Here we have a charming Old Cottage Chintz cream and open sugar set in the Ascot form with square tops and tapering sides, entirely covered with brilliant flowers over a “pebbled” background. Both pieces are generously highlighted with gold enamel.
The sugar bowl measures 2 3/16” tall x 2 ¾” square. The cream pitcher is 4 ½” from spout to end of handle x 2 3/8” tall. Both measure 1 ½” square at the base. They are signed in green with Royal Winton forming a circle around Grimwades and Made in England. This set was made between the early ‘30s and 1960.
There is light crazing as is expected on old chintz, a few stray kiln grains in the bottom of the pitcher, and a small 1/8" by 3/16" chip on the open sugar bowl. This chip can be seen in the first photo of the set, on the right front corner of the sugar bowl. Price reflects condition.
Antique and vintage porcelain, pottery, glass, collectibles and, of course, knick-knacks too!
We always have plenty of beautiful, interesting, decorative, whimsical, and just plain cool stuff! Enjoy browsing!
