Consider this vintage Tookie Bird wash set from Regal Ware of England to add a little whimsy and cheer to your guest room, Bed and Breakfast, or Victorian boudoir. The birds are a colorful concoction of yellow, blue and red (although some may call it orange) who are congregated among branches and seem to look about with a Who, me? expression on their face. The Pitcher and Bowl set is full sized, with the pitcher measuring 12.5 inches high to the top of the spout, 10.25 inches long from spout to handle and 6.6 inches in diameter, while the bowl is 15.5 inches in diameter and 5 3/8 inches high. Both pieces are in good condition with no chips or cracks just expected wear to the gold highlighting in places, minimal wear to the Tookies, and age crazing and light use scratches on the bottom of the bowl. Both pieces are marked Regal Ware R.P. Co., Made in England on the bottom indicating they were made by the Regal Pottery Company of Stoke-on-Trent between 1925 and 1931. An unusual set that's both fabulous, fun and functional.
