An elegant white Edwardian tureen in mint condition and generously planted with hyacinths (choice of white or blue). The hyacinths are shown as nearly fully grown, but we plant up as bulbs - which will take about 3-4 weeks to flower.


The bone china Staffordshire tureen was made by Crescent Potteries, a subsidiary of George Jones based in Stoke. At the age of 14 George Jones started a seven year apprenticeship with Minton. After completion in 1844 he worked as a travelling salesman for Wedgwood. By 1850 George had established himself as a successful pottery merchant and by 1856 he had opened a pottery showroom in Glebe Street, Stoke.


After George Jones died in 1893 - the business continued under the name 'George Jones & Sons' and around 1907 the works were renamed 'Crescent Potteries'. In 1929 the Jones family ownership ended when Walter Bakewell (who was the managing director) bought the business.

We include the provenance along with detailed care instructions for growing hyacinths.  The bulbs can be re-planted to flower again next season, and the tureen can be re-used as a bulb planter or as a vegetable or salad tureen. The perfect sustainable way to to have scented flowers in your home over winter and nothing single-use about any element!
