Franciscan Ware Floral Pattern, England ca. 1980’s

19 Jan

As you can see, I like bold, bright coloured dishes for the most part.   They just look so cheerful.

They are Franciscan Ware made in England.  A very kind friend researched and found out the name of the pattern was Floral.  All Franciscan ware was made in the US until 1984. After that, Franciscan ware production was moved to England. The Franciscan brand became part of a group of companies known as WWRD, an acronym for “Wedgwood Waterford Royal Doulton.”   So these would be dated after 1984.

There are 4 dinner plates, 4 luncheon plates, 4 soup bowls and 4 dessert bowls, one covered sugar and one vegetable bowl.  All the dishes are in excellent condition, with little evidence of usage.  Nice shiny surfaces.  Some of the dishes have slight crazing in the glaze, but really not that noticeable.

These will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte, ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa

Priced at $ 85 for the set.

Please note these dishes are now SOLD!!!

Susie Cooper Coffee Set, Parrot Tulip, 1950’s

31 Dec

 

susie cooper tea pot and cups

Susie Cooper was born in 1902, at Stansfield near Burslem. Her first job was as a paintress for the pottery decorating firm of A.E. Gray at the age of 20.  She wanted more freedom to do her designs and set out on her own at the age of 27 to become an independent pottery producer. Her earlier art deco designs are widely collected and valuable.

The above pattern was designed sometime in 1955 and is called Parrot Tulip.  The shape of the dishes is Quail.  I believe these are decorated using lithographs on bone china.

Unfortunately the coffee pot is damaged beyond repair. there is a huge crack down the back side and one on the front. Only the lid is in perfect condition.  I saved the teapot to show the Quail shape.

The rest of the set will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON which is open 7 days a week all year round.

Set includes 5 demi tasse cups and 5 saucers (one of the cups has a hairline crack) cream and sugar.

Priced at $45 for the cups and saucers and cream and sugar.
