Charles Dickens wrote a weekly periodical about Humphreys Clock. Ridgway & Sons Co. came out with the delightful transfer pattern in 1840, and continued to make it until 1880. This pattern features a lady sitting in the yard doing needlework, with a young girl and boy at the gate. In the background there are cottages, barns and trees. I have three of these soup bowls and they are in wonderful condition. There is one with a small ding on the bottom, however this looks like a production error. There is overall fine age crazing, but there are no chips, cracks or stains. All are fully marked on the bottom. The bowls are befitting any fine flow blue/transferware collection. The price is per bowl of which I have three.
The bowls measure 71/2" across the rim and are 1 1/2" deep.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or for additional photos.
