Large Antique English Bat Transfer Bowl - early 1800s

This is a highly collectible and sought after bat transfer large, shallow bowl in the New Hall style. It was made in the Staffordshire region of England (Leeds). Bat transferware was a "new" process where the inked engraving plate was pressed onto silk, which was then transferred to the unglazed piece. Because it was so labor-intensive, production took place only from 1798-1820!!! So this piece is around 200 years old! There were three main genres: landscapes & manor homes; religious images; and juvenile pieces by Adam Buck. They are found in black and in pink transfers, only occasionally in an orange color.

Made of soft-paste porcelain, trimmed in gold, the center medallion shows a tender scene of a mother and her child. The mother's lyre rests to her right, and their manor house can be seen in the background. Trees frame the scene both to the right and left with small bushes balancing out the foreground.

The bowl is 7 7/8 inches in diameter. It is 1 5/8 inches tall. I love the fact that it was hand thrown, due to the unevenness or slight "wobble" of the piece. There is a 1 inch hairline in the upper left corner. Otherwise, a lovely piece. Unmarked on bottom.
