'BIBLE' c1890 DINNER SERVICE FOR 6
This cheerful dinner service is in the style of Masons. Many of Masons patterns are derived from original pieces imported from China. Miles Mason was born in Yorkshire and moved to London to work for his uncle. The shop next door housed a retailer, Richard Farrar, who imported a vast array of table ware from China. In the fullness of time his business was inherited by his daughter Ruth and she and Miles married. Miles started his own manufacturing business drawing on the stock of the shop for ideas.
A dinner service for six comprises of one each of the three service pieces, covered tureen, covered vegetable dish, open vegetable dish and six each of the dinner, side and soup plates.
We make the Stokesay Ware range of miniature china for doll's houses by hand here in London in the scale of 1 inch = 1 foot or one twelfth life size. It is made from bone china clay which is biscuit fired then glazed and fired again. The decoration of coloured ceramic enamels and 22ct gold is applied separately and permanently fired on in the kiln. We make all our own moulds and draw our own artwork so each part of the process is our own and unique to Stokesay Ware.
