Rare Silver Overlay Rural Scenes Poly Brown Transferware Sugar Bowl & Creamer
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 and creamer from Royal Staffordshire 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! They are 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.
Sugar bowl is 3 3/4" x 2 3/4" tall Creamer is 5" handle to spout x 3.25" tall
Condition: Excellent, no chips or cracks, little crazing. Glaze pop inside sugar bowl. Looks to be unused
*last 3 photos are of some other silver overlay with green glaze pieces by this same potter. They are being listed separately.
