Rare Elegant Collectible Antique Art Nouveau (1916) Standard China Gold Gilded Eggshell Bone China Coffee Set In Superb Condition. Please browse all 12 sets of photographs for quantity, size, weight and condition as they are self explanatory.
Lovely set in near perfect condition. This set is one of the earliest items ever made with the Standard China mark (before the Royal warrant when it became Royal Standard). This company was among the famous Staffordshire pottery companies, and based at Albert Works, Longton, Stoke-on-Trent. Longton was a center of pottery making from the mid-1700s.
The back stamp on this set is the earliest recorded Standard China mark (circa 1916). The pattern, although over 100 years old, was well ahead of its time and even today it would not look out of pace in a modern contemporary environment.
This design, very much like most Clarice Cliff patterns, is very sought after and collectible. The business was founded in 1916 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Thomas C. Wild & Sons and closed in 1966 when Allied English Potteries (who in 1964 had acquired the Wild companies) reorganised production.Had three known manufacturers trademarks. Standard China was one of them, used between around 1916 and 1930. The item "Rare Antique Art Nouveau (1916) Standard China Eggshell Bone China Coffee Set" is in sale since Thursday, August 30, 2018.
