Blue Transfer-ware Vegetable Compote "American Marine" Pattern

Francis Morley (& Co.), Broad Street, Shelton, Hanley, Staffordshire Potteries, was operational from 1845-1858. Formerly Ridgway & Morley and subsequently Morley & Ashworth. It's likely that the '& Co' was Samuel Asbury who Francis Morley was in partnership with both in Shelton, Stoke-on-Trent and Philadelphia, North America. This partnership was dissolved in December 1852.

This fabulous, elongated, octagonal, blue transfer-ware vegetable compote is the "American Marine" pattern. The piece is covered with different nautical scenes in the center of the compote and cartouches along the border of the bowl as well as on the exterior and pedestal. A robe edging frames and separates the individual cartouches. The vegetable compote measures 11 1/2" in length, 8 1/4" in width and 3" in height. It is stamped with a nautical scene, ribbon with the pattern "American Marine" and "F M & Co". There are no cracks, chips or repairs. A small brown spot in the center of the bowl under the glaze and thought to have happened in manufacture. The underside of the pedestal shows some minor, no harm, staining. A stunning pattern on an early transfer-ware piece.
