Mid-Size Ironstone Pitcher by “W & J Butterfield” England, Circa 1855

$ 385
  • Description
    Nice example of an ironstone pitcher, hand painted from copper plate transfers in the Chinese Manduran pattern depicting peacocks and abundant floral decoration in a Famille Rose style (see image). Design was made popular by Mason's company, albeit, this pitcher was manufactured by W &. J Butterfield of Tunstall, England in the northern most district of what is now Stoke-On-Trent, and was one of England's leading pottery and porcelain mecca’s ( see marking on the underneath). The pitcher is quite early, having been made circa 1855. There is floral decoration to the inside upper lip in addition to the nicely shaped handle. There are no cracks or chips; there is some paint loss to the top rust colored edging.. Gentle age crazing appears through out attesting to it’s nearly 165 year old manufacture; a very nice piece of early English ironstone.
