J.W. Pankhurst white stone china lidded pot

Presented here for the serious antique lover is this very old, very rare, and amazingly well preserved 2-handled lidded pot from J.W. Pankhurst. It is 5-1/4" tall (7-1/4" tall with lid), 4-1/8" in diameter at its mouth, 5" in diameter at its widest point, and 3-1/2" in diameter at its base. Based on its size, I’m assuming it’s a biscuit jar, but it could be something else entirely. Was it meant to be a honey pot? A mustard pot? A jam pot? Even a small cookie jar? Who knows what use its maker envisioned for it when he created it some time between 1850 and 1852 at either the Charles Street Works or the Old Hall Street Works, both in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, England. The bottom carries the Pankhurst mark, under which are three lines of text: “Stone China,” “J. W. Pankhurst,” and “Hanley”. Note that the name is “J. W. Pankhurst,” not “J. W. Pankhurst & Co.” The “& Co.” was added in 1852 and continued to be used until Pankhurst went bankrupt 30 years later, selling out to Johnson Bros. in 1882.. There is also an indented potter’s mark that you can barely feel, and certainly can’t read. There is a Greek key design around the widest portion of the pot and a large leaf at each of the four points where the two ornate handles were applied. The lid also has a Greek key design below its finial top that looks like an acorn or a flower bud, complete with stem and leaves. The entire piece is bluish-white in color, although there is enough yellowing on the handles and the bud finial to make me wonder if they were originally gilded in gold that has long since worn away. On the other hand, maybe this is just normal age discoloration. I’ll leave it to your judgment. Whatever this beautiful little pot’s history, it must have been well loved by its series of owners, because it has managed to survive for over 160 years without one nick, chip, or crack on the pot, and only two tiny nicks on the bottom of the lid’s inside ring. The whole piece still glistens, both inside and out! There are a few tiny stray “age spots” on the pot, and its base and lip show discoloration, as does the base of the lid. Sure wish this one could talk – imagine the tales it could tell! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Redwing Capistrano dinner plate

This is one of the classic Capistrano plates issued by Redwing in 1953, the company’s 75th anniversary. It shows a black and yellow swallow in flight above fruit and leaves done in shades of purple, orange, green, yellow, red, and gray. This plate is 10-7/8" in diameter and has the Redwing mark on the back. It is in near-perfect condition: no cracks or crazing. There are two little nicks on the underside of the bottom rim, probably from the display stand in which it must have stood for many years, and some minor discoloration at the edge of the top rim. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Romania bowl

This is an attractive vintage black Bohemian bowl with a very pleasing shape. It stands 4-1/2" high and its diameters are 4-1/4" at the mouth, 6-1/2" at the widest point, and 3-5/8" at the base. Narrow incised bands encircle the mouth area and repeat at the widest point of the bowl, above which is a circle of small decorative indentations. The bottom is incised “Romania” in script, and there are two additional sets of incised marks, one that looks like two backward N’s and a 6, and the other that looks like a backward Z and an 8, with an I underneath. No chips or cracks, but wear scuffs inside, plus a mark on the interior bottom that looks like a semicircular crack, but isn’t. It’s completely smooth to the touch.

Royal Austria teapot

This exquisite little pure white teapot is marked on its bottom with a green laurel wreath with “Royal” in the center, “O.&E.G.” above, and “Austria” below. This is the mark of Oscar & Edgar Guntherz that was used between 1899-1918. The teapot stands 2-1/2" high by itself and 3" high when lidded. It is 3-1/8" in diameter at its base, 2-3/4" in diameter at its mouth, and 7" across from spout to handle. With no cracks, crazing, or discoloration, this little beauty’s only flaws are one tiny chip at the edge of its spout and an even tinier chip at the edge of its rim. It’s highly unusual to find one of these delicate old teapots in such superb condition and with an intact lid! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Royal China Blue Willow saucer

