Brand Wedgwood

Medium Wedgwood Etruria Transferware Creamer / Pitcher with Silver Overlay

Scenic Purple / Plum / Mulberry Transferware

From my personal collection, I am offering this creamer in the pattern entitled Ferrara from Wedgwood potteries. The scene features a stunning ship/port scene surrounded by a floral border of Blue Bells and Phlox.  It is trimmed in silver overlay. 

Ferrara is a port in northern Italy and Wedgwood had the design engraved in 1832. The sailing ships were copied from an engraving of Liverpool Docks, England. From the mid-1870's the pattern name was consistently printed on the back of the plates. “Ferrara” has only the one design, that of a border of smaller blooms (their Bluebell border) around the ship with the furled mainmast.

It is marked on the back : Ferrara Etruria England Wedgwood
It is also impressed with the following: 8A80 Wedgwood Made In England

Condition: no chips or cracks

Measures 3.75" high (I will be also listing two matching pitchers, one smaller 3" shown on left and one larger not shown...this is the medium size of 3)
