Marks on Nelson ware
Beautiful old chintz cup and saucer,
decorated in colorful "Briar Rose" chintz design with a creamy
ivory interior, angular handle and gilded edges.
6 3/4" cereal or oatmeal bowl.
There is a double band of green around the 3/4" rim
showing signs of wear in two places. The illustration in the bowl is of
three nursery characters; Neddy the Donkey, Pimple the Clown, and a
puppy dog in a blue dress carrying water pails. The accompanying rhyme
reads: " Pimple for a trick/ Was having a ride/ Neddy with a kick/
Flung him far and wide".
underside of the base of the bowl is stamped "BCM/ Nelson Ware Made
English copper luster pitcher.
It is 3” high and 4 ½” from handle to spout.
The bottom is a plain brown glaze and marked
Nelson Ware, BCM, made in England.
The jug stands 5" tall and is 4.5"
at the widest part.
The pattern is Kaleidoscope and certainly looks like chintz.