This is one of Royal China Company’s classic Blue Willow saucers. The pattern was introduced around 1948 and the dinnerware was often given away in grocery stores and/or sold at substantially reduced prices. There are many different elements to this dark blue oriental design including pagodas, ships, a bridge, waving banners, trees, flying birds, and cross-slated fences, all with a chintz border. Gay Fad enthusiasts will be interested to know that this pattern was the inspiration for Gay Fad’s own Blue Willow design that created in 1951 as a go-along for the Royal China dinnerware. Our saucer is 6-3/8" in diameter, tapering to a 3-2/4" cup ring. Surprisingly, the back is unmarked, but there’s no mistaking this Royal China Blue Willow pattern. Saucer is in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or crazing. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Royal Ironstone China wash bowl

This antique white ironstone bowl with a lovely scalloped edge undoubtedly started its life as part of a washstand set, and has marks showing where a 3-footed pitcher must have stood inside it for many years. This bowl is 3-1/4" high, 10-1/4" in diameter at the top, and 5-1/8" in diameter at its base. Although the actual maker is unknown, it bears a “Royal Ironstone China” mark that was used by both English/Staffordshire and American pottery companies. It is also marked “Warranted”, which English and American potteries used in the 1890's as part of the company name (English) or a description of the company (American). This bowl was obviously well used but must also have been well loved since, amazingly enough, it has no cracks. There are definite discoloration areas both inside and out. Still, considering its obvious age and usage, this bowl is ready to serve another loving owner for many more years, especially if that new owner has a 3-footed pitcher looking for its long-lost mate!

Steubenville Woodfield platter

This vintage Steubenville Woodfield platter is basically round and 13-1/2" in diameter, but the pretty Tropic Green leaf pattern produces a scalloped edge. The back is marked “Woodfield; Mfg. By Steubenville”. The Steubenville Pottery operated from 1879 to 1959, and the Woodfield line was produced in the 1940's. This platter is in mint condition: no cracks, chips, crazing, discoloration, or signs of wear. The back has a white mark on the base and three whitish glaze pops, possibly from the plate holder where it must have been displayed for many years. (Click on picture for more images.)

Pair of Warwick “Monk” pitchers

How extraordinary! Here is a pair of the famous Warwick monk pitchers (also called friar pitchers, cleric pitchers, or cardinal pitchers). On one of them,  the jolly monk (maybe he really is a cardinal based on his red hat) faces right, toward the pitcher’s handle, and he is definitely hand-painted, not a decal. The pitcher is 7-5/8" tall, 8-3/4" from spout to handle, and 6-1/4" in diameter at its base. There are no cracks, crazing, or discoloration, but the base and rim show some wear and there’s a tiny white pinprick at the left edge of the monk’s cowl. On the other pitcher (which is exactly the same size, shape, and color), this jolly monk/cardinal faces left, away from the pitcher’s handle, and he also is definitely hand-painted. This is probably the older of the two pitchers based on the discoloration inside and on the bottom, which also has some crazing and two old hairline cracks that do not go through to the inside. Surprisingly enough, however, this pitcher shows less wear at its base and gold rim than its counterpart. Quoting from the Kovels: “Warwick china was made in Wheeling, WV, in a pottery working from 1887 to 1951. Many pieces were made with hand painted or decal decorations. The most familiar Warwick has a shaded brown background. The name Warwick is part of the mark and sometimes the mysterious word IOGA is also included.” An article by Vanessa Orr in the February 2003 Antique Trader throws additional light on the IOGA: “Some of the earliest pieces of Warwick China, created between 1900 and 1914, are stamped with the initials ‘IOGA’. They are highly prized among collectors.” The bottom of one of our pitchers has the Warwick mark and the IOGA, although the “I” is nearly worn away. It also says M. 36 in red. The bottom of the other pitcher has only the M. 36. Unlike the newer Warwick pitchers featuring a shiny glaze, shading that goes from dark brown to beige and back to dark brown, and a dark brown handle, our antique pitchers have more of a matte glaze and their bodies and handles shade from dark brown at the bottom to beige at the top, with a gold rim. We know for a fact that these two antique monk pitchers have been together for well over 60 years, so the monks have become fast friends and we’re not about to split them up now!
