Carlton Ware Walking Ware Rare Tropical or Island Running Egg Cup Designed by Roger Michell (Lustre Pottery) for Carltonware
This auction is for a Carlton Ware Walking Ware Tropical (or sometimes called Island, Caribbean, Hawaiian, even Jamaican!) egg cup, in the running posture instead of just walking, and wearing yellow shoes and terrific island jams. It is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, or restoration. I could NOT even find any of the usual Walking Ware crazing! It is marked to the base with the Carlton Ware Lustre Pottery Backstamp "Carlton Ware - England - Lustre Pottery,"but the word "Pottery" and the date are illegible on the mark. (Please note that any overly white spots are reflections from our photographic lights.) Please see the photos below and consider them to be a part of the description. Thanks!
This lovely egg cup, in WONDERFUL condition, is offered with NO RESERVE, so take advantage of the LOW starting bid!
We have lots of other Carlton Ware and Walking Ware items (including a GORGEOUS matching mug/cup!) , either up for auction or in our store (many at Buy it Now or Best Offer prices) and more to come in the next couple of weeks, so please take a moment to have a look and add us to your favorite sellers or, better yet, sign up for our Store Newsletter. We are always happy to combine shipping and will do our best to save you money!
As always, if you have questions or need additional photos, please send us an eBay message and we will do our best to accommodate you.
If possible, please give 24 hours to answer questions, as we've got 'real world' jobs and can't always be at our computers.
Thanks so much for your visit. :)
