This is a nice Gaudy Welsh salt with shaker with metal top and is in very nice condition with no cracks or chips. Most Gaudy Welsh isn't Welsh. The style began in Wales, but it was mostly manufactured in the numerous potteries of Staffordshire in England. from 1820 to 1850. Gaudy Welsh was relatively inexpensive porcelain aimed at ordinary families. Its colors were based on Japanese Imari china. Decorations were mostly floral with the cobalt and deep orange red colors. Makers rarely added their names on the back. The style became hugely popular in America. Ironically, it is now more plentiful in the USA than in the UK.
