This lovely London shaped teapot is hand-painted with information about the artist.  Her name, date of birth and dwelling place are on one side of the teapot and a selection from the Bible is on the other side.  Although the teapot shows the date of Elizabeth Phillipson's birth, 1804, the teapot was probably decorated around 1820, perhaps for a special birthday, engagement or wedding. The teapot is in as found antique condition.  There is a chunk missing from a corner of the lid, a hairline in the handle and chips on the side of the spout.  Still, the teapot looks beautiful.  Take a look at all of the photos for the details.  Jug, 4 inches.  The pattern has a charming cupid print on one side and a verse on the other.  Cupid is ready to stab a beehive with an arrow.

The spout has been glued back on and there is wear (heavy) to the rim.  There are also small chips to both the rim and the base.  Appearance, however, is quite good.  The pattern is rare and delightful.  The jug was probably made around 1820-1830 in Staffordshire.  Take a look at all of the photos for the details.

A Brief History of Royal Dux

The factory was founded in 1853 and located in the Austrian town of dux now known as duchcov located north West of Prague in Czech Republic.

The factory operated for a few years using raw materials from its surroundings producing utility ceramic‘s. In 1860 Eduard Eichler a experienced model-drawer turned the factory into E.Eichler Thonwaren-Fabrik. The company produced mainly terracotta, faience and majolica the designs were based on pieces from Copenhagen, Worcester and Sevres. In 1862 he also bought a small factory in Selty near Ceska Lipa. In 1878 the Eichler firm was awarded Silver Medal at the exhibition in Paris.

Edward Eichler suffered a heart attack and died on January 1st 1887, his wife ‘Marie Amalie and his son Anton Franz Eichler took over ownership of the company.

The private company still owned by the Eichler’s changed into a stock-holding company which in 1898 became to be known as Duxer Porzellan - Manufaktur, A-G with the main office in Berlin. The factory in Selty was liquidated . This new company then bought a porcelain factory (Porzellanfabrik Fasold & Eichel) in Blankenheim (Thuringia) near Weimar. The factory now started to produce porcelain, and also the traditional pieces. 

In 1900 the well known mark was used a pink triangle with ROYAL DUX BOHEMIA around an acorn. Beneath the acorn there is an E which stands for Eichler (acorn is used because Eichel means acorn).In the early 1900’s thanks to modeller Alois Hampel the factory was awarded the Grand Prix prize at the world exhibition in St Louis in 1904 and the silver medal at Milano in 1906 and the gold medal at the exhibition in Liberec, Bohemia. 

At this period the company employed 500 workers and the facility had five round kilns and seventeen muffle kilns as well as its own steam and power plant. Representatives were stationed in cities around Europe which was a solid base for international trade as products were mainly exported and the company had trade connections with all Europe, Russia, and even North America. The success of the company was disrupted by the First World War(1914-1918). Due to financial difficulties in 1918 the factory in Blankenheim Germany was sold. 

Due to financial difficulties the factory in Blankenhain had to be sold in 1918. From 1918 Bohemia, was joined with Moravia and Austrian Silesia to form the country Czechoslovakia which remained until December 31st 1992. 

Due to the import and export laws (agreement of 1891) whereby all exports must state their country of origin, so in 1918 the Made in Czechoslovakia mark was stamped on pieces. 

During the period between the two world wars the company’s production was low. However the company still managed to produce figurative and decorative porcelain based on already existing successful moulds.  This is a set of 10 English Chamberlain's Worcester ironstone plates in a beautiful floral pattern with deep cobalt blue, rust, ivory & gold.

Beautiful 12 piece porcelain plate set with "La Fayette College" designs.

This large 8" pearlware jug is unusual as it has a chinoiserie pattern printed in black and painted over in blue, green, orange and pink lustre.  There is also a wonderful stylized flower painted in pink lustre under the spout.  The pattern is the same on both sides.  There is a large crack that meanders under the spout from one side to the other that has been stabilized.  There are also cracks on the bottom that do not go through to the inside.  This sounds terrible but appearance is excellent.  The jug was made in Staffordshire somewhere between 1820 and 1830.  An 7" pearlware jug printed in purple with the young Victoria and Albert.  The couple are in a reserve surrounded by blue which is decorated with copper lustre.  The rim, handle and beautifully molded spout are decorated with pink lustre.  The handle is a confection of swirls and spurs.  The jug has restoration to the rim but it is so well done I can't remember where it is!  There is wear to the pink lustre on the rim and spout.  Appearance is excellent.  The piece was probably made in Staffordshire around 1840 probably to commemorate the marriage of Victoria and Albert.    This is yet another lovely Gaudy Welsh pattern.  The delicate flowers seem to swirl around the saucer and cup in shades of orange, green, and lustre over underglaze blue.  The pattern number on the back appears to be 64.  The condition of this circa 1840-1860 cup and saucer is excellent.  They were probably made in either Wales or Staffordshire.  Drape is a richly colored pattern.  The shades of orange, green and lustre are painted over two shades of underglaze blue.  The actual "drape" looks a bit like a stylized spider web to me.  This is a truly luscious pattern!  The pattern number on the back is 1102.  Condition of this circa 1840-1860 cup and saucer is excellent.








