AESTHETIC BROWN TRANSFERWARE WASTE BOWL
Wallis Gimson Potteries
This large rarely seen Victorian aesthetic 5 3/4 " wide x 3 1/2 " tall waste bowl is transfer printed in dark chocolate brown. It was used in victorian times for the disposal of the dregs of tea.
The clear and crisp GARFIELD pattern features a fantastic wide, busy band of Japanesque cartouches and alternating geometric flourishes with butterflies hidding among the flowers. Cascading cabbage roses.
The pattern displays the victorian eras love of nature and travel to exotic lands.
The piece is marked on the underside with an impressed registration mark, the pattern name the intials L.S. & S. and the Beehive trademark that identifies the maker as Wallis Gimson, a pottery maker working in Fenton in the Staffordshire region of England from 1884-1890.
The piece is in good condition, appears to have never been used. There are no chips and no repairs. It is absolutely gorgeous - elegant and well potted, with richly detailed transfers reflecting the Victorian love of nature and the exotic.
