F. & H.E. Hornby First Prize Cream Dish
A very rare antique white ironstone cream pot, decorated around the outside in underglaze black transfer for F. & H.E. Hornby First Prize Cream. The striking bold typography is accompanied by pictorials of the firms medal winning virtues from the 1895 & 1896 exposition of The British Dairy Farmers association.
A very scarce, diminutive Victorian cream crock produced by James Green & Nephew, London, with their oval manufacturers transfer to the underside. 19thC Cream pots from F. & H.E Hornby Devonshire Dairies note their london addresses as Richmond, Kew & St Margarets.
There is a hairline crack running through the dish but is stable, along with two chips that have been professionally restored on the foot. A very rare survivor that displays beautifully.
International customers and combined shipping
International buyers (outside of the UK) - When you add an item to your cart you can select a shipping destination and the postage will be calculated. Usually this is correct, but for multiple purchases and larger items it is advisable to enquire before purchasing, as shipping is based on rough estimates to different regions and may vary to that stated. You may 'buy it now' with the shipping cost calculated, but if this is incorrect we may contact you after purchase. We will either issue a refund for the difference, or request for a remaining postage balance to be paid, either way we will always contact you before any changes are made. Our standard postage costs include tracking where possible and usually require a signature upon receipt, please also include a contact phone number when ordering. Postage to P.O. boxes must be enquired about before purchase as many shippers do not deliver to them.

It is best to message us first for a shipping quote, but to avoid missing out you can purchase items through the website immediately without paying a shipping fee. Add the desired pieces to your cart, then view your cart and in order summary there is a drop down menu with postage options. Select *Multiple purchases & combined shipping* and the shipping price will be removed. You can now pay for your selected items and we will contact you with a shipping quote to then be paid separately.
