Orange is quite an unusual color to find in a Regency Period bat print. The subject matter is interesting, too: a young woman with a rather large cupid who is offering her hearts out of his basket. The bowl dates c.1810.
This large bowl was likely used for fruit or dessert. It is 8-1/2" in diameter, and quite shallow.
It is in very good condition. There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing, and no repairs. There is heavy wear to the orange lustre border trim (in fact, it has disappeared in places), and there are utensil marks to the bowl's interior.
The pattern number on the back is 2/1447. It is hand painted in orange lustre. No maker's mark.
