Description
We are extremely proud to present this incredible pair of original English Podmore & Walker black transfer ware 9" plates in the Washington Vase pattern ca. 1834-1848. Our early Victorian pair feature a central vase, + lake & buildings in the distance. The border is a compilation of stylish vase medallions, surrounded by a unique fish net diaper pattern. This actual pattern can be found on Page #84 of Staffordshire Romantic Transfer Patterns/ by Petra Williams with Marguerite R. Webber, and the pre-1848 dating is by the Kowaksky's, as after 1849, the Wedgwood banner was added. Our 9" plates have a total weight of 2# 6oz. and represent a RARE VALUE, as their condition is exceptional for their age. Research consulted: Encyclopedia of Marks On American, English, and European Earthenware Ironstone & Stoneware 1780 to 1980 / by Arnold & Dorothy Kowalsky; Encyclopedia of British Pottery and Porcelain Marks, AND, An Illustrated Encyclopedia Of British Pottery And Porcelain 2nd Ed / both by Geoffrey A. Godden. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx G. Podmore, Walker & Co. took over the Unicorn Pottery and Pinnox Works on Well Street in Tunstall, Staffordshire in 1834. By 1850, the company had expanded to the Amicable Street works, and in 1853, closed the Well Street factories, moving that operation into the Swan Bank Tunstall, Staffordshire Potteries, which had been vacated by Ralph Hall in 1849. Podmore, Walker & Co. is actually listed by Ward in 1843 as having two factories, Newfield and Tunstall, but both Geoffrey Godden and the Kowalskys date the acquisition of the Newfield Pottery ca. 1856 to 1859, and the initials P. W. & Co. appear on several printed marks, with history recording that the Co. is the Enoch Wedgwood partnership. In late 1859, the firm officially became Wedgwood & Co., when Enoch Wedgwood succeeded the older partnership, and the use of the P & W stamp designation ceased forever. After 1859 the marks WEDGWOOD and WEDGWOOD & CO. were used, and Chaffers illustrates a mark of a Unicorn with WEDGWOOD & CO. on a blue-printed plate, PLUS, as this includes the words Trade Mark, it denotes a date after 1860. In post 1860 examples, Wedgwood & Co. also used the trade name PEARL STONE WARE.
