BLUE TRANSFERWARE WASH BASIN
Edge Malkim and Co Potteries
This 19th century wash basin is transfer printed in dark brilliant blue with a pearlware glaze. The large basin bowl is 14 1/4 " in diameter and stands 4 3/4 " tall. One of the best and brightest blue color we have seen during this period.
This exceptional pattern features a large Bluebird in flight surrounded by a plethora of vines, blossoms and exotic foliage. Spectacular !
The piece is marked on the underside with the pattern name that identifies the maker as Edge and Malkin, a pottery maker working in the Staffordshire region of England during the 19th century.
The piece is in very good condition, clean shiny and bright. A short tight hairline crack off the rim barely noticeable. It is absolutely gorgeous - elegant and well potted, with richly detailed transfers reflecting the Victorian love of nature.
