1900 Antique Ampthill Union Church Blue & White Plate, Bedford England

  • £45.00


This is antique advertising 6 " dinnerware English pottery china plate for the Ampthill Union Church. It is also marked "A. Young and Co., Hanley" in blue on reverse. Hanley is in in Staffordshire, England, and is one of the six large towns that together formed Stoke-on-Trent in 1910. It is possible A. Young was a store or distributor, although we can find not info on the company. We can however safely assume this old china or porcelain ware was made in an old Staffordshire pottery.

It appears the Ampthill Union Church eventually became the Ampthill Baptist Church, also with very little historical church history found online. Ampthill is a town and parish in Bedfordshire, England, located between between Bedford and Luton. Bedfordshire as a county is in eastern England, and border Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, and Buckinghamshire. It appears there is a 1997 book entitled "Seize The Day: A Bicentenary History of Ampthill Baptist Church" by Stephen Bunker.

This great old original piece was found in Northampton, England. It is a dinner or cake plate with a beautiful blue and white transferware design for the church, with old Victorian embellishments, see photos. Click images to see beautiful condition in very close up and movable views. We would date it in the 1900-1920, WWI era, which also is the the Victorian / Edwardian era. It is clean and beautiful, with no chips, cracks or repairs.
