An antique ironstone chamber set featuring an Art Nouveau botanical pattern that looks almost Grecian with leafy pillars and swirls. A chain of hearts decorate the rims of each piece. The cobalt blue color is still very vibrant attesting to the quality. The set includes a very large hot water ewer, a chamber pot, a three piece soap dish and a toothbrush vase.
The hallmark tells us that this was made by T.C. Brown-Westhead, Moore & Co. pottery in Staffordshire, England. Based on the mold and some research, we believe this particular set was manufactured around 1890. The Cauldon factory, as it was later known, manufactured high end Ironstone and is well known for quality. This particular pattern name is Teutonic.
The pitcher is very large at 10.25" high, 7.5" wide to edge of handle and 30" in circumference at the widest area. The chamber pot is 5 3/8" high, 7.5" widest to edge of handle. The toothbrush vase is 5.5" high and has drainage holes in the bottom. The three piece soap dish is overall 3.5" high. This consists of a bottom dish, an drainage insert and a lid.
There looks to be a separation line on the bottom of the chamber pot handle. This is age related; the handle itself has never been broken. One tiny flake on the rim of soap dish cover is all we could find showing any use of these pieces.
SELLER'S NOTE: Because there are many pieces to this set, we will be packing and shipping in two boxes to protect the integrity and condition.
