Antique Historical Dark Blue Transfer Printed

Staffordshire Sugar Bowl

A Rare Pattern


James & Ralph Clews, Stoke-upon-Trent c. 1828-1835


A Staffordshire Historical Dark Blue Transfer Printed Sugar Bowl in the 'STATES ' Pattern made in the 1820's.  A beautiful deep dark blue, this pattern is also known as the 'America and Independence Series'.  The pattern always has the ribbon motif bearing the names of the original 15 states around the borders, but the centers have a variety of different views along with the portrait of Washington.

A rare item to be found in this early pattern it was made by James & Ralph Clews, Cobridge, Stoke-upon-Trent, Staffordshire England circa 1828-1835.


 A collectors label remains on the underside of the base and the lid.  We put an ultraviolet light on this and it does fluoresce, so it has had professional restoration in it's past 180 + years.  It has been reglazed, one side of the bowl and the lid have a slight uneven feel to the texture of the surface. There are no visible cracks, chips or hairlines.  Still displays handsomely.

Size:  7-3/4" across the handles - 5-5/8" high - 4-1/2" wide

A very pretty piece of antique Historical Dark Blue Transferware in a very collectible pattern!
