Toy china is one of my little passions or obsessions depending on what way you look at it!
I first blogged about these here
|GIRL WITH GOAT|
This sepia & white tea service dates to around 1860 and is called Girl With Goat by Cork, Edge & Malkin of Staffordshire ... I am lucky to have the full service of teapot, sucrier, slop bowl (quite often mistaken for a sugar bowl), milk jug, six cups and six saucers.
Dating to the 1860s again this is a part service as I don't have the tea pot or milk jug
This was a bargain find for £1 in a CS .... a little flow blue sucrier which I haven't been able to identify yet but probably dates to the 1880s
This tureen is from a dinner service by Ridgways of Staffordshire and dates to the late 1890s ... the service has two sizes of tureen, open vegetable dishes, three graduated serving platters, dinner plates and even a tiny little ladle.
