These gorgeous, Victorian child’s transferware tea set pieces were produced by Charles Allerton & Sons, Staffordshire, England, circa 1890.

The pattern is the incredibly charming “Little Mae (or May) and Her Pets,” and the color is in the desirable sepia brown.

Little Mae sits on her doorstep with her trusty dog by her side, her cat on her lap, and a kitten lapping up milk from a saucer beside her. Her dog appears to resemble a Spitz, or American Eskimo dog. The scene is framed by a lovely background, flowers, birds and geometrical whimsies within the border trim.

Some pieces are unmarked, some have the C.A. & Sons circular mark with the pattern number, and some are simply marked Staffordshire, England.

Children’s transferware in this fun pattern is highly sought-after, and animal lovers – like me – love it! The workmanship is charmingly haphazard, and the condition is very good for pieces of this age.

This grouping includes five cookie plates, all of which are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. They measure 5 3/8" across.


There are three tea cups, one with a hairline. One cup has a small separation at the bottom, done in the making. They measure 2" high.


Next is a "waste" bowl, which measures 2 1/2" high x 4" across, and has a hairline.


I have a set just like this one in my collection, and I adore it! I display it with large, antique dolls, and it makes a beautiful and delightful presentation. If you enjoy collecting antique toys, child’s tea sets, English Staffordshire transferware, or would like fun accessories for your doll collection, or if you have some of the pieces and need these to complete your set, then this set might be perfect for you.
