PLAIN UPLIFT by Henry Meakin Antique Ironstone Covered Dish Circa 1875 Corbridge England
A GREAT FIND FOR COLLECTORS OF IRONSTONE!
Featuring a beautiful antique white ironstone COVERED VEGETABLE BOWL by Henry Meakin Pottery of Cobridge, England.
Henry Meakin produced pottery from 1873 when he took over Abbey Pottery from G.W. Rhead. The pottery factory ceased production in 1876. Since H. Meakin ironstone was made for such a short period of time, it is difficult to find.
The design is Plain Uplift, which was a popular line with many potteries in the 1870s and 1880s. Note how the handles seem to lift upward. The very sleek design would be popular on a table even today. The bottom of the bowl is stamped with the H. Meakin mark. Like many potters in the 19th and early 20th century, Meakin used the Royal Arms as part of his trade mark. Under the Royal Arms are the words, IRONSTONE CHINA H. MEAKIN.
The covered vegetable bowl measures nearly 13" wide from handle to handle and 10 ¼” wide rim to rim. It stands 3 ⅝” high without the lid and about 6 ¼” with the lid. Condition of the set is in nearly excellent. There are no chips, cracks or flakes to the dish or lid. There are a few small pits in the bottom of the bowl. Please review the photos carefully.
This would be a wonderful piece to add to someone's antique ironstone collection--or given as a wedding or shower gift!
