Marked on the bottom with 4845 Colclough China Genuine Bone China Made in Longton England.
The Colclough china company was founded in 1890 by Herbert Joseph Colclough, who was an ex-Mayor of Stoke-on-Trent. After expanding his company, he moved to the Vale potteries in Longton and was honoured when in 1913 he was visited by King George V and Queen Mary who gave royal licence for the company to produce Royal Vale china.
In the 1930’s Colclough China Limited was expanding fast and it was then that they started to produce the tea and dinner ware that we know today. They were the first company to produce fine bone china for the every day market which was marketed by the piece, ruling out the need for large sets to be purchased first.
In 1948, Colclough China Limited took over Booths and Adderley and then in the early 1950’s merged with the Ridgeway Company.
Colclough and Ridgeway became part of the Royal Doulton Group in the early 1970’s. However, in 1996, Colclough production discontinued and manufacture ceased.
The Waterford Lismore pattern is a stunning combination of brilliance and clarity. Diamond and wedge cuts showcase the unparalleled clarity of handcrafted Waterford crystal. This generously proportioned jug Crystal Pitcher with handle is ideal for iced water, homemade lemonade or fruit punch.
Lismore pattern has been Waterford’s pre-eminent design for 60 years. Derived from the Gaelic “lios more”, meaning “great ringfort”, Lismore was inspired by the gothic architecture of the 800 year old Lismore Castle in County Waterford, Ireland. Ancestral home to England’s Dukes of Devonshire since the 18th century, the famed castle overlooks the beautiful Muster countryside of the Irish coast.
Influenced by the 18th century Crystal designs of Waterford founders George and William Penrose, Waterford Crystal, designer Miroslav Havel created the Lismore pattern in 1953. The pattern features refined diamond cuts a signature of early Penrose designs and a symmetrical series of upward flowing wedge cuts. The clarity of the Crystal combined with the refraction of light through the cutting created what the world now treasures the enduring allure of Lismore.
