Here is one lovely, big pitcher in the long-loved Liberty Blue tableware from Staffordshire, England. If you enjoy this dinnerware pattern but do not have one of these large pitchers -- look no further !
IMPORTANT !! The small black 95-5 on the bottom is NOT a DATE code !! Production of Liberty Blue china ended in the late 1970s-! We believe "95-5" is a production code of some sort, and have seen other pieces marked similarly, but with different numbers - not 95.
Condition is lovely - beautifully clean and bright with NO cracks, chips, flakes or repairs. There is NO crazing that so often afflicts this ware. Even the spout is perfect with no signs of use. The only criticism we can find is that some of the mold marks may be a bit noticeable.
Presented in sharp, clear decoration in appealing shades of blue, the scene depicted on this piece is Old North Church, a beloved historic Boston landmark.
Height is just under 8 inches at the tip of its spout. It holds approximately 32 ounces (1 quart). The only other pitcher in Liberty Blue is the much smaller creamer that matches the sugar bowl.
The bottom markings are correct: MADE IN ENGLAND is impressed into the bottom, and an eagle holding a banner stating HISTORIC COLONIAL SCENES is in blue, above the scene title OLD NORTH CHURCH.
“Liberty Blue” chinaware was first manufactured in 1975 by Enoch Wedgwood in the Staffordshire District of England, to commemorate the 1776-1976 bicentennial celebration of the United States. Many different pieces of Liberty Blue were made, each with a different historical scene depicting colonial America. Its appealing deep blue color on brilliant white, with incredibly detailed artwork, reminds one of traditional English Staffordshire china of the 19th century. This ware was exceedingly popular when it was first introduced, and its desirability has remained very strong among collectors.
