What we love:
Finding an antique ironstone soap dish with its insert is a rare find!
Measures 6 x 4” and is 2.25” deep.
Overall height including the lid is 4.25”.
The insert measures 5 x 3” and is 3/8” thick.
The bottom bears the makers mark Coxon & Co. with the royal lion and unicorn crest.
Charles Coxon set up business in Staffordshire, England in the early1800s. He emigrated to America in 1849 and found work at the Edwin Bennett Pottery Co in Baltimore and eventually became the lead designer and modeller for the company. His company, Coxon & Co. was established in Trenton, NJ in 1863.
In very good with no cracks and just one tiny chip at the edge of the rope and bar finial (see photos).
It has a beautifully aged patina with crazing all around and some discoloration in places.
Classic antique white ironstone is a farmhouse staple and we’re thrilled to offer this piece to you! A great addition to your collection, to display and enjoy!
