canary lustre 8 inch plare reverse 2

Canary lustre 8″ plate with bold hand painted floral design and  old staple repairs on back as shown. A rare survivor dating to the early 1800′s. In those days plates were highly prized  and carefully repaired whenever possible so as to continue in service. (CD-3)

Small mocha creamer. 3 3/4″ high, seaweed or dendritic pattern. Incised rings around neck with raised bands in dark brown slip. There are several small, tight lines on the interior rim which do not extend through to the outside and a tight line on the exterior base which doesn’t extend into the interior. Good bold color and fine glaze. Circa early 19th century. (CB-5)




Nice little Prattware creamer with whippet handle, stag hunting scene and Sunderland lustre embellishment. Tight spider/hairline on base extending partially up into body and tight hairline on lip that doesn’t appear to extend through into exterior. 4 1/2″ high. We believe this to be an uncommon piece.

“McDonough’s Victory” shell border 6 3/8″ plate in fine condition with only faint knife marks and one small firing mark. Good color and transfer. A very desirable historical blue pattern by Enoch Wood.


antiques 6-19-14 023

“Landing of Lafayette” 10 1/8″ plate by Clews. Bold deep blue color with good transfer. Couple of almost invisible knife marks. No chips, flakes or hairlines. Circa 1830 (red rim around plate is the top of a stool it was sitting on).


Very rare full size Gaudy Welsh wash bowl and pitcher.  Grape pattern with bold color and almost all overglaze paint and lustre intact. No chips, but it does have a piece glued in place next to spout (see photos) and seveal tight hairlines and spiders. The floral decoration on the bottom of the bowl is a different shade of blue but looks to be original. The damage is all easily restorable since it does not involve the decoration.  In many years of collecting Gaudy Welsh we have never seen another full size wash bowl and pitcher. English, circa 1840. In our personal collection for some 25 years. We’ve never seen another full size wash bowl and pitcher in Gaudy Welsh.
