A very early (c. 1810-1820) and rare Staffordshire Cow Creamer with Chinoiserie transfer, and wafer thin base with a molded flower and the original lid. These early cow creamers are rare and not to be mistaken for the later, “clunkier” Victorian imitations. The decoration is in the “3 Men on a Bridge” pattern. It measures about 7” from the nose to the tail, and the base is 3 1/8” x 5 ¼”. Height to the top of the horns is 5 ¼”.

The creamer comes out of a Boston-area collection and is in excellent condition: no chips,cracks, lines, or restorations. (Finding these without restored horns or tail is a feat in itself!) The color is strong and the molded base well-defined! The original underglaze color around the mouth, ears/horns and udder is strong as well. Hand written note taped to the bottom indicates possibly a Swansea origin.
