Childs Transferware Pearlware 3pc Tureen

GREEK KEY

Probably Charles Meigh Staffordshire England c 1840

This is a fine miniature transfer printed sauce tureen with lid and underplate, made for childs play or dollhouse display. Originally part of a complete miniature toy dinner set, it is transfer printed in country blue with pearlware glaze. The form of the set indicates an early mid period of childrens pottery, c1840-1850. Well made, to the standards usually only found in full-size Staffordshire table wares, the tiny set is decorated with a Greek Key or classical Athens motif and a sawtooth beaded edge. The tureen stands on 4 bun feet, measuring 3-1/2 inches tall and 4-1/2 inches long with moulded handles and finial.

The set is unmarked except for an impressed numeral 3. The exact pattern name is unknown – we call it Athens or Greek Key based on other similar patterns from the same period. Based on the form and style of the blank, I would attribute the set to Charles Meigh, a well known pottery maker in the Staffordshire region of England from the period of 1820-1860.

The set is in great condition with no other chips cracks or repairs. A few smudges, dots of kiln dust and other typical firing imperfections, original to the making and typical of the period. A great little toy dinner set to display in the finest ceramic collection or dollhouse! The tiny pieces are doll sized works of art, suitable for use or play. Offered as is.
