Turner The Villager China - 2 items found.

Plate c1825 Maker: Turner  Pattern:The Villager
Plate c1825
Made by William Turner of Lane End, Staffordshire active 1806 to 1829. This is the version with the pretty floral border and the rim unusually shows a few signs of once being gilded. Impressed backstamp TURNER and paper sticker for the Morley College Ceramic Circle Exhibition of 1974 number 27. This plate has been well used and the face has some speckling in the glaze. The rim and back are worn and discoloured in places, including a couple of minor chips, but this is all on the back. The glaze is sound, so basically OK, but certainly looks its age.
Dimensions: 25 cm / 9.75 ins

Toilet Box c1825 Maker: Turner  Pattern:The Villager
Toilet Box c1825
The Turners of Lane End, Longton were amongst the earliest potters to perfect underglaze blue transfer printed earthenware. This box and cover are by William Turner, potting in his own name 1806 to 1829, and are decorated with The Villager pattern with its lovely floral border. Toilet boxes were often part of a toilet set and were used to hold the early implements for cleaning teeth, usually some split wood and pieces of lint. The charming rural scene is beautifully printed on the cover, which is slightly bowed to fit the curve of the base. It is in excellent condition. The base has fine crazing to the glaze, with a couple of minor stains inside, a few signs of wear to the base underneath, a minor manufacturing hairline to one of the internal rests and a possible tiny knock to the foot rim, but in reality in good condition. This toilet box and cover are actually the best we have seen for a long while. There is a bold blue printed Turner on the base. See Page 387 of Volume II of The Dictionary of Blue and White Printed Pottery by Coysh and Henrywood for a similar toilet box by Turner in this design.
