A beautiful Whieldon Ware Pekin Blue Transferware Rim Soup Bowl by F. Winkle, England circa 1908. The center of the bowl features a charming Asian-inspired transferware design in deep blue depicting a small pagoda, ships, and birds among a profusion of large flowers and foliage spilling from an urn in the foreground. The blooms and leaves are tinted with reds, greens, and a touch of golden-yellow in a texture that appears to have been done by hand. More blossoms circle the wide rim, and the edge of the rim is finished with a geometric scallop and dot motif in the same deep cobalt blue. The outer edge is trimmed in gold.
This remarkable bowl measures 10-1/2 inches in diameter and 1-5/8 inches deep. The rim is 1-1/2 inches wide.
It is stamped in blue with the pattern name, Pekin, in a banner and the Whieldon Ware double circle mark. This mark was used by F. Winkle, Stoke, Staffordshire, England between 1908 and 1925. There is also an impressed 10 and the pattern number 8314 is handwritten in red.
There is a very slight ding on the edge, as shown in the photos. Other than expected shelf wear on the underside, there are no condition issues.
