Lovely pair of early antique English matching printed porcelain bowls decorated with strawberry lusterware / lustreware trim and pink / puce / magenta printed scenes of mother and child rustic landscapes. Unmarked as early pieces often were. We have seen similar items described as pearlware porcelain made in Staffordshire, England circa early to mid 1800's. The printed decor is inspired by Adam Buck, a Regency illustrator and miniature painter. In the 19th Century luster / lustre tea sets were often displayed under gaslights on mirrored trays to enhance their metallic sheen. In good used condition as shown. Matching teapot, creamer, open sugar bowl, and ten cups and saucers and bowls listed separately. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
Measurements: 8" diameter by 1.6" deep (20 cm diameter by 4 cm deep) approximately.
