Paint Decorated Transferware Earthenware Bowl PARROT Minton Staffordshire England 1853

This is spectacular hand painted transferware bowl or deep cabinet plate or rack plate, originally part of a series pre-dating the famous Naturalist and Bird series, the colorful parrot engraving dates to c1853. The deep plate or bowl measures 9 5/8" in diameter transfer printed and overpainted in earthy tones of brown gold and green, creating a realistic and detailed picture of a large parrot on a tree limb. The theme of the series is naturalist engravings, the parrot being a very scarce and desirable bird to find in such large and elegant images to entertain. Most likely designed by William Coleman or Pierre Mallet, trained naturalists, etcher and illustrators who worked for Minton and specialized in bird and insect motifs .

The plate is marked Minton with a year stamp for 1853. A paint decorators and series mark C1713 might be deciphered by a Minton expert. Minton was a prolific and successful pottery maker that began in the early 19th century pottery manufactory in Stoke in the Staffordshire region of England.

The bowl is in overall very good condition with a fine stable interior age line to the right of the parrot's head (hard to see except on close inspection) and no other chips, cracks, or repairs. Light wear and mild crazing consistent with age. The bowl is sturdy and well potted and the amusing illustration was etched and printed with great deal of attention to detail. Offered as is, a hard to come by pattern is a must-have bowl for any advanced Minton Naturalist or transferware collector.
