Vintage 1950s Hudson & Middleton Sutherland DEVON VIOLETS Sugar Bowl and Creamer, Bone China


Sutherland English Bone China
Sugar Bowl & Creamer
"Devon Violets"

An English Bone China open sugar bowl and creamer from Sutherland, in a pattern called "Devon Violets." The elegant little bowl and creamer have thick gold trim, with a richly colored pattern of violets on the front, with smaller flowers on the inside rim of the bowl and back side of both pieces. The set probably dates to the 1940s or 1950s.

This set is in good condition. The bowl has no chips, cracks, crazing, staining, or scratches. There is a bit of wear to the gold (a couple of tiny rough spots, such as the tiny glaze pop on the gold rim). The creamer has what appears or feels like a thin, tight hairline crack at the base of the handle; it isn't a break, and I think it might be original to manufacture, when the handle was applied.

The bowl measures 3.25 inches wide across the rim, 1-5/8 inches wide across the foot, and 2 inches high at the rim. The creamer is 2.5 inches high at the spout tip, 4 inches long from spout tip to handle end, and 2 inches wide across the foot.

Both pieces have a clear mark on the underside for "Devon Violets / Sutherland / English Bone China / Made in England." There is also a green MH mark, which I believe is for Hudson & Middleton, which originally operated out of the Sutherland works in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent.
