In 1883 two brothers, Alfred and Frederick Johnson, purchased a defunct pottery known as the Charles Street Works in Hanley, England. By the end of the 1890's Johnson Brothers may have been the largest earthenware manufacturer in the world. The "Mongolia" Flow Blue pattern, circa 1890 - 1910, reflects the oriental influence of the period with a central motif of peacocks in a beautiful oriental garden with borders of floral and geometric design. The shape is a plain smooth rim. In this group the saucers are 5 5/8" across and the cup is 3 1/2" across and 2 1/4" deep. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. The saucers are stamped "Mongolia - Crown Mark - Johnson Bros. - England". The cup is unmarked. A beautiful and rare Flow Blue pattern.
