Ale mug, 4.5 inches high by 4 inches in diameter.  This large mug has a black transfer of a deer print on one side and a hunting scene on the other side.  Condition is excellent, with no chips, cracks or repairs.  You could use the mug for its intended purpose, ale!  It is possible that the  mug was made in either Staffordshire or Sunderland around 1830.  Take a look at all of the photos for the details.  Teapot, 5.75 inches to the top of the finial and 9.75 inches from the handle to the spout.  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.  There must be some symbolism here!  The verse is a drinking rhyme, but not much drink would fit in this jug!  The dark orange print is over the glaze.  The jug is being sold as found.  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. The jug would make a wonderful Valentine's gift.  This mid-19th century English ironstone jug has a mulberry lustre design with a horse & rider in the middle of a floral design on the front & back, with a beautifully shaped handle & top.

Named and dated jugs are some of my favorite pieces of china.  This 7" pearlware jug is hand painted in pink lustre against a creamy ground with charming cottage scenes.  Under the spout, there is a heart which contains the name, place(Leek is a town in Staffordshire) and date of a child born in the early 19th century.  What a lovely gift for a newborn child!  Other than a repair (see photos for details) to the beautifully molded spout, condition is excellent with no other chips, cracks or restoration.  This is a rare item to add to a collection of jugs, lustreware, or early English ceramics.  The jug was made in Staffordshire in the early 19th century.  Printed in many shades of blue, green brown and red, this pot lid is entitled "Charity".  It is 5" in diameter.  There is a repair to one edge of the lid as well as some small nicks also on the edge.  Appearance is excellent.  The base appears to be the one that came with the lid. The pot lid was probably made in Staffordshire around 1860-1880.   This large pink luster jug is 8" to the top of the spout and 9" from the spout to the handle.  It is printed on one side with a view of the Iron Bridge in Sunderland, the "Sailor's Farewell" on the other side and another sailor's poem under the spout.  The jug is printed in black and painted over the glaze in pink lustre, green, and burnt orange. There has been restoration to the collar and the spout.  The restoration which is excellent was done before I owned the jug.  Appearance of the jug is wonderful.  Take a look at all of the photos for the details.  It is difficult to take good photos of shiny lustre so there is a lot of flash interference.  The jug was probably made in Staffordshire around 1840-1850  A 9" by 6-1/4" platter printed in blue and painted over 

the glaze with orange, yellow, pink and brown enamel.  

The platter was made in Staffordshire around 1830-

1840 by the Mason's Factory.  Other than a flaw in the 

glaze near the  small bird, condition is excellent.  The 

colors are bright with little to no wear and th print is 

clear and crisp.  The back is combed and has a buff 

ground on which is printed the Patent Ironstone China 

mark in black.  Take a look at all of the photos for the 









This lovely silver lustre pearlware teapot has wonderful detail.  It is finely molded with an arcaded rim and arches on the body.  Dipped in silver lustre which is actually platinum which doesn't tarnish, the pattern is covered in wax.  This process is known as resist as the wax and thus the pattern resist the lustre.   The spout has a few small chips and the finial has been reglued.  Other than very minor wear to the lustre, condition and appearance are excellent.  If you collect lustre, this is the piece for you!   The teapot was probably made in Staffordshire around 1820-1825.  What looks like black in some of the photos is actually silver!  This black printed pot lid has an art nouveau lily design around the word "carbolic".  I wonder what carbolic has to do with toothpaste.  However, the toothpaste was also good for the gums as well as the teeth.  The lid was made around 1890-1900.  Condition is excellent  A charming combination as well as a surprisingly modern combination of pink lustre and green stripes makes this porcelain cup and saucer unusual.  There are blue dots between the stripes.  Condition is excellent.  If you are a collector of either cups and saucers or lustre, this is the set for you!   This miniature Gaudy Welsh spill vase is 3-1/4" high and 2-1/2" at the top ( its widest point).  The pattern is Asian which decorates both the outside and the inner lip of the vase ( a building block design).  The vase is blue underglaze as well as orange, pink lustre and copper lustre.  Condition is excellent.  It was probably made in either Staffordshire or Wales between 1840 and 1860.








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.  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.  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.

Masons Ironstone Platter $850.00







This 4-1/2" Pratt pot lid was probably made between 1860 and 1880.  It is well printed in five colors and depicts a charming and sentimental Victorian scene although the little girl looks a bit too impish to suit most Victorian ideas of good little girls!  The lid has the title printed on the bottom and I assume Flora is either a diety or someone's mother!  Condition of the face of the lid is excellent with minor dings to where the rim would have sat in the pot.  This would be a great addition to either a Victorian or pot lid collection.  A large 4-1/4" Pratt pot lid beautifully printed in five colors of a charming Victorian scene of children and chicks.  The basket of roses is a lovely touch!  The condition of the print is excellent.  The rim of the lid where it would have sat in the base has small nibbles and discoloration.  This is one of my favorite lids and a nice addition to a pot lid or Victorian collection. The lid dates from 1860-1880. It does not come with a base.  A 2-1/2" by 1-1/2" pot lid and base that shows that even in the late 19th century there was not much truth in advertising!  The company promises removal of tartar and whitening of teeth just as toothpaste companies do today.  Other than a small nick on the rim and some staining, appearance of the lid is very good.  The base, which may not be the original, is in good condition.  A pearlware washbowl in the Chinese Trophies pattern made by Spode in Staffordshire around 1820.  The bowl is 14" in diameter and 5" high.  It is printed in blue and painted in a yellow/orange under the glaze.  It is magnificent.  However, it was smashed in shipping--I think it was used as a football!  The pieces were glued and stabilzed but the damage shows.  I have been using the bowl as a center piece and to hold potato chips or fruit. This is a rare item that can be had for a reasonable price.








This is a very large and impressive English ironstone platter in a rich floral pattern of deep blues, rose, orange, and gold.  It has a brownish gold rim, and it's in excellent condition, but it's only mark on the back is "Siva" which may be the name of the pattern.  It measures 21 1/2" wide x 18" high.
