Lovely 6-piece Victorian Porcelain Pitcher & Washbowl Set F. Winkle England 1896:
This sale is for a Lovely 6-Piece Antique Victorian Porcelain Pitcher and Washbowl Chamber Set made by F. Winkle & Co. of England in the late 1800s.
The set is Beautifully decorated in a Blue Floral Transferware Pattern against a White Porcelain background.
The set consists of:
-A Large Pitcher, 11 1/2 inches tall.
-A Large Wash Bowl or Basin, 14 3/4 inches across.
-A Small Pitcher, 6 inches tall.
-A Mug, 3 1/2 inches tall.
-A Toothbrush Holder, 4 1/2 inches tall.
-A 3-piece Soap Dish with a bottom, a unique drainage insert and a lid.
The Set Displays Wonderfully. It was a recent estate sale purchase from an avid Chamber Set collector in Central Pennsylvania and is fresh to market.
The set is in Good condition, especially for its age.
The small pitcher has a firing line separation in the upper, inside part of the handle (photo 9) that does not go all the way through and was done in the manufacturing process. The pitcher has a very small firing line in its spout (see photo 10). The bowl has on its inside two faint hairlines (photo 11 & 12) and a small faint spot of discoloration, none of which go through or can be seen from the outside.
There are no chips in any of the pieces. The set has crazing as is expected from porcelain of this era and it adds character and authenticity.
Each piece has the FW & Co. backstamp used by F. Winkle of England and a separate registration number, which dates them to 1896.
Please check my response and buy with confidence. Also check my other sales. I am selling many other Pitcher and Wash Bowl Chamber sets.
I only ship within the contiguous US and only accept PayPal. Because of the size of this set, I will separate it into several boxes for the safest shipping. The shipping cost reflects that and also includes insurance.
