It is my pleasure to offer for sale an awesome pedestal fruit bowl in the Chinaland pattern, produced in the 1920's by William Robinson, Carlton Ware of England. This piece of art features the large, golden pagoda with towering trees and two geisha ladies standing on the steps. Add the hand applied, colorful enameling of blue, yellow, orange and green, and this scene comes to life! There is an abundance of oriental mosaics, birds in flight, fishing boat, florals and trees in bloom. Handles have heavy golden trim. All on a royal sponge blue background with lots of golden filigree.
The pedestal and base of the dish are also heavily decorated and have the heavy golden trim.
I believe this decoration technique of the chinaland pattern is referred to as the Chinoiserie Frieze design which features the applied enamelling along with the heavy golden filigree.
The handled fruit bowl or centerpiece is 12" handle to handle, 7 1/4" wide. The piece stands 3 1/2" high, the base is 6 1/4" by 5 1/4" wide.
For the age of this beautiful piece of art, it is in fantastic condition. No chips, no cracks, there is some gold wear on the edge of the handles and a few light use marks on the inside of the bowl...certainly does not detract from beauty or use.
The base has the W&R Carlton Ware backstamp in black, which was used during the 1920-1926. It also has the pattern number 2728. Some also refer to this pattern as a New Mikado.
