About

We are pleased to offer this exquisite pair of rare and beautiful 18th century pierced creamware baskets and stands. An image and description can be found in "Creamware and other English Pottery at Temple Newsam House Leeds", by Peter Wilson. (In the shop we consider this to be the definitive book on 18th century creamware.) On page 133 it says: "A pair of fruit baskets with shaped rims molded with shells, foliage and scrollwork, the flared sides molded with festoons of flowers, pierced with panels of openwork and provided with a pair of foliate handles with flower terminals. The stand with shaped rim molded with shells, foliage and scrollwork and pierced with panels of openwork pattern. Staffordshire or Yorkshire, 1780 Provenance: Richard Wildson: H. C. Embleton; his gift 1828" Dimensions: 10.5 inches x 9 inches x 3.75 inches tall Condition: Excellent Price: $3800 for the pair Background History Creamware is the name given to a type of earthenware pottery which is made from white clays from Dorset and Devonshire combined with an amount of calcined flint. Creamware was first produced in England some time before 1740. Foremost of the pioneers of creamware in the Staffordshire Potteries was Thomas Whieldon. He produced a wide variety of creamware. The young Josiah Wedgwood was in partnership with Thomas Whieldon from 1754-1759, and when Wedgwood left to set up his own business, he immediately directed his efforts to the development of creamware. Many of the Staffordshire Potteries learned from Whieldon and Wedgwood and developed their own excellent creamware products.
