Victorian Copper Lusterware Teapot Creamer Eagle Handle
A rare find for the Victorian Lusterware collector! This set of 19th Century Copper Lusterware by Charles Allerton & Sons Longton England. (c1890-1910) is in superb condition. The photos just do not do this set justice. This set came to us from a local estate and was kept behind glass for it's entire life. It does not look it was used. Both pieces are without chips, cracks, flakes or repairs. The luster is bright and clean as is the gorgeous blue transfer decoration. There is slight darkening in spots of the luster from age but for pieces this early the condition is the best we've ever seen. We note one glaze skip in the luster creamer which you will not find unless you are looking for it - this is from manufacturing not flaw. We did not submerge or try to clean these pieces, we simply wiped them down. Any dark spots seen in the photos are reflections from our camera. The luster is so bright it like a mirror!
The teapot is smaller in size, appearing to be a 2 cup teapot. It measures 7 3/4" across from handle to spout and stands 5 1/2" tall including the lid. It has the best figural eagle handle. The cream pitcher is larger in size than most creamers. It stands 4 3/4" tall and measures 5 1/2" from handle to spout.
A gorgeous set for the collector and makes for splendid Victorian decor.
