19th Century English Pottery - Lustreware, Pearlware, Creamware

Circa 1800-35

The early part of the 19th century is a very rich time for English, Welsh, and Scottish Pottery. Hundreds of potters were busy producing decorative and functional wares for the exploding population.

Many of these wares were mass-produced and marketed to the ordinary working family. High quality tableware and decorative items were made for the more aspiring and affluent middle and upper classes. Large country homes and elegant town houses occupied by the new industrialists, financiers and rural elite who wishes to impress bought fine examples of pottery from the classic potters of the time such as Spode, Davenport, Masons, Mayer, Wedgwood, Herculaneum, Don and countless other factories.

Underglaze blue and white transferware was very popular and much produced by numerous factories often illustrating idyllic rural scenes and romantic ruins in foreign lands.

New techniques such as items decorated in lustre were introduced and one of our specialisation’s is pink and silver lustre objects from the circa 1820/35 period. These pieces can form a stunning assemblage and are often used by interior designers to create a statement in a room.

The pink splash lustre decorated pitchers are made in the North East of England in the Newcastle and Sunderland area. The silver lustre ware was produced mainly in Staffordshire and Yorkshire. Some fine examples also came from the famous Dillwyn and Glamorgan Potteries in South Wales.
