Here is a delightful small teabowl and matching saucer made for a child’s tea set, decorated in green, red, blue and black with flowers and leaves. Displayed on the shelf it is splendid, and in perfect condition. The saucer is four and one-eighth inches across and has a painter’s tally mark on the bottom. “Adam’s Rose” is the name given to a host of wares that use this style of simple cottagey decoration, because Adams pottery factories made a lot of it. This could actually be by Adams, because they used the same combination of colors, but other potters did too. It is very precisely and expertly made, and dates from the first quarter of the nineteenth century. Usually I don’t separate tea sets, but this one had so few remaining pieces that I decided to sell the parts individually. I also have listed the teapot from the set, and there are a couple more pieces available.
