1900 Antique Cricklade Wesleyan Sunday School Cup, Saucer and Plate
Cricklade is a small Cotswold town which sits on the River Thames. It is in the county of north Wiltshire, midway between Swindon and Cirencester, England. It is the first town seen on the Thames as it flows London bound.
In Cricklade history, the Wesleyans built their church in 1870 near the town bridge and Priory. They had been meeting there since the mid 19th century. Wesleyan, as a term, denotes followers of the Protestant Christian teachings of the great Anglican evangelist and clergyman John Wesley 1703-1791, and his brother Charles Wesley 1707-1788, a most notable and prolific hymn writer. The two separate Methodist congregations intermixed into one church in 1938, with the methodist chapels fully closing there in the late 1960's.
These 3 original vintage advertising English pottery Cricklade porcelain china pieces are sold all together. They are a teacup with a deep saucer, and a cake plate. All are clearly marked with the same early light blue pastel transferware pattern of the 1900 Cricklade Wesley Sunday School. There are no maker's mark on the reverse, but were made by English Staffordshire potteries.
