Here are the popular Crinoline Ladies on a Sugar and Creamer in the Pompadour pattern by Lord Nelson Ware. Pompadour is an allover gold floral chintz motif framing a romantic scene of a seated colonial lady in her billowing layers of yellow crinoline skirt. Her outer gown is a lovely plum purple with all the requisite ruffles and laces, and her white pompadour hair is piled high on her head. A tree of green is at her back, and an iron bench is beside her. The background features a watercolor-like country home, garden, and sundial. The back of each piece is decorated with a multicolor floral spray of purples, blues, yellows, and greens.
The creamer measures 2-1/2 inches wide across the top, nearly 4-inches across the handle and spout, and 3-inches tall. The round foot is 2-1/4 inches in diameter. The matching sugar measures 3-1/8 inches across the opening, and 2-1/8 inches tall.
Lord Nelson Ware was a trade name used by Elijah Cotton Ltd., England, circa the 1930s to the 1950s. Both pieces are stamped in black under the glaze "BCM/Nelson Ware made in England" topped by a gold circle reading “Lord Nelson Ware Made In England” followed by the pattern name “Pompadour.”
There is heavy, non-discolored crazing and a small dark mark just inside the rim of the creamer, but other than minor wear on the gold consistent with use, there are no other condition issues.
