This is an English sugar and creamer, unmarked, probably Staffordshire, and a soft paste porcelain or pottery. Pearlware is creamware, but with the hand painted decoration under a white glaze. Or whiteware. Or China glaze. The date is probably the first half of the 1800s, but circa 1850.
The pieces are not marked. The maker may be Wedgwood as this company produced similar blue border patterns.
The border decorations and lines are hand painted in blue under the glaze.
The mold is quite pretty with raised lines in the pottery.
The sugar is 4 ¼” high to the top of the finial, 6 ¾” handle-to-handle, and 3” wide. The cream pitcher is 2 7/8” high, 5 ½” from spout-to-handle, and 2 3/8” wide.
There is a light crazing and difficult to see. There are some small bumps in the glaze. There are no chips, nicks, or cracks. There are a few tiny brown specks on the finial.
