T.G.&F. Booth square platter

This amazing 8-3/4" square heavy brown transferware platter is over 113 years old! The main pattern contains several shades of brown, but some of the leaves are yellow, and the flowers are blue. The back has a crown hallmark and says “Parisian Granite, Rosaline Pattern, T.G.&F. Booth, England.” Thomas Gimbert and Fred Booth manufactured earthenware at the Church (Bank) works in Turnstall, Stoke-on-Trent, England from 1883-1891. There are no chips, cracks, or crazing, but there are a few discolored spots on the front and a lot of discoloration on the back, not surprising when you consider the age of this platter.

Florence Cook pitcher

This attractive little vintage pitcher has a dark beige base, pretty fruit and leaf designs on each side in shades of brown with raised white dots, and a dark brown handle and rim.

The bottom is marked “Florence Cook Pottery Co.” It is in nearly perfect condition, with no chips, cracks, or discoloration.

East Liverpool Potteries pitcher

This beautiful antique white ironstone water pitcher with elaborate top and handle undoubtedly started its life as part of a washstand set whose basin has long since been lost. It is 11" tall, 7-1/4" x 8-1/4" at its widest point, and 4-1/4" x 5" at its scalloped base. The bottom is marked “East Liverpool Potteries Co”, which dates it to 1901-1907, the period during which East Liverpool Potteries Co. was one of the myriad of potteries in East Liverpool, Ohio, the “Pottery Capital of the World”. It is in amazing condition. The outside has no chips, cracks, crazing, or discoloration, and only a few tiny manufacturer’s blemishes. The inside also has a few tiny manufacturer’s blemishes, plus some use scratches at the midsection and a hairline crack at the bottom. Certainly a very large and impressive piece to add to your collection. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Set of 6 Ch Field Haviland bread & butter plates

This lovely set of 6 Ch Field Haviland bread & butter plates feature a delicate rose swag around the perimeter topped by a double gilded border at the rim. I have been unable to determine the name of this pattern, but based on the three marks on the back of the plates, my educated guess is that the pattern was produced some time between 1941 and 1968. The three marks are: Ch Field Haviland Limoges, GDA France, and Fabrique pour Emery Bird Thayer, Kansas City, Mo.

Charles Field Haviland emigrated from America to Limoges in the early 1850s to work for his uncle, David Haviland, founder of Haviland and Company. He later rented a porcelain factory  in partnership with his father and brother, and ultimately opened his own decorating studio and porcelain manufacturing company in 1868. He married the granddaughter of Francois Alluaud and took control of the Alluaud porcelain factory, one of the oldest Limoges factories. Charles Field retired in 1881 and the company became known as Gerard, Dufraisseix and Morel using the mark GDM. The partners changed around 1890 and the company was subsequently called - Gerard and Dufraisseix and eventually Gerard, Dufraisseix and Abbot. The GDA France mark is Mark C-5 and has been used since 1900.

Ch Field Haviland is the decorating mark of Robert Haviland and C. Parlon and has been used since 1941 when it was purchased from a company called Gerard, Dufraisseix and Abbot, which was derived from the original Charles Field Haviland company. Robert Haviland was the grandson of Charles Field Haviland.

The words “Fabrique pour Emery Bird Thayer, Kansas City, Mo.” mean that these plates were produced for Emery Bird Thayer, an historic department store in Kansas City that opened in the 1860s and closed in 1968.

These plates are 6-1/4" in diameter, gently taper to a 4" base, and are not quite 3/4" deep. All are in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, crazing, or loss of gold. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Haviland & Co. Limoges serving platter

This stunning huge, heavy Limoges serving platter measures 18-1/2" x 12-1/2" x 2" deep and has an exceptionally pleasing all-over pattern of flowers, leaves, and stems, all done in shades of brown, gray, and grayish-blue. While basically rectangular in shape, all four sides are slightly concave and all four corners are curved and incised at the middle of the curve. There is a 1/4" “lip” around the entire piece. One mark on the back, in green, is the Haviland “doughnut” with curved lettering: Haviland & Co. in the top half and Limoges in the bottom half. Underneath this, in a deep green/black, is the underlined H&Co, with the”o” elevated and a dot underneath it, and an L underneath the line. These marks indicate that this platter dates from 1875-1882. There is also a very faint 18F indentation in the corner to the right of the two green marks. I have crawled all over the web looking for this pattern, without success. Not even Schleiger has it listed! The closest I’ve come is a smaller (12-1/2" x 8-1/4" x 2" deep) platter in the similar Old Blackberry Sch. #1154 pattern, with the exact same two backmarks. That piece is dated to 1870-80. Our platter is in extraordinarily good condition: no chips, cracks, crazing, or discoloration on the front. There are a couple of tiny stray paint flecks underneath the glaze and a tiny brown indentation, also under the glaze, at the base of the incision point on one of the corners. On the back, both the inner and outer base show minor wear and discoloration, and there’s another of those tiny brown indentations in the corner to the left of the two green marks.

Theodore Haviland Limoges meat platter

This beautiful large, heavy Theodore Haviland Limoges oval meat platter measures 15-1/2" x 12-1/2" and has a gravy dip at one end. The pattern, identified as Schleiger 169A, is quite subtle as compared to most Haviland patterns: pure white with an elegant green and maroon border, more geometric than floral, and gold banding. The red Theodore Haviland mark on the back (with the Theodore underlined) and also stating “Limoges, France” dates this piece to 1903-1920. It is in astounding condition: no chips, cracks, crazing, or discoloration, and it’s doubtful this platter was ever used for anything other than display. Even the gold banding is pristine! There is one tiny brown, slightly raised, blemish speck about 3" to the upper left of the gravy dip that you can feel with your finger tip and which apparently happened at the factory since it is under the glaze. There is also a tiny 1/4" hairline scratch about 4" to the bottom left of the gravy dip that you can’t see without a lot of wiggling to get the lighting just right, but can feel with your finger tip.

