Here is a smart and colorful bowl that once belonged to a tea service, decorated in one of the New Hall factory’s most popular patterns depicting fanciful scenes of Chinoiseries taste. Cooled-down tea that hadn’t been drunk was poured into a “waste bowl” or “dregs bowl” to allow the hostess to pour a new cup of hot tea for her guest. A waste bowl was a necessity for a complete tea set in the 18th century. The decoration here is in first-rate condition, with the only fault being some nearly invisible crazing on the underside. The bowl is a little over six inches across and right at three inches high.

A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
