Wm. Adams and Sons English White Ironstone Tall Wheat Pitcher Ewer
SALE Here's a beautiful example of a tall English White Ironstone Wheat Pitcher or Ewer produced by Wm. Adams and Sons. I love the shape with the more bulbous and widely ribbed design at the bottom, and the raised wheat design at the top. The spout almost comes to a rounded off point with some scallops around the top, and a beautiful handle with a raised thumb rest at the top. Measuring between 11 1/4" and possibly a little taller at the spout, and just about 10 1/2" to the top of the handle, it has that tiny all over crazing look that I love, but it all appears to be under the glaze. This came as part of a pitcher and bowl set, but I have a tendency to just display the pitchers in my ironstone collection, so this listing is just for the pitcher. I'm not even sure I still have the bowl, as my sister loves those, and sometimes I keep the pitcher and give her the bowls.
No chips, cracks or breaks, and it is well marked on the bottom. I find the Adams Ironstone, although still white, is not "quite" as white as some of the other white ironstone from England and America, but it all mixes well together. Many people would never even realize the difference in color, but as a collector, I can pick out the pitchers in my cupboards that are Adams from the Meakin and other English and American potters. If you love tall white ironstone pitchers, you are going to love adding this one to your collection, or perhaps you are just starting your own with this being your very first pitcher! I bought it for a little less, so can sell for a little less, but this one is a beauty!
I am always happy to combine purchases to save you on shipping, so please be sure to let me know if you are interested in other items I have listed. This may have to come in an oversized box, because I will use lots of packing materials to make sure it travels safely, and because of its height, it may require a larger box. I will list with Priority or Standard Parcel Select shipping, but if you would like for me to check on FEDEX, I would be happy to do so, and will do my best to get you the best shipping quote.
Thanks so much for shopping with me, and God Bless You! May we honor Him in all we say and do!
