At Replacements, Ltd. we currently have more than 200,000 different china patterns on file, comprising just fewer than 5,000 manufacturers. In all that enormous collection, there are few patterns more stunning that Myott/Staffordshire Chelsea Bird-Blue. Magnificent bird designs signed by “A. Robert,” combined with a cobalt blue rim and delicately formed gold scrollwork trim, make this pattern truly breathtaking to behold. The firm of Myott, Son & Co. Limited, a family-run business based in Staffordshire, England, was founded in 1898 and operated under different trade names for 93 years. The company partnered in production with the Alexander Pottery, Stoke-on-Trent. A fire in 1949 destroyed most of the company’s records and pattern books, denying collectors a wealth of information.
Elegant encrusted gold scrollwork trim with a flared, optic-design bowl, a notched, multi-sided stem, and a round foot with encrusted gold trim produce absolutely spectacular effects in St Louis Thistle crystal. Delicately shaped, this magnificent pattern is substantial, with real heft. And you’ll love its “Old World” charm! Its maker, St Louis, is acclaimed as the oldest “cristallerie” in France – the firm was founded in 1586 in the Lorrain region, renowned worldwide for the magnificent quality of its crystal. In Lorrain is the town of Baccarat, home to a crystal museum and the eponymous manufacturer, one of the most famous crystal makers in the world. This rich tradition comes to dazzling life in the beauty of St Louis Thistle crystal!
Featuring an embossed pheasant design and named for one of the most celebrated artist-naturalists in history,
Tiffany & Co.
is sterling silver of dazzling beauty. Over a period of more than 170 years,
Tiffany & Co. has come to represent the pinnacle of American wealth, artistry, and luxury. In 1837 Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young opened an emporium for luxury goods on Broadway in New York City. They made a splash in the fancy goods world by establishing nonnegotiable prices for all items, contrary to the custom of dickering over price, and by introducing its world-famous “Tiffany Blue Box.” All merchandise purchased from Tiffany was wrapped in distinctive blue boxes; today, the Tiffany & Co. box is trademarked, and the company is one of the most-respected silver makers in the world.
