Alfred Meakin Ironstone China "Moss Rose" Pattern Pin Tray
Alfred Meakin Ltd was set up in 1875 and operated from the Royal Albert, Victoria and Highgate Potteries in Tunstall. Alfred Meakin died in 1904 and was succeeded by his son Alfred James who died only four years later. Alfred John's uncle Robert Johnson bought the company for his son Stuart Johnson and it stayed in the Johnson family's hands until 1976 when it became Myott-Meakin before becoming part of the Churchill Group.
This lovely Alfred Meakin ironstone china pin tray, circa 1880's, features a large, red moss blossom and opening bud, brown moss and leaves with sprigs of accenting small medium blue leaves. The pin tray measures 5 1/2" in length, 4" in width and some remaining gold trim. It is stamped with the Meakin company logo and "Royal Ironstone China - Alfred Meakin - England"; this mark was used from 1875-1897 when "Ltd." was added to the mark. There are no cracks, chips or repairs.
