A delightful early 19th century english Victorian Staffordshire pottery Cow Creamer with Willow Pattern transfer body. In completely original and untouched condition. This is an unmarked example so could have been made in any of the many potteries operating at the time.

‘The Cow Creamer Story’

The rise in the consumption of tea, coffee and hot chocolate created a need for specific equipment to prepare and serve these drinks. Cow creamers were first introduced in The Netherlands in the early 18th century and they soon became fashionable among the English elites. They were originally produced in stoneware from potteries located in Staffordshire, South Wales, Yorkshire, Tyneside and Scotland.

The condition overall on the Cow is excellent. There are no chips, cracks or restoration. Some of the brown/gilding has worn around the mouth and horns, as would be expected with age. The base has a couple of nibble chips at the front. The slight indent, on the front base, is actually part of the original pottery shape with glazing and not a chip. It comes with its original lid button which is very good order.
