Sampson and Bridgwood Victorian Staffordshire Tea Set Teapot Sugar Creamer
Very stylish English Antique three piece white earthenware tea set including a teapot, covered sugar and creamer. The pieces are large with lots of gold gilt decorations. There are applied handles and the teapot and sugar finial are decorated with some kind of a fruit that I think might be a fig. The gold decorations are flowing and the two covers have a decorative fig? finial. All the pieces are marked on the bottom. The teapot is marked "SB & Son". The sugar bowl and creamer are both marked "S. Bridgwood & Son". This beautiful set dates from the 3rd quarter of the 19th C. and was made in the Staffordshire district of England. Free continental USA shipping. I will refund the new Ruby Lane "Service Fee" from your purchase after payment.
Teapot - Height - 9".
Sugar bowl - height - 6 3/4".
Creamer - height - 5 1/2".
Condition: There are two what I believe are firing cracks in the teapot. The largest runs up from the top of the spout and there is another smaller one on the side of the spout. (See last photo). Neither go through to the inside. There is a tiny chip or flake on the interior top rim of the sugar bowl. There is some light wear to the gold trim. There is some light crazing to the glaze and there is some light staining in some small places if you look closely. All in all a very good condition antique set that is very pretty and ready to be used.

Established c.1795 in Lane End at the market Street Works.
In 1805 the firm is listed as Samuel Bridgwood and Son, earthenware manufacturers. In 1818 Maria Bridgwood and Kitty Bridgwood & Son are listed separately as earthenware manufacturers in Market Street. Later the works passed to Sampson Bridgwood who continued the business in Market Street and then in Stafford Street - the works were later demolished to make way for Longton covered market. Sampson Bridgwood then took over the Anchor Pottery (at the corner of Wharf and Goddard Street) in 1853 where bone china and later, earthenware was made. Sampson Bridgwood died in 1876.The business continued although the Bridgwood family were no longer involved, in 1890 John Gerrard Aynsley took over the business - the name Bridgwood & Son continued to be used. The company became a Limited company c.1933. Bridgwood & Son continued until the 1990's when it was subsumed into Churchill China PLC.
