By some English scenes became available as transfer designs. After the Napoleonic Wars, in , there was a trade boom and European scenes and subjects were in vogue. Pieces made for export to America were often very dark blue, and some had patriotic subjects.

The sepia color Dresden Flowers teapot is circa It has a flanged rim with a well-fitting recessed lid. The vegetable bowl, also in sepia, is Souveneir and dates Both of these little treasures are perfect in the scale doll house. These plates in graduated sizes are also Dresden Flowers like the teapot above. This transfer is moss green, though this pattern has not been recorded as available in green. These soft paste plates are not a recorded pattern, though they have the characteristics of toy Staffordshire. This green collection shows some breaks and blurring to the transfers, which is typical, as these were considered as play dishes and were meant to be inexpensive toys.

The finials are two nobs that look like hops berries. This lovely Lavender Leaf partial dinner set has recently joined my collection. I love how well made it is. The transfer pattern is clear and sharp, the deep lavender blue color is superb, and the little dishes are even and not too heavy. It dates to and is doll sized. Staffordshire has been home to well known potteries such as Wedgwood, Copeland, and Ridgway, as well as to hundreds of small firms that have come and gone through the years.
The variety and patterns available for antique toy Staffordshire dishes are too numerous to document—more are being discovered now, and several that I have shown you here are not in the reference books. These two child sized collections are displayed in a small cabinet. The top shelf holds blue and green tureens, cups, saucers, and plates from the Maidenhair Fern collection. Below it is a tea set with the transfer known as May with Pets. The tall sugar pot with this set is also referred to as a biscuit jar.
Both sets date to This is the large green Maidenhair Fern tureen. I especially like this find because it came with the pottery ladle!

The ladles for dinner sets are rare because they were so easily broken. This darling sugar jar is from the Old Mother Hubbard collection, circa to One reference claims this is English while the other says American made. Living in the Pacific Northwest, I do not find toy Staffordshire at my local antique shops and sales.
Luckily, it is fairly available on eBay and Ruby Lane, if one is not too discerning in searching for particular patterns and colors. Additionally, if your budget can only handle single pieces rather than sets, she has a good revolving selection on eBay at nbarrister. Nancy is a friendy and accomodating seller who provides professional packing for your treasures. For a broader view of the scope of English toy china dishes, an observation of how they changed over the years, and more information on the makers of these pottery whimsies and their marks, I highly recommend two books:.
Here we have the last sugar bowl of our mystery grouping from Part 1 of this article, at circa It is open and intentionally has no lid. Damp winter days are the time to cuddle up with a hot cup of tea and a good book, but spring Valentines, bunnies, and baskets beg for a tea party! All the antique dolls are invited, and there will be plenty of dishes to go around with all the lovelies that were made in the Staffordshire district in England, and a few other places of note as well. There will be plenty to share for two articles on this subject:.
The depth in their history, and the wide variety that these little toys provide, make them a joy to collect, display, and play with! The history of English porcelain, and that of play dishes, is closely connected with the history of tea in England. Coffeehouse owner Thomas Garraway had to explain the new beverage in pamphlets and advertisements. As tea was her temperance drink of choice, it gained social acceptance among the aristocracy.
Because tea was introduced primarily through male frequented coffee houses, there would have been far less social acceptability for women to drink this beverage had it not been for her example. The growth in the import of tea parallels that of sugar in the 18th century. Between and the imports of tea to Britain through the British East India Company more than quadrupled. Tea was particularly interesting to the Atlantic world, not only because it was easy to cultivate, but also because of how easy it was to prepare, and its ability to revive the spirits and cure mild colds.
When tea was served in such a grand setting as that of Catherine of Braganza, it was generally in the company of female friends within a bedchamber or closet a small room for entertaining guests near the bedchamber. The tea itself and the delicate pieces of porcelain for brewing and drinking it were displayed in the closet. Inventories for wealthy households during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries list tea equipage in these small private closets or boudoirs, not in kitchens or dining rooms.
The earliest English equipages for making tea date to the s. Tea-drinking hastened the search for a European imitation of Chinese porcelain, which was first successfully produced in England at the Chelsea porcelain manufactory established around and quickly imitated. Soft-paste porcelain resulted from the earliest attempts of European potters to replicate Chinese porcelain at a time when its composition was little understood. The earliest formulations were mixtures of clay and ground-up glass. The tea equipage in the painting above has the characteristic shape of early Leeds Pottery with Chinese scenes which were popular at that time.
The teapot on the left has a round shape, a raised rim, and plain handle and spout with a very slight curve. The bowls or cups are handleless and the saucers are deep dish. There is a large slop basin, or waste bowl, in the upper right corner. This was a necessary piece for English sets, as it was never appropriate to pour fresh tea onto cold tea in a cup.
