Replacements, Ltd.
Breathtaking Artistry, Ornate Designs

 

Royal Winton is world-renowned for chintz china, and Sunshine, first produced around 1930, is one of the most exquisite examples of the company’s work. Rimmed, scalloped china, Sunshine bursts with pink and blue blossoms and green leaves against a white background, with the rim of the plate trimmed in rich gold. The word “chintz” derives from the Sanskrit, “chitra,” for “many colored.” Chintz calico was imported from India into Europe at the beginning of the seventeenth century. But not until three centuries later would the English popularize the decoration on dinnerware. Royal Winton developed a specialized transfer printing process to apply these bold, elaborate designs to china so that they could be produced affordably. Royal Winton’s first chintz design, Marguerite, was an immediate success upon its introduction in 1928. The company followed this success with another chintz pattern, Delphinium, three years later. Over the next 30 years, Royal Winton would release more than 50 chintz designs, including popular patterns like Summertime, Old Cottage Chintz, Welbeck, Sweet Pea, and Cheadle.

Wildflower-Clear crystal by Cambridge flares at the top, with a delicate, cascading floral design etched on the concave bowl. The stem of the glass is ornate, with a textured, molded design, and a round foot. This shapely, intricate pattern is the very epitome of elegance! The Cambridge Glass Company was founded in 1873, when a group of businessmen from the town of Cambridge, Ohio chartered a glass producing facility.  Most of the company’s early designs were heavy, pressed-glass patterns. The company achieved steady growth during the early part of the twentieth century, and during the 1920s, 30s, and 40s the company released its most successful shapes, colors, and etchings. In 1931, the company debuted its very successful Rose Point etching, as well as the popular Nude Stems collection.  Many of the company’s most famous colors were developed during this period, including “Carmen,” “Crown Tuscan,” “Royal Blue,” and “Heatherbloom.” Soon after the end of World War II, the company began to experience declining sales. In 1958, the company closed its doors, and Imperial Glass acquired all of Cambridge’s molds and equipment.  While the Cambridge company is now closed, its legacy lives on at Replacements.

Making its debut during the reign of Queen Victoria, Buttercup sterling silver by Gorham is an excellent example of the Greco-Roman applied art popular during the period. It features a scalloped shape, with an intricate design of buttercups, scrolls, and leaves. Produced from 1899 to around 1950, Gorham Buttercup includes a large selection of sterling silver place setting and serving pieces. The pattern is also available in magnificent hollowware, including tea sets.
