Rare Pearlware Transferware Waste Bowl
Staffordshire England c1840
This gorgeous transfer printed waste bowl was originally part of a complete tea service. The bowl stands 3-1/4 inches tall on a raised pedestal base, and measures 6-1/4 inches across the top scalloped rim. The color is a rich sepia brown with a pearlware glaze.
The elegant bowl is elaborately decorated. The inside bottom shows a children playing with a pet Peacock, the bird's fancy cage opened in a pastoral setting with a castle in the background. The inside border alternates exotic birds with floral scrolling which repeats on a larger scale around the perimeter. The decoration is very rich, with very little white space remaining. The pattern name and maker is unknown, though it surely hails fromn Staffordshire England 1830-40. The bottom of the bowl is marked with pattern name on maker’s backstamp.
The bowl is in great condition, with no chips cracks or repairs. Manufacturing imperfections – transfer smudges, stilt marks – all original to the making. An uncommon example with a striking imagery and shell border, an outstanding addition to any collection.
