Vintage Green Transferware English Staffordshire Ironstone Nesting Hen Lidded Egg Basket Tureen Floral Toile Charlotte


Brand Crown Devon

I've just acquired an absolutely charming set of vintage, English chicken egg storage containers, aka hen on nest.   This hen on nest is a rare transferware one.   It was made by England's Crown Devon and is a nice white ironstone  with a crisp green transfer in the Charlotte pattern:  a basket filled with freshly cut flowers.  These transferware hen on nests are some of the rarest of hen on nests because most are pressed glass or a glazed or painted earthenware / ironstone.  They look wonderful setting out on your counter, for storing eggs, trinkets or etc.  I use mine to hold our corn on cob holders.



Measures:  appx 9" across x 7" wide x 9" tall at tallest point


Condition:  small chip to inside rim of base.  This only shows if you take the lid off and isn’t too bad regardless.
