Antique Early 1800s Tucker Hulme Hemphill American Porcelain Creamer Pitcher NR!

This listing is for a lovely antique creamer/pitcher. According to the included letter of provenance that was inside, this piece was made by the Tucker Porcelain Company. After some research, it was difficult to determine whether it was made by William Ellis Tucker, his partner Hulme, or his later partner Hemphill. The piece is marked with an incised "H" on the bottom, which may indicate Tucker's porcelain decorator William Hand. The piece has a beautiful handpainted design featuring large colorful flowers accented by gold gilt. It measures 3 7/8" at its tallest point, 3" long from spout to handle, and 1 3/4" wide. We find no chips, cracks or crazing on the piece. Perhaps not surprisingly for a piece of this age, some of the gold gilt has worn away. This listing has no reserve price so don't miss your chance to win!

The shipping charge includes full insurance based on the anticipated value.

The winning bidder can also pick up this item at our store in Winooski, Vermont to save on shipping charges. All local pickups are subject to 6% Vermont state sales tax.


"Tucker china is variously marked, reflecting the work’s jumbled history of ownership. They include “William Ellis Tucker/China Manufacture/Philadelphia/1828?, “Tucker & Hulme” (sometimes with Philadelphia and 1828), and “Jos. Hemphill/Philad.” The china is also sometimes marked by its decorator with “B” for Charles Boulter, “F” for Charles Frederick, “H” for William Hand, “M” for Joseph Moran, “V” for a Vivian and “W” for Andrew Craig Walker."

Please check all of the available shipping methods and costs prior to bidding.
