Staffordshire Childs Miniature Pearlware Tea Set

ROMANTIC SCENERY

probably John Ridgway, Staffordshire England c 1830

This miniature child's tea service dates to circa 1830. The early transfer printed ironstone set has a London shape with moulded finials and handles and raised bases finished with pearlware glaze. Extremely well potted to the standards usually only seen in full-size Staffordshire table wares, the set is decorated in a light country blue Romantic scene of an imaginary faraway place, with a delicate Chinese inspired naturalistic border, capturing the influence of the Victorian love of nature and the exotic.

The set includes: • Teapot with lid, 3-3/4 inches tall, 6-1/2 inches long (chip inside lid, spoon dings inside inner rim) • Sugar with lid, 3-1/2 inches tall, 4-3/4 inches long long • Cream pitcher, 2-1/2 inches tall, 3-1/2 inches long • 4 round tea bowls/handleless cups, 1-3/4 inches tall (1 with hairline inside rim) • 4 saucers, 4 inches in diameter (1 with rim chip).

The set is unmarked. The pattern name and exact maker is unknown, however, the form is generally attributed to John Ridgway, a pottery maker in the Staffordshire region of England in the early 19th century.

The set in great condition with only the minor issues mentioned above and no other chips cracks or repairs. Some minor foot rim wear. Stilt marks and other typical manufacturing imperfections, original to the making. Offered as is, a fabulous little set to display in the finest dollhouse. Children's ironstone Romantic transfer printed ware of this quality is quite scarce and highly sought after.
