Affordable Early 19th Century Hand Painted English Porcelain
About Regency Ceramics
Our Service Pledge To You:
I guarantee the authenticity of the items I sell. I disclose any damage or restoration and try and describe condition objectively - if anything I over emphasize minor wear on items that were made to be used and not for display. Very little of what I sell was originally intended for life in a display cabinet.
A selection of fine English Antique Porcelain from c.1780 to c.1840 and Antique Blue and White Transfer Printed Pottery and Ironstone from a Similar Period.
This was the period when decoration was all hand applied. Most porcelain was painted, often exquisitely, entirely by hand and gilded again by hand. Even those patterns decorated with transfers had them prepared and applied by hand, and when new were more expensive than some painted patterns. This quality of decoration, carried out by artists and artisans, would be prohibitively expensive to produce today
Transferware likewise was all hand applied. Sometimes enriched by additional enamelling and gilding, again all hand applied.
I normally have antique items from the major late 18th Century and early 19th Century manufacturers such as Coalport, Caughley, Davenport, Masons, New Hall, Spode, Rockingham, Worcester, and some of the interesting lesser known quality manufacturers such as Bourne, Daniel and Yates. If you are looking for something specific, please ask. I also have a few selected later items.
I guarantee the authenticity of the items I sell. I disclose any damage or restoration and describe the condition objectively - but please bear in mind my items are generally 150-200 years old and were made to differing manufacturing standards to modern items. Odd pinpricks and spots of kiln dirt in the glaze and other minor manufacturing flaws are not uncommon – I can only mention those that are most noticeable. Most items of this age show a little wear - evidence of their past life - they were after all made to be used and not to sit in cabinets.
I am always pleased to clarify any points on the condition of an item.
I am based in the Midlands in the UK. Increased security on mail to the United States means that around 2 weeks for delivery of an airmail parcel is now normal at non-peak times.
Prices are in Sterling (GBP) the exchange rate typically varies between £1=$1.60 and £1=1.65. The Paypal website will tell you the actual rate they use for currency exchange.
I am happy to combine postage on items where it will offer a saving and the items can be packed together safely.
