Today we are happy to offer for sale a rare antique Fenton Stone Works ironstone ceramic pitcher! This wonderful pitcher is nicely crafted and detailed and was crafted by Fenton Stone Works, a division of C. J. Mason & Co. Just before the patent for their New Ironstone China was published in 1813, the Mason brothers bought the Fenton Stone Works from Sampson Bagnall. It had been previously let to Josiah Spode in 1805, but now it was run in tandem with the Masons' other works until their 1848 bankruptcy. The pitcher features a beige/cream-colored glazed ironstone ceramic body with low-relief decorations of birds on tree branches, with applied handle, and bespoke pewter top lid and spout trim. The piece features wonderful time-earned crackled patina on the glazing. Marked on the bottom "Fenton Stone Works C. J. M. & Co". Pitcher presents well and is in very good antique condition, with minor wear and patina commensurate with age. There is minor crazing to glaze and minor oxidation to pewter mount. This classic pitcher will make a fine addition to any antique American and English ironstone pottery collection. Fresh to the market from a Rhode Island estate!
