Really Good Things

This is a great breakfast set decorated with a lovely Lily of the Valley design made in England by Johnson Brothers. It is marked “Old English” which refers to the nice ruffled edge pattern of the china rather than the name of the decoration and the “B” mark indicates it is from the Bursalem factory dating the set to around 1900. It consists of a 4 3/4” high, 2 1/2c teapot with lipped lid, a 8” plate with 5 7/8” x 2 3/4” domed cover with knob and a 4 1/2” high double egg cup with 3” and 2” diameter ends. The teapot’s ruffled rim, the lid’s lip and ruffled edge, the plate and the domed cover are perfect. To prevent any disappointments, we do need to identify the following areas of wear: use wear to the plates’ center decoration; the teapot has a very small nick on the bottom of the spout and a hairline (that does not leak) at the base; the egg cup has three 1/8” to 1/4” hairlines and four small nicks in the larger ruffled rim. Even so, we still consider the condition to be very good, and very useable. We have never seen this Lily of the Valley, or the domed plate in any other Johnson Brothers patterns, so they must be pretty unusual.
