Vintage Royal Crownford Staffordshire England
Transferware Ironstone Pitcher & Basin
Red Multi-Color Floral Charlotte Pattern
Up for auction is a vintage 2-piece Royal Crownford Staffordshire English Pitcher and Basin Ironstone pottery in the Charlotte pattern. This set probably dates to around the 1930's from what I have read.
These pieces have a multi-color red, green and yellow Transferware floral design on a cream glaze background. T is a floral design is on the front and back of the pitcher but they are not exact matches and the red Transferware is also on the handle of the pitcher. The basin has a floral design on the inside of the bowl and on the outside - again the inside and outside design has some differences. (Please see the photos below). This really is a beautiful set!
The bottom of the pitcher and the basin are marked " Charlotte - Royal Crownford - Staffordshire - England ". The pitcher also has the number "30" incised on the bottom.
This will make a beautiful addition to your collection or home décor. This set displays very well!

The pitcher measures approximately 7" tall and is 7" wide from handle to spout. The mouth opening is about 5-1/4" by 3-1/4" wide. The base is approximately 3-3/4" wide.
The basin measures 9-5/8" wide from rim to rim and is about 2-1/4" tall. The base of the basin is 4-5/8" wide.
Both of these pieces are in overall good condition. The both have some crazing throughout due to their age. The pitcher has no major cracks or chips that I can see. The basin also has no major chips but it does have a very fine hairline crack which is very difficult to see - especially with the cream color.
Please be sure you are ok with the condition mentioned above before you bid as I want a happy buyer. If you have any questions at all regarding this please contact me before bidding.
