A rare American Historical Staffordshire Soup Bowl in red or pink transfer showing the “Headwaters of the Juniata” River (in central Pennsylvania). The bowl’s maker is Adams, and it dates c. 1830. The bowl is large, 10 ¼” in diameter, with a broad, flat rim. It pictures a very funky footbridge over the Juniata River and has a typical Adams flower and medallion border. It has a printed cartouche with eagle and wreath on the back and a faintly impressed Adams mark.

The bowl is in excellent condition, almost as if it just came out of the shipping barrel. The color is strong and the glaze shiny. There are no chips, cracks, lines or restorations, and no utensil marks. Some evidence of underglaze kiln schmootz on the back, but nothing distracting on the front. A very nice and very hard to find American transfer.
