Early Staffordshire Lustre Creamer Pitcher

       

       

What a great little creamer pitcher! Pearlware body decorated with black printed transfer of Masonic related symbolism and Free Mason's Arms inscription. A poem is on the other side framed with a floral motif and a family scene (father, mother, child) on the top. Wonderful vivid hand painted polychrome enamels enhance the decoration. A beautiful King's Rose type border decoration with brick red painted line details. Pink luster trims the lovely scalloped top rim.  Lovely blue tinted pearlware glaze. The condition is excellent.  Appearance is perfect.  Wear to luster trim which is consist with age and use.  A small potting flaw (imbedded piece of dirt) on the side by the handle -- just one of those charming little imperfections of this type of early hand made pottery.  Not marked.  Dates to circa 1820.  Size: 4 3/4" tall by 6" lip to handle.
