This English chinoiserie porcelain waste bowl is from a tea set made by Hilditch & Son, a Staffordshire firm. It's diameter is 5-1/2" (12.5 cm), and height is 2-3/4" (7 cm).
Although it is unmarked we have had other matching pieces of the set which were marked with the H & S for Hilditch & Son, a Staffordshire firm. It is Godden's mark 2027, and dates the bowl c. 1822-30.
The matching teapot can be seen on page 268 of "An Anthology of British Teapots" by Miller & Berthoud. Their date is c. 1825. The pattern is shown in Davis' book "Chinoiserie", and he calls this pattern "C Scroll'.
One of the 3 vignettes on the bowl is decorated with a giant farmer plowing with the world's smallest ox. The second shows a man showing a flower to a child holding a parasol, and the third shows a dancing dog and a boy holding bells over its head. The main color is a sort of brick red transfer, and there are overglaze enamels of green, yellow, and more brick red.
The bowl is in very good condition. Although it has a spider crack in the base it still rings when tapped. There are no other cracks, no chips, crazing or repairs. There is a spot of light discoloration on the white inner rim of the bowl.
