Soup Tureen Derwentwater c1835 Maker: Masons  Pattern:British Lakes Series
Soup Tureen Derwentwater c1835
Made by Charles James Mason & Co of Fenton Works, Lane Delph, Staffordshire. One of the famous Mason family. This is an extremely large tureen with stand and cover, which has a large and ornate finial. The view on the stand is Derwentwater in Cumbria. There is a different scene on the tureen itself, repeated on both sides, of an unidentified lake and on the cover the view is again of Derwentwater. Backstamp: Blue printed Crown over British Lakes New Stone China Derwentwater. The stand is crazed with discolouration and there is a hairline underneath to the foot. The tureen is also crazed with discolouration inside. Both handles have stress cracks and one also has a small hairline. The cover with its fabulous finial is crazed, with a small chip to the inside rim and a stress crack underneath by the handle join. As usual sounds much worse than it looks! On display most of the defects are hidden and it is a fine imposing set.
Dimensions: Tureen 26 cm diameter / Tureen 10.25 ins diameter

Ewer Derwentwater c1835 Maker: Masons  Pattern:British Lakes Series
Ewer Derwentwater c1835
This is a lovely series of different lakeland scenes, which Masons used on a wide range of pieces. The view here is named Derwentwater, although it appears not to be the same as another view with the same name in this series. This ewer was made during the era of Charles James Mason & Co. from 1829 to 1845. Backstamp: British Lakes above a crown and New Stone China beneath and then Derwentwater and C M & Co beneath that. It is rare to see C M & Co rather than C J M & Co. There are a few minor blemishes and blue smudges to the ewer which will have occurred during manufacture. There is a nick off the glaze on the foot at the front. Otherwise a lovely ewer overall in excellent condition.
Dimensions: 2.3 ltr 23 cm / 4 pints 9 ins high
