Here is a delightful teabowl and saucer in a popular pattern that was used by a number of early British porcelain factories. It’s based on a Chinese design and known as the Blue Rocks pattern. Well, the blue rocks look more like modern sculptures or cacti than rocks, but the British artists were imitating a Chinese design that they didn’t understand completely. This set was made by the factory owned by Anthony Keeling. Nearly all his wares are unmarked, and they are very similar to pieces made by several porcelain-makers of the period who looked to New Hall for major inspiration. Initially known anonymously as “Factory X,” Keeling’s factory flourished around the turn of the nineteenth century. The saucer is nearly five and a quarter inches across. Both pieces of this set are in great condition.
