Beginning in the 1840's, English potters began to ship white ironstone ceramic ware to the U.S., decorated with copper lustre bands and/or simple motifs, made exclusively for the American market. Anthony Shaw is considered to have produced the original tea leaf motif, registered in 1856. The tea leaf motif was made by dozens of English and American potters until the beginning of the 20th century.

This ironstone tea leaf covered sugar bowl was made by the Mellor, Taylor Company, England, circa 1880-1904. Unique handles and lid finial with copper lustre decoration. It measures 6 1/4" in height, 4 1/4" in width and 6" from handle-to-handle. There are no cracks or repairs; several minor chips on the inside edge of bowl and lid (see photos).
