This is a stunning mid-19th century ironstone compote or tazza. This lovely piece is decorated with a rare transferware pattern in three colors, titled “ Egyptian,” with a bit of Flow Blue and gilded touches.
The Arabic looking pattern is repeated on the edge of the compote, in a center motif, on the underside of the bowl, and the edge if the foot. The red, yellow and gold details are all hand painted. The body of the piece is slightly bluish and there is light blue glaze pooling under the edge of the bowl as well as the underside of the foit.
This is a large piece measuring 10 1/4” diameter, 11 1/2” at the handles and 3” height. The foot is 6 1/4” across. The bottom is well marked with man on horseback, “Egyptian” in a banner, a hard to decipher monogram (W A N?), and “41” all in a blue under glaze. There is a decorator’s number in red. I have not been able to identify the maker. Dates to pre-1850. I believe it’s American but it could be British.
Immaculate piece in excellent condition. I see one tiny glaze pop on the rim and the usual flecks of stray glaze. Fabulous piece ready to be a centerpiece on your table.