Hix miniature bone china tea cup

This is a beautiful little bone china tea cup, very old, very fragile, undoubtedly hand painted, and so thin you can see through it! It’s rather fluted in shape, with vertical green bands with gold trim at each flute indentation. Between these are an alternating design of purple and gold flowers and white and gold flowers. Each floral design is topped by a gold shell. Additional gold adorns the rim, base, and all three sides of the fancy handle. The cup stands 2-1/2" high with a 2-1/2" diameter scalloped rim and 1-3/8" diameter round base. There is an artist’s signature on the bottom that looks like “Ron Hix”, but the letters are so stylized that it’s difficult to tell. No chips or crazing, but two tiny flyspecks inside and a very faint hairline crack on the bottom. An outstanding display piece. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Ironstone China pitcher

This elegantly simple white ironstone pitcher is 9-1/4" tall, 5-3/4" x 6-3/4" at its widest point, and 4-1/8" x 4-3/4" at its oval base. The mark on the bottom consists of two inward-facing lions holding a crown-topped shield containing an elaborate “S”. Above the mark are the words “Ironstone China”, with the words “Extra Quality” below. Undoubtedly this is some form of English Staffordshire pottery dating to the Victorian era. There are no chips or cracks. Because of its age, the vertical lines where the 2-piece mold went together are now brownish, with a brown craze line running off the lip mold line, and a smaller brown craze line on the back. There is slight brownish discoloration underneath the lip, and the normal 2-3 pinprick manufacturer’s blemishes. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Johnson Bros. Geneva octagonal platter

This beautiful large (11" x 14") octagonal platter is in the very hard-to-find Geneva pattern. Less “busy” than most of the other Johnson Bros. blue-and-white patterns, Geneva has a border of spoked hexagons on the four concave sides and fruit in the four concave corners. Both the inside and outside of this border are banded in mustard yellow. In the center of the platter is a wetlands scene featuring two stylized cranes, the left one in flight and the right one standing. The back is marked with a blue crown, with “Geneva” above and “Johnson Bros. England” below. According to Kovels, this mark was used in the early 1900's. There is also a blue “6", another little blue mark, and two small mustard yellow lines. This platter is in excellent condition: no chips, cracks, crazing, discoloration, or signs of wear. There is one tiny stray paint fleck under the glaze about 3/4" from the bottom border and one pinpick manufacturer’s blemish, also under the glaze, about 5/8" from the lower right corner. Even the back shows no sign of wear, although there are three more pinprick manufacturer’s blemishes. Be sure to see our matching octagonal covered vegetable bowl and gravy boat with attached underplate, either of which looks stunning when displayed on this platter. What incredible additions to your Johnson Bros. collection! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Johnson Bros. Geneva octagonal lidded vegetable

This lovely octagonal vegetable bowl with handles and a lid is in the very hard-to-find Geneva pattern. Less “busy” than most of the other Johnson Bros. blue-and-white patterns, both the bowl and lid have a border of alternating spoked hexagons and fruit. On the lid, this border is banded on both sides in mustard yellow; on the bowl, the mustard yellow bands are on the top of the handles, the bottom of the spoked hexagon portions of the border, and the bottom of the white bowl itself. The lid has additional vertical mustard yellow bands on the finial top, which is surrounded by a wetlands scene featuring two stylized cranes, the left one in flight and the right one standing. The bowl has a round bottom 4-1/4" in diameter which grows into an octagon that is 8-1/2" in diameter at its widest point. The measurement from handle to handle is 10". The bowl is 2-3/4" tall, and when lidded, 5-1/2" tall to the top of the acorn finial. The bowl bottom is marked with a blue crown, with “Geneva” above and “Johnson Bros. England” below. According to Kovels, this mark was used in the early 1900's. There is another blue mark, as well as a mustard yellow one that looks like an “H” lying on its side. Both the bowl and the lid are in excellent condition: no chips, cracks, crazing, discoloration, or signs of wear. The bowl has a pinprick manufacturer’s blemish on the under side of one handle, and two similar blemishes on the under side of the other handle. The lid has three similar blemishes on the underside of its rim. This is a gorgeous piece by itself, and looks positively stunning when displayed as a set on our matching large platter listed immediately above. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Johnson Bros. Geneva gravy boat w/ attached octagonal underplate

This handsome double-lipped gravy boat with attached octagonal underplate is in the very hard-to-find Geneva pattern. Less “busy” than most of the other Johnson Bros blue-and-white patterns, the 6" x 9" underplate has a border of alternating spoked hexagons and fruit, with a mustard yellow band on both the inside and outside of the border. There is a matching border around the middle of the gravy boat, with the mustard yellow banding only at the bottom of the spoked hexagon portions. The top edge of the gravy boat, which is 3-5/8" x 7-3/4", has a mustard yellow band, beneath which is a single row of the spoked hexagons. There’s no wetlands scene with two stylized cranes as appears on the matching platter and lidded vegetable bowl listed immediately above. This piece is 2-3/4" high at the center, rising to 3-1/2" at each lip. The bottom of the underplate is marked with a blue crown, with “Geneva” above and “Johnson Bros. England” below. According to Kovels, this mark was used in the early 1900's. This piece is in very good condition, with no cracks, crazing, or discoloration. However, it is not perfect. There is a piprick manufacturer’s blemish on the inside bottom of the bowl, two small chips on the underside of one of the lips, and one even smaller chip on the underside of one of the plate edges. Our price reflects the chips; if perfect, this piece would sell for considerably more. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.
