I am offering an early 1800's English Staffordshire covered serving bowl that was made by John Hall & Sons. The piece has a classic landscape pattern tranferware design which I believe is named “Antiquities” on the base. I found the name on the mark hard to read, but perhaps you can see it better. The bowl sits on four interesting paw feet and the finial on the lid is a cluster of fruit.
The bowl is 9-1/4” square and 10-1/2” across the embossed rose handles. The piece is about 6-1/2” high to the top of the finial. The base alone is about 2-1/2” high on the sides. There is a hairline crack on the interior of the lid and some crazing in the glaze. The feet have original firing cracks in some spots. Beyond this there are no other cracks or chips on the piece.
Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding the item or pricing. Ruby Lane allows for up to nine photographs so please be sure to scroll through all the using the arrows on the large photo. Some may not be shown in the thumbnail shots. Thank you for looking at my listings.
