Antique Flow Blue Copper Luster Earthenware Pottery Pitcher Creamer Charles Allerton Sons Victoriana
This antique flow blue copper luster small pitcher or large creamer is a fabulous example of English earthenware pottery. This Victorian era pitcher by Charles Allerton & Sons (Stoke-On-Kent, England) has a gorgeous band of incised florals at the top and bottom with beaded trim work. The flow blue is bright but has that almost steamy look you only see on the oldest pieces. The center has a vine of tulips which is on both sides of the piece. This is one of those pieces you can not take your eyes off of. It is really great looking. The copper luster (lustre) is generous and in Very Good ++ condition for it's age. The Allerton's hallmark dates this from 1891-1917 but I believe this is definitely on the earlier end of that date.
This flow piece stands 6 1/4" tall and measures 5 1/2" from handle to spout. It has a 3 1/2" opening at the top. The base is marked with the earliest Charles Allerton & Sons mark (see photo). Condition is Very Good+. We give it an 8.5 out 10 for condition. No chips, cracks, flakes or repairs. There is heavy crazy with little to no discoloration on the body and medium discoloration on the inside and bottom of the pitcher. The copper Luster is 95% Good which is is incredible for it's age.
This is a treasure of piece for the flow blue, copper luster or earthenware pottery collector. For decorative purposes is FANTASTIC and we can see it with many decors including you Blue and White decors, Victorian, Farmhouse, Cottage and French Country. We also like copper luster with Rose Gold Decors.
