Unmarked Red Cliff Grape Octagon White Ironstone Soup Ladle, 12” Long, Ca. 1950s

Description

Welcome to this listing. We are very pleased to offer this gorgeous white ironstone soup ladle in a Grape Octagon body style. It is 12” long and has a 4” diameter bowl with a v-shaped pour spout, which makes this ladle very desirable for use. While this ladle is not marked, we have seen its cousins in soup tureens manufactured by Red-Cliff, an American china-decorating firm of the 1950s to 1960, founded by Fred Clifford. The firm was known for its white ironstone and Tea Leaf ironstone reproductions of 19th century English ironstone body styles.

This gorgeous ladle has a gleaming white glaze and very heavy embossment on the handle. It is free of chips, cracks, hairlines, discoloration, and restoration. There are two ¼” glaze flakes on the underside of the bowl. Crazing, which is common to ironstone, is present.

This large soup ladle would make a great addition to any white ironstone soup tureen of either the 19th or 20th century.
