Eagle Bay is pleased to offer for your consideration this rare antique item.... iIrecently acquired 19 pieces from this pattern at an estate sale. The base is marked with WRS & Co which was used c1838-1848 which stands for William Ridgway, Son & Co. The pieces are marked with a green backstamp which says "Humphreys Clock - Scenes from Chas Dickens Old Curiosity Shop". There were books by Chas Dickens which were published in 1841, so assuming that Wm Ridgway modeled this tableware after the Dickens books which means these would have come out around c1841-1848..... however, they do have the word England on them which was required in 1891 because of the McKinley Tariff act whereby the name of the country had to be stamped on the exported items. NOTE: IT WAS BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THAT THESE ARE A RE-ISSUE WHICH PUTS THEM AROUND CIRCA 1894-1902.
Wow enough on the history..... Ireally hope that Imay be able to add to someone's great grandmothers set..... this pattern is an off white embossed with lots of details and scrollwork.... trimmed in green designs and scenes from the Dickens books such as "Garden in the Church Yard which is on the front of the saucers and bread & butter plates.
These pieces are all marked with what appears to be the number 7994.
If you may be interested in multiple pieces, please read my Build an Order below.

Please realize that antique and vintage items are usually not perfect!!!! If you are looking for PERFECT NEWMERCHANDISE, YOU ARE SHOPPING AT THEWRONG STORE!!!!!!
Vintage, antique itemsare desirable for their vintage, ethnic, or historical antique characteristics. Also, with functioning parts, as with clocks, lampsor lighters etc. I sell them primarily for their antique and vintage aesthetic appeal. If you need items such as these to function mechanically and be in perfect condition, I would suggest you visit K-Mart, Target or a department store that carries these products.
Antique glass items are going to bear certain characteristics common to their period of manufacture such as seam lines, straw marks, air bubbles and possibly the fact that their feet do not sit flat on a surface. Any questions or concerns, please ask!!!!!!!!! China dinnerware is going to have a number of characteristics which come with age, such as crazing, utensil marks, lines, dulling, hazing, fading etc. I do not photograph each individual piece, so please READTHEcondition as detailed in the description. I do not sell items with major flaws.
I will attempt to resolve any issues you may have prior to any negative response, and will strive to make sure that you are completely satisfied with your transaction. NEGATIVE response HURTS US ALL.Thank you for shopping at Eagle Bay!
