Rare Childs Hand Decorated Creamware 18pc Dinner Set

(probably Hackwood) Staffordshire, England 1800

This is a very rare miniature toy partial dinner service with plates, tureen, ladles and other serving pieces made for child’s play or to accessorize an elegant pre-Victorian dollhouse. The set is made of a creamy earthenware, hand painted with brushwork in lettuce green pink and mangenese or bittersweet enamel painted flower vines, a squash blossom finial with painted cabbage on the lid of the tureen, with bittersweet edges and pearlware glaze. Sometimes referred to as Leeds or Pratt decoration.

The set consists of miniature doll size:

· 1 lidded soup tureen, 3-1/2 inches tall and 4-1/2 inches long (nicks inside the lid)

· 1 gravy or sauceboat, 2 inches tall and 3 inches long

· 2 tiny ladles, 3 inches long

· 1 platter or meat plate, 3-5/8 inches long (short hairline, tiny glazed over back chip)

· 6 dinner plates, 2-3/4 inches in diameter (2 hairlines) and

· 6 luncheon plates, 2-1/2 inches in diameter (1 hairline).

The form is illustrated and described in Doris Lechler’s book “English Toy China” (fig. 207) and in Lorraine Punchard’s book “Playtime Pottery & Porcelain from the UK and US” (page 118) in the Abbey Ruins pattern. The set is unmarked but the blank form is attributed to Hackwood, a pottery manufacturer in the Staffordshire region of England. Wedgwood and other earlier manufactories also used this blank in earlier wares.

The set is in great condition as described above with no other chips cracks or repairs. Wear and flakes to the bittersweet painted rims. Glaze ponding and kiln dust, adding authenticity and charm. An extremely hard to find set, a perfect addition to an advanced collection of paint decorated, brushstroke creamware miniatures.
