Miniature Antique/vintage Ridgway "humphrey's Clock" Tea Set-22 Pieces Lovely:
For your consideration, a miniature Ridgeway "Humphrey's Clock" tea set!Below the large backstamp is the modifier "Scenes from Chas. Dickens Old Curiosity Shop".These pieces were all created between 1900-1920's.
The cups do not bear a backstamp but all other pieces are so identified excluding the tea pot lid and the small creamer.This would be splendid in a collection or in a curio for display!I have found 3-4 faint utensil marks on one plate within this set.Also, a small area on the back of one plate has some crazing which is not evident on the upper surface.Otherwise, no chips, cracks or repairs.
The set includes:(1) Teapot with lid - approx. 5" T. x 5 3/4" W. handle edge to spout tip(1) Creamer (Or as the English call it - "Jug") - approx. 2" T. x 4" W. handle edge to spout tip(1) Sugar Bowl - approx. 2" T. x 3" W.(6) Cups - approx. 1 7/8" T. x 3" W.(6) Saucers - approx. 4 1/4" W. x 3/4" T.(6) Plates - approx. 4 1/2" W. x 1/4" T.
In attempting to price this set reasonably, I explored the cost of replacement pieces. Excluding the teapot, (none were available for sale), the set cost $300.00. The replacement pieces were also antique/vintage. I'm confident that the person who purchases this set will have made a tremendous savings and acquired a beautiful collection.
Please review the photos of this amazingly intact, lovely set to better acquaint yourself with it and its condition.
