Antique Victorian Carlton Ware Biscuit Jar (cookie Jar) C1894:
Carlton Ware Cookie Jar / Biscuit Barrel
For sale is an early biscuit
barrel / cookie jar by Wiltshaw & Robinson / Carlton Ware dated to 1894 by the registration number below the backstamp.
I cannot find a pattern name, but it is considered "Blush Ware". This name aptly describes the delicate pastel shaded backgrounds. The jar is hand painted in blue, mauve and pink flowers with green leaves on a pale background.
Lid and rim appear to be silver plate, but there are no markings to indicate it is. I have cleaned this to some degree, but some tarnish remains.
I also note the lid has some small pit or wear marks.
Condition is good for its age. No chips, cracks, crazing or restoration detected.
Please view the pictures as they form part of the description.
The jar is 6" tall to the top of the lid (not counting the finial) and 5½” at the widest point.
This backstamp was in use from 1894 – 1926.
