of E. & C. Challinor. Condition is only fair with two tight hairlines, one on each side. It is still ok for display or for use. It's items like this that I use when I have children at the table. It measures 8 1/2 long by 4 1/2 tall. We have priced it attractively.
Early Staffordshire Gothic White Ironstone Sauceboat, Hairline
The gothic shaped white ironstone sauceboat presented measures 8 1/2 inches long by 6 inches tall. It is rather creamy in color rather than bluish. It bears in imprinted backstamp that can't be read. By the imprint's shape, we think it may be the Davenport pottery. This classic beauty dates to the 1840s when clean octagonal shapes were the vogue. It has a 1 inch stress hairline on the side. I will try to photograph it by natural light to show it. That is the only flaw. In my home, items like this are the workhorses of my table. I love to spread it with antiques, but when I sit down with the others, I want to enjoy the people without thinking about whether the children should pass the gravy. Problem solved. Given the flaw, I have priced it accordingly.
Edwards Cameo Gothic White Ironstone Sauce Tureen And Underplate
Presented is an impressive piece of white ironstone, a sauce tureen and underplate in the Cameo Gothic shape. It dates to 1847. All three pieces are in great shape, free of cracks, hairlines. The base has three tiny nibble to the edge, mentioned for accuracy. One must look hard to find them. The underside of the undertray has a little chip to the foot ring, see only if upended. I am not sure that the lid is original to the piece. At is not marked. However, it does fit and comes from the same period, 1840s, perhaps by a different potter. The tureen measures 7 1/2 by 7 1/2 inches. The undertray is 8 1/2 inches wide. Both the tureen base and underplate bear the John Edwards pottery backstamp. Embossing is very sharp. Note the interesting cameo face under the handle.

Elsmore & Forster White Ironstone Staffordshire Vegetable Server, Portland Shape, C. 1860
Here is a white ironstone vegetable server in a shape that is hard to find in white ironstone without lustre embellishment. This is Portland Shape. It is a beautiful piece with a remarkable finial in a trumpet blossom shape. It measures 12 inches long by 6 1/2 inches tall. The potter is Elsmore and Forster. This shape was registered at some time between 1855 and 1865. This one, beautiful as it is, has a flaw - a 2 inch area on the outer part of the base rim that is rough and has been painted. I suspect there was a chip there that was filled and painted. This in no way could be considered a true restoration. This piece is worth having professionally restored, especially since it is a single chip that does not affect the integrity of the vessel. There are no other chips, cracks, hairlines, or stains.
Staffordshire White Ironstone Relish Dish, J. G. Meakin, Plain Shape
This Meakin Plain Shape relish dish measures 8 1/2 inches long by 1 1/2 inches tall. It has some chipping underneath the foot ring and shows some glaze wear from use in the bottom of the well.

The classic design involves ogee shapes on the sides and domed lid. The finial is oval with a stylized flower on the top, a wonderful addition. Also of interest are the highly embossed handles. It is marked with the J. Wedgwood imprint. Condition is fair. The only flaw to mention falls somewhere between crazing lines and a hairline. It affects a small area of the rim and appears inside but doesn't penetrate to the outside. See the picture.
Large White Ironstone Vegetable Server, Memnon Shape, J. Meir & Son, C. 1857
The Staffordshire white ironstone vegetable tureen presented measures 13 inches long by 8 inches tall - large enough to be quite dramatic. Speaking of dramatic, the oversized rose finial with embossed bud and leaf designs beneath certainly fills the bill. This is Memnon Shape. This vessel was made in the pottery of John Meir and Son whose pottery operated in Tunstall. It dates to 1857. Both a black transfer backstamp and an imprinted mark appear on the bottom of the base. We love the looping design. It looks enough like Quartered Rose Shape to be confused with it. Condition is excellent - no chips, cracks, hairlines, stains, or restoration.
