Large Ironstone Compote with Black Transfer ca. 1850

I have never seen one of these before; the body is ironstone, but it has a black transfer typical of the period with a scenic center and an ornate border with scrolls and scenic cartouche panels.

The blank is similar to the Columbia and Sydenham shapes seen in white ironstone, with a "petal" relief molded motif; I suspect that this was made by one of these firms, although the only mark is a small, impressed diamond type mark.

It is an interesting example of the transfer process, as the border tissue prints were awkwardly applied, with numerous overlaps and without consistent symmetry. Perhaps this was just done to use up some blanks at the factory.

Circa 1850.

A nice large compote, wonderful by itself or filled with fruit for a centerpiece on your table.

Note: International shipping is not available for this item.

Condition: Excellent.

Size: Top diameter approximately 12", 5.5" high.

Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, I would expect a return if I happen to miss anything.
