All over floral (Chintzware) trio by Lord Nelson ware

SKU: 4720342

 Auld Curiosities is pleased to offer an “all over floral” (also known as Chintzware) trio by the pottery created by Elijah Cotton in 1880. He outgrew the first premises and in 1885 opened Nelson Pottery. This trio is in the Marina pattern which was introduced in 1939. The backstamp on each of the three pieces also refers to the initials BCM – standing for British Commercial Monomarks – which is a device created by William Morris, not really related to the production of pottery as such. The idea was that people and businesses could have a unique letter/number identifier, prefixed BM and followed by the postcode. This was intended to work in conjunction with the British Post Office and was touted as a major growth area. The idea never really gained traction and now while it still exists, it has diversified to continue.The sandwich plate has a diameter of 6 5/8”168mm), the saucer a diameter of 5 ¾” (146mm) and the cup stands 2 ¾” (70mm) tall. Condition is excellent.

  • Packaging and Postage

    With every item we sell, it is our intention to take every possible care to have it delivered to you in the same condition as when it left our premises. For this reason, packaging is tailored to each item and provides the maximum protection that we consider the item requires. Any item that arrives in a damaged condition should be referred to your postal service in the first instance for assessment of their handling of the package. If satisfaction is still lacking then we will look to see whether our efforts have been inadequate for fair handling of an item and if it is found to be so we will refund the cost of the item. Postage has now become a major cost in ecommerce so we try to strike a balance that will not unduly add excessive cost to your purchase.
