Antique Charles Allerton & Sons Blue And White 3-piece 'stag' Transferware Set :
This is a lovely blue and white transferware set that was made in England by Charles Allerton & Sons. This pottery manufactured earthenware and china in Longton, England from 1859 to 1942. The set consists of a 6 7/8-inch plate, a 5 1/8-inch saucer and a 2 ½-inch tall teacup with a 3-inch mouth. All three matching pieces have a bright white ground and display a detailed transfer print that features an image of a stately posed stag in the center surrounded by whimsical images including a sailboat, elaborate scrollwork and fancy floral motifs. A delightful zig-zag pattern serves as a border on the plates and a dainty swag pattern is featured along the inside rim of the cup. The pottery appropriately named this pattern, “Stag”. The brown Charles Allerton & Sons backstamp is printed on the two plates which dates these early pieces to sometime between 1890 and 1912. Considering the age of this set all three pieces have been very well preserved with only a few flaws. The larger plate has a small chip along the rim, the cup has a blemish, or discoloration on the sailboat scene and some paint wear on the handle, and all of the pieces have signs of crazing. Despite these minor flaws, this is a handsome set of antique blue and white transferware.
