Green Transferware Vingette

Good evening blogger friends.  I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  Today, I am sharing a quick post of a vignette I put together with my Green Transferware made in Hanley England by J.H.W. & Sons.  I also share a little history on Falcon Pottery..
The J.H. Weatherby & Sons(Ltd), a family-run company was founded in Tunstall in 1891 and moved to Hanley the following year. Named 'Falcon Pottery', it was the base for their manufacturing and trading of earthenware, and was one of a number of similar potteries in Stoke on-Trent. 1906 saw the addition of a circular bottle kiln, typical of the time but becoming rather rare now.

It first made domestic ware such as printed toilet sets, trinket sets, vases, teapots, tableware and tableware fancies, jugs, fern pots and lidded chamber pots. Soon after World War I, Weatherby began to supply advertising ware to hotels and caterers and later to hospitals and institutions. In the 1920s and 1930s it experimented with modernist matt glazes and introduced Art Deco-style vases, tableware and fancies.

In 1934 it launched Woodpecker Ware tableware, which is highly sought after today, as it its Harvest Time tableware. After World War II the pottery introduced many new lines in giftware and fancies which are now collectable.
Thank you for stopping by to visit.  Your lovely comments are always appreciated.

  5. I really am interested in the history of china and do a good bit of research on it. However, I learned something this morning - I had never read anything about Weatherby and Sons. Thank you for sharing this with your readers. Your green transferware is so pretty - love the "carved" white rim surrounding the green and white. Lovely!

  21. I don't see very much green transferware, and I can see this is a lovely set. I am thinking how nice it would be for a St.Patrick's Day or Christmas table-setting. But mostly, lovely all year round.

  37. Hello, I just came across your blog by chance, as I was looking for JHW photographs on Google.

    I have a 12 piece setting (well I think there are actually only 9 full settings of everything) of Regal, by JHW. I have been searching for 12 years on Ebay and every antique shop I can find. Last week I received an email from a lady who had two bread and butter plates. We made a deal and the two dishes arrived this week - the first I have been able to add to my collection.

    Your set is Lyndon, which is very similar in design, and precisely the same in colour. I have two saucers and the large platter in Lyndon. I've picked them up over the years just because they are so similar to my Regal. The saucers have gold plating on them (I think Lyndon were made in both plain and gold plate, although that may be incorrect).

    Do you have many pieces of Lyndon, or just what you show in the photos? I note you have a flower vase - that is something that I don't have in the Regal, not sure if it did originally or not. I also wonder if there may have been a teapot, or salt and pepper shakers. I do have the creamer, sugar bowl, gravy boat (and salver???), two vegetable tureens, and two platters, one large, one smaller, as well as the usual dinner plates, salad plates, bread and butter, soup bowls, cups and saucers.

    I will include a blog that I wrote a few years back, just for your interest. Would love to hear more on the history of your set. My blog:
