Late 1800's Edward Clarke Tunstall English White Ironstone Tall Pitcher Gorgeous
SALE ANTIQUE 1800'S TALL WHITE IRONSTONE PITCHER ENGLISH CLARKE/TUNSTALL!
What a gorgeous Antique English white ironstone tall pitcher this is, bearing the Edward Clarke of Tunstall, England marking from 1865-1877. Those dates are according to the potters' listing in the book: WHITE IRONSTONE: A COLLECTOR'S GUIDE by Jean Wetherbee. This beautiful pitcher has a wonderful decoration in the front as well as at the base of the handle which very much reminds me of a Fleur de Lis design. Some might call it a tulip, but upside down, it does so remind me of the fleur de lis.
Tall, sleek and beautiful, this pitcher/ewer is in Near Mint condition! Looking at the pitcher with the handle to your right, if you look left of the handle, you can see a hairline visible to the inside and out, BUT it appears to be under the glaze and has not weakened the pitcher at all as far as I can tell. The finish is a shiny white, slicker in places than others. I'm not sure if the firing was different in spots, because some is smoother to the feel, but looking at it, you can't tell any difference.
I have a love for white ironstone pitchers, and absolutely would not hesitate to add this to my collection at all! It is a stunning antique piece, and unusual to find this pattern that is affordable for my wallet anyway. I love it!
The pitcher is app. 11 3/4" tall to the sides of the spout, and perhaps more like 11 1/2" at the handle side. You will not be disappointed to add this piece of fine English Ironstone to your collection of pottery!
I am always happy to combine purchases to save you on shipping, IF IT IS SAFE TO MAIL TOGETHER. It would just depend on what you wanted mailed with this. At any rate, I will use lots of bubble wrap and packing materials to make sure it arrives at your door safely! I know how disappointing it is to receive something that rattles before you even open the box, because it happened to me yesterday. This will be carefully packed as I would want to receive it myself.
Thanks so much for shopping with me, and God Bless You! May we honor Him in all we say and do!
