Wonderful antique early 19th Century Gaudy Welsh footed bowl! This bowl was made between 1820-1850 in England. The pattern is known as "Grapes" and consists of the typical orange and blue copper luster interspersed with green leaves and gold luster sprays. The exterior of the bowl has an impressed scroll pattern with "pearls" or beads. It measures 8 1/8" top diameter and stands 4 3/8" tall. The bowl is in overall good antique condition with some wear to the center bottom; there are 2 firing hairlines along the rim as shown--these were done "in the making" and we must remember that antique pottery was fired in the kiln under primitive conditions and flaws due to temperature fluctuation are common. the bowl is unmarked though there is a small diamond impressed as shown in the photo. This is a wonderful old piece, sure to appeal to collectors of Gaudy Welsh and antique English ceramics.
The bowl weighs 2 1/4 lbs before packing, and very careful packing shipping will be via USPS Priority Mail.
