SUPERB BROWN TRANSFERWARE WASH BASIN AND PITCHER

ABBEY RUINS PATTERN

THOMAS MAYER POTTERIES  Longport, Staffordshire, England  1826-1838

Basin 12 3/8 inches wide x 4 1/2 inches tall

Pitcher 9 inches wide x 9 3/4 inches tall

Sheep, cows, abbey ruins, incredible borders.  It doesn’t get any better than this.

Spectacular condition with  a touch of discoloration inside the bottom of the jug.  Evidently locked in a cabinet for almost 200 years.  Serving pieces of this quality don't come along often, and the contrast and composition is especially beautiful in this rich brown color.
