Ironstone Ladle with Importer's Mark

This ironstone soup ladle from the 1840's, and what makes it a bit unusual is that it is marked for the importer, Wm. Everhart of West Chester (Pennsylvania). A Google search turned up the information that he was rather successful in his enterprises during the early 19th century.

As to the ladle itself, the brown transfer pattern is "Belvoir" by Joseph Heath (as shown in Williams "Staffordshire: Romantic Transfer Patterns").

Size: Approximately 12" long, bowl diameter 4.25"

Condition: Good. Chip where handle attaches to bowl, glaze wear at other end of handle. No other chips, cracks or repairs.

Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
