Antique Steel Blue Transferware Covered Tureen Casserole Chrysanthemum with RARE Silver Overlay Spatterware Circa 1891


Brand George Jones & Sons

Circa 1891
Antique, Steel Blue colored transfer ware lidded tureen with an unusual steel blue color and rare spattered silver overlay. These earthenware / ironstone pieces feature pretty chrysanthemums at either side.

It is marked only with the country of origin on the back, however George Jones produced this same pattern so I believe they are attributable to him. The company began operation in c.1864 at Stoke Upon Trent at the Trent Potteries Works as George Jones and in 1873 became George Jones & Sons Ltd. They produced gorgeous majolica and earthen wares.
In 1907 the works was renamed Crescent Potteries.
George Jones died in 1893.

Measures: 12" handle to handle x 7" x 5.5" to top of lid
