These four beautiful dessert dishes carry a central motif depicting 'The Chelsea Bird,' and include the signature of A. Roberts who devised the original design for the transfer.
Myott, Son & Co. Ltd. - one of the Staffordshire Potteries - began production in Cobridge in 1898. The pottery moved to Hanley in 1947 and suffered a large fire in 1949. This resulted in the loss of many patterns and valuable records, thus making this design from the 1930s, a fabulous part of British ceramic history.
Myott also manufactured white ware which they produced for the Cunard shipping company, including cubist style tea sets.
These dishes would serve equally well to serve soup.
