Rare Silver Overlay Pastoral Davenport Rural Scenes Poly Brown Transferware Sugar Bowl Tea Caddy
Brand AJ Wilkinson
VERY Rare Silver Overlay Sugar Bowl and Creamer Set
BROWN POLYCHROME TRANSFER WARE
Royal Staffordshire Rural Scenes / Pastoral Davenport by AJ Wilkinson / Clarice Cliff Dinnerware
For consideration is this scenic sugar bowl or tea caddy from Royal Staffordshire / A J Wilkinson depicting rural farm scenes and cottages with cows, chickens, etc. The border is one of my favorites, being a mix of farming implements including a rake, hoe, shovel and bee skep mixed with lattice, ivy and berries.
The brown transfer is hand painted in shades of green and burgundy, all under glaze so it is permanent. There is a silver overlay design around the inner rim/wall of the piece and around the scene itself. The glaze has a greenish hue. These are VERY RARE and hard to find! It's a wonderful, wonderful addition to any transferware collector, but especially to those of you who collect this pattern. I seldom come across the pieces with the silver overlay.
Measures Sugar bowl is 6.25" handle to handle x 3.5" tall with lid in place
A small piece of the finial on the lid has been repaired I did not notice this until after I'd listed it. It really is hard to see and doesn't detract at all from this being displayed or used. I have discounted it by 33.33% due to the flaw
