We are very pleased to offer this fine trio of English hand painted porcelain Georgian style milk pitchers including two 1955-1965 James Kent 'Old Foley' Staffordshire examples, and measuring 5.75 x 5 x 7 & 6.25 x 4.5 x 6.25 inches tall respectively. There is also a 1980s 5 x 4.25 x 6 inch Churchill of Staffordshire, England finished in a handsome spiral rib mold. All of these milk pitchers are in excellent condition and feature brilliant floral spray patterns. The entire lot weighs 4#. xxxxxxxxxxxx. James Kent (Ltd.), was begun at the Old Foley Pottery on King Street, Longton Staffordshire, England in 1897, succeeding Moore, Leason & Co., and was in business until 1989. History records that a number of potters took residence in both the large Old Foley Pottery, as well as the Foley China Works. The Chinese Rose pattern, which is one of Kent’s signature patterns and was made ca.1897 to 1989 with great success. The original two stamps include a crown over a shield with J. Kent + Longton below, or a simple L in the shield. In 1910, Kent went to a crown over globe mark + a banner, and the globe was expanded to include Longton or Fenton, England & Ltd. in 1913, with the initial production of Ye Old Foley Ware. The reason for two potential location names, is that Fenton was essentially 3 expansive linked burghs or divisions, and Longton was located at the very outskirts in Fenton Culvert. The broad Ye Old Foley Ware line included many fine scenic plates, platters, mugs, tankards, flagons, and other general tableware with complicated bordering Chintz style florals. After a very successful run, the Old Foley Pottery stamp was used after 1955 (first mark). James Kent Ltd. was sold to Hadida Fine Bone China in 1989.
