Antique Early Staffordshire Blue And White Transferware Salt PAIR Doll Size Circa 1810 AF
These wonderful and VERY scarce oval salt cellars were produced in England at the beginning of the 19th century, circa 1810. The blue and white transfer printed pattern features a farmer stood resting on a fence with an open gate, the pattern is variation of the “Village Church” pattern. This is an unusual variation of the pattern; a salt cellar in this pattern is also highly uncommon. The pattern is part of the “Wild Rose” border series. There small dimensions would allow them to be used as a platter or fruit bowl for your very special antique doll. See our images with a standard thimble used for scale purposes.
Measuring: 3.75” (9.5 cm) by 2.75” (7 cm). Height 7/8” (2 cm).
Condition: Both items will display excellently. There is natural crazing throughout and some kiln dust; as seen on our images one of the salts has an old chip to the rim and a vertical hairline which runs from the rim down to the base. The remaining salt has three small chips to the rim. There are early pieces of pottery and are uncommon, they are the perfect item for anyone who collects English transferware.
