STANLEY CHINA ENGLAND POTTERY MARK QUERY:- My maternal Aunt, a WW2 War Bride from England, is now 91 and living in Canada.
Recently she gave me what remains of china which her grandmother, who was from Liverpool, had given to her as a wedding gift.

I just wondered about the history of it. It has sentimental value to me as by coincidence my father's 1st name was Stanley!

The mark is a circular " STANLEY CHINA" on the top
"ENGLAND" on the bottom with a full crown in the center. The marking is green.

The cups have a number 4060 which appear to be handwritten in gold.

There are no numbers on the plates or saucers.

Thank you so much for any information that you might be able to pass on to me.

Dear Wendy

Thanks for your delightful submission! I like to hear about sentimental attachments to china which is why published without photos.

I have uploaded my own images of the the various Stanley Amison marks to aid visitors.

FIGURINES SCULPTURE

Your mark is that of Charles Amison & Co Ltd - used specifically between 1930 to 1941 only. Other 'Stanley' marks differ before and after.

Here's the rundown:

Amison/Stanley were a quality maker of bone china wares based at 'The Stanley China Works'. Be aware there is NO connection with H.J. Colclough (see the main Colclough Bone China section) who had an interest in an earthenware works based at the Stanley Pottery, Longton (see Royal Stanley China).






From 1887 to 1928 Colclough's firm was called “Stanley Pottery” - so much confusion can arise - and from 1928 Colclough & Co continued as the Stanley Pottery Ltd until c.1939. Again there is NO CONNECTION with your Amison/Stanley firm.

To add to the grey mist, I also found pottery marks saying - ‘The Stanley Pottery Co’. This maker was based at Newport Lane, Middleport, Burslem and operated from c.1909-1937. They were most likely a brand designed for export to America, not a domestic pottery mark.

Charles Amison (& Co Ltd) (ie your Stanley mark) produced bone china and porcelains from 1889 until they ceased trading in 1962.

Charles Amison pottery marks are distinct from Colclough’s “Royal” Stanley, not only in that they never, to my knowledge, carry the word “Royal”, but also in that, apart from their earlier pottery marks, they carry the words “bone china”. Colclough’s Royal Stanley was an earthenware maker, not a bone china plant like Amison, which needs specialist kilns.

The short answer is, you have some very nice bone china - and quite rare.

Hope this helps.

Best regards

stanley china
by: Sally

I have a huge teaset made by Stanley china, with a pattern number 3546 written in gold.
The strange thing is the large plates have a different stamp on the bottom - they say James Green & Nephew, and underneath a street scene the words Queen Victoria Street St Pauls.
I believe the set was a wedding present for my great aunt - sometime between 1910 and 1920?
If anyone knows some history of this royal blue, gold and orange flower pattern set I'd be really interested.

Stanley Pottery Co. Valuation Required
by: Darlene

Hi....

I have a question about a 5 piece set of pottery that my mother has asked me to help get an estimation of value for.

The pottery is marked "Stanley Pottery Co"
Burslem, England. The pieces also have a gilded number: 624.

It is a bathroom set and consists of 5 pieces: A large bowl and pitcher, a smaller pitcher, a piece that appears to be a holder for utentils, and a cup. They are in perfect condition with the exception of the cup that has a small chip and appears to have glued where it was once broken. They are mainly blue with some other subtle colors inherent in the design pattern.

Any help you could send my way would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks Again,
Darlene
