Hello and welcome to this Auction,
You are bidding on a beautiful pink and black rose patterned COMPLETE wash set from the New Hall Pottery; Staffordshire.
Please see photos (Kitten not included)
Possibly dates from circa 1913 - 1929 when wash sets were extremely popular & fashionable and New Hall were considered to be a lead in this area of the market.
New Hall pottery is a UK based pottery making company. This company was started in 1782 at Newhall, Shelton, Staffordshire, England. In the eighteenth century, the company became one of the first companies in Staffordshire to manufacture porcelain efficiently. The main members of the company consisted of Samuel Hollins of Shelton, Anthony Keeling of Tunstall, John Turner of Lane End, Jacob Warburton of Hot Lane, William Clowes of Port Hill and Charles Bagnall of Shelton. The company bought the patent-rights for hard-paste porcelain from Richard Champion of Bristol. Earlier, the New Hall porcelain items were marked by painted pattern numbers that were prefixed with 'N' or 'No'. The company made glassy bone porcelain between the years 1810 and 1825. These glassy bone porcelain items were of the finest quality and some of them featured the factory name mark. The products made by New Hall pottery include cream jug, coffee cup and saucer, saucer dish, coffee can, tea bowl and saucer, among others. These items are available in beautiful patterns, styles and colours. Most of the New Hall pottery products are painted with beautiful patterns. The New Hall china cups look exquisite. These are delicate and beautifully patterned. Most of these New Hall bone china cups have an oval-ring shaped handle or large round ring handles. Some of the New Hall products are considered antiques and are a collector’s item.
'NHP' - the New Hall Pottery Logo and 'Made in England' are stamped on the bottom of the Chamber pot, Jug and wash basin, 'Made in England' is on the bottom of the accompanying soap dish and there is no mark on the bottom of the accompanying vase.
In addition the pattern number is identifiable in pink under the glazing on the chamber pot (very faintly, which I don't think shows up the pictures), and more defined on the jug; this is pattern number 2337
Also on the bottom of the Jug, chamber pot, and bowl under the glazing in blue is the number 11; this may have been markings for internal production identification.
The pieces are in extremely good condition, with very little wear to them. The most wear is around the base of the chamber pot, where some fo the glazing has worn away. There are the odd small pieces on the rims of the items which shows wear; again where the glazing has either not quite taken or has been worn away.
This has been handed down in my family but we sadly have no room in our house for it.
It is extremely rare to find a complete wash set, let alone one in such good condition
This would look perfect in any victorian / edwardian restored bathroom
