This pair of lightweight creamware tea cups, each measuring 2-5/8″ tall,┬áhas orange transfer decoration with the “Liverpool Birds” pattern

These were most likely made in Wedgwood, England

When the handle of the cup on the right broke in three places, metal cleats were attached on either side of the cracks and painted to mask the repair

The cup on the left has metal staples holding the cracks stable and were also painted to match the body of the cup

Creamware pepper pot, c.1790

Friday, March 19th, 2010

This tiny Wedgwood pepper pot was made in England in the late 1700’s and stands a mere 2-1/2″ high.

The beautifully scalloped and beaded sterling silver rim masks unsightly chips to the base.

A faint WEDGWOOD mark can be seen on the bottom of the pot.

A perfect, larger pepper pot with an unblemished base.
