ANTIQUE WHITE IRONSTONE PITCHER /BEADED HDL & BOWL SET
- Source: eBay
This wonderful antique white ironstone toilet water pitcher with embossed beaded handle and basin wash bowl are a married set from the late 1800's. The pitcher is marked on the bottom in black with four letters I can't read, TRADE MARK, a American sheild and a British sheild, STONE CHINA. According to Kovel's New Dictionary of Marks, the double sheild was used by several American and British makers in the late 1800's. The bowl is marked on the bottom SEMI, a crown & sheild, on a banner SCOTT, GRANITE which I think is for George Scott Pottery, Cincinnati, Ohio, that operated from 1846 - 1900. The pitcher measures apprx. 12 1/4" high 7 3/4" spout to thumbrest. The bowl measures apprx. 4 3/4" high 14 3/4" across. The set is in fairly good used condition. The bowl has generalized crazing with some discoloration. The pitcher has generalized fine crazing with a 1/2" light brown spot 1 1/2" under the rim of the spout with a 3 1/2" light brown spot under it on the same side. T is a tight 1" hairline on the side of the spout and a tight 1 1/4" hairline behind the spout with a shallow 1/4" glaze chip on the inside neck.
