Rare Flow Blue

Childs 3pc Soup Tureen

HOPBERRY

Charles Meigh Staffordshire, England c1840

This is a very scarce miniature soup tureen with lid and tray made as part of a toy dinner service for childs play or to accessorize an elegant pre-Victorian dollhouse. The color is a brilliant flow blue against a creamy earthenware base, finished with pearlware glaze. The set stands 5 inches tall on a raised pedestal base. It measures 4-5/8 inches across; the tray measures 5-1/5 inches across. The lid has a spoon slot and the base has moulded handles and loop finial. Decorated with finely engraved brilliant blue hops or hopberries which look like oriental lanterns hanging from branches and vines. The pattern is shown in both a miniature dinner service and matching childs toy tea set in Lorraine Punchards Playtime Pottery and Porcelain from the UK.

The tureen was made by Charles Meigh, and esteemed pottery manufacturer in the Staffordshire pottery region of England in the early part of the 19th century. It is unmarked except for a numeral 10, probably a serial inventory number.

The set is in great condition with no chips cracks or repairs. Stilt marks grit glaze crazing and other minor imperfections typical of the period. An extremely hard to find flow blue pattern and form, a rare addition to an advanced collection of miniature transferware. A nice example from an early flow blue miniature dinner set. Offered as shown and as described.
