Childs Cobalt Flow Blue Transferware Tea Set
Copeland late Spode Stoke-on-Trent England c 1880

This is a stunning mint condition child's earthenware dollhouse tea set, transfer printed in a brilliant cobalt flow blue. The set is decorated with a parade of random domestic animals and wild critters covering the exterior of all the pieces. The animals include a deer rooster goat donkey duck goose squirrel cow dogs horse pig cat fox pheasant wolf quail turkey dogs, to name a few. The ultimate zoological guide and teaching tool on ceramic! Impeccably designed and boldly decorated to inspire the imagination of every child. This delectable pattern is featured in Playtime Porcelain and Pottery by Lorraine Punchard, English Toy China by Doris Lechler, and Gifts for Good Children Part II by Maureen Batkin. The whimsical transfers each measure about 1 inch in size.

The set is comprised of:
▪ Teapot with lid, 4-1/2 inches tall;
▪ Sugar box with lid, 3-1/2 inches inches tall;
▪ Creamer or milk jug, 2-1/2 inches tall;
▪ Waste bowl, 2-1/2 inches tall, 4-1/4 inches across top rim;
▪ Cake plate, 5 inches square with tab handles;
▪ 6 cups, 1-3/4 inches tall with London handles; and
▪ 6 saucers, 4-1/2 inches across.

The tea set is marked variously with a transfer printed and impressed ‘W T Copeland and Sons’ and "Copeland late Spode Stoke on Trent England" dating to the 1880-90s. The set was made in Stoke in the Staffordshire region of England. It is of the highest quality transferware, suitable for adult tastes and standards.

The set is in  mint  condition with a flea bite on the edge of one cup and no other chips, cracks or repairs. Stilt marks and typical minor firing imperfections. The set is earthy and uniquely charming naive a quirky and playful piece that would have been treasured by a lucky child over 100 years ago! Offered as is.

Children's folk art transferware of this quality is quite scarce and this pattern is especially rare and sought after. This delicious little set will make a special addition to any collection of children's wares, and makes a perfect gift to a veterinarian , farmer, zoologist , dog trainer or other animal lover!