Urn is a very cheerful Gaudy Welsh pattern.  It is comprised of a large urn filled with big colorful flowers and leaves that seems to float out of it.  The colors are shades of orange, green and lustre over blue underglaze.  The pattern number on the back is 502.  There is wear to the lustre on the cup as well as a small, very tight hairline.  Condition overall is excellent.  The set was made in either Staffordshire or Wales between 1840 and 1860.  This is a lovely Gaudy Welsh pattern that seems to have no name.  If you know it, please tell me.  The pattern is delicately painted in pinks, orange, green and lustre over a blue underglaze.  Other than glaze wear to some of the lustre on the rim, condition of this 8-1/4" plate is very good.  The plate was probably made in either Staffordshire or Wales between 1840 and 1860.  This 7-3/4" cake or biscuit plate is in the popular Sunflower Gaudy Welsh pattern.  The colors are orange, green and shades of pink and copper lustre over blue underglaze.  Other than minor green loss in the "grass" area, condition is very good.  The plate was probably made in either Staffordshire or Wales between 1840 and 1860.  The Gaudy Welsh Venus pattern is highly decorated in green, orange, two shades of pink and lustre over blue underglaze. Condition of this cup and saucer is excellent.  They were probably made in either Staffordshire or Wales between 1840 and 1860.








This Masons ironstone teapot was made in Staffordshire around 1840.  It is printed in blue and colored in orange, green and gold.  I particularly like the way the handle has gold fish scales along its blue length.  The pot stands 6-1/2" to the top of the finial and nearly 10" from the handle to the spout.  The pot appears in excellent condition but there may be a repair to the tip of the spout.  The pattern number on the bottom is "9873" and there is also a "B" and an "F".The Masons mark is printed in black.   A 3" high by 3" wide gaudy welsh mug in the lovely Forget-Me-Not pattern.  The pearlware glaze suggests an early manufacture date of 1830 to 1840.  The colors are orange, blue and mint green as well as pink and copper lustre.  The piece is beautifully molded and condition is excellent with no chips, cracks or repairs. I was told the mug was made in Swansea, Wales.  This 7-1/4" high gaudy welsh jug in the Llanelly Poppy pattern is large and colorful.  It is 8-1/4" from handle to spout.  It is well molded and the colors are blue, orange and green with copper and pink lustre detail.  Condition is good with only a one inch hairline where the handle meets to body of the jug, minor wear on the handle and the spout and a small chip on the handle.  This sounds worse than it is but I'm trying to be accurate in describing blemishes. The jug was probably made is Swansea, Wales in 1840.  This is an English Masons ironstone jug in the Heron pattern of dark blue, rust, lighter blue, green and cream.  The jug is marked "Fenton Stone Works" in a blue border with the number 311 below that.  Godden estimates the age at circa 1824.  The jug has crazing and some wear on the handle, but it's in perfect condition.

This is a large English Masons ironstone platter in the Prunus Bush pattern with soft shades of yellow, pink, green, orange, peach, blue and brown.  It's in excellent condition, and measures 21 inches x 16 1/2 inches.   Circa 1835    A wonderful play on the expression "A pretty kettle of fish"!  The dogs have been fighting and have knocked over a kettle of fish. Two of the dogs are scalded. And, both we and the dogs realize that their owners will be angry.  This is an excellent scene from Victorian country life which will appeal to those of you who like animals and those of you who enjoy Victorian interiors.  The condition of the face of the lid appears excellent.  There is a chip under the rim and three small chip on the rim where the lid would fit in the pot.  The lid dates from about 1860.  A 4-1/4" Pratt pot lid of a dog saving a sheep from freezing to death in a snow drift.  The lid is beautifully printed with great attention to detail.  The fur of the dog and the wool of the sheep are so realistic that you almost feel as if you could touch the animals. Other than some age crackling, the lid appears to be in excellent condition. It dates from the mid nineteenth century.    These are odd looking bears!  They vaguely resemble wolves.  But, the lid is from a series that includes different bear scenes.  I assume the pot held bear grease.  Other than staining on the back of the lid, condition appears to be excellent.  The lid dates from around 1860.
