18th Century Blue And White Transferware Porcelain Bowl English Circa 1795
This is a wonderful example of a late 18th century English porcelain blue and white bowl made during the reign of George III. The underglaze blue Chinoiserie pattern is transfer printed and was made to imitate the very expensive Chinese porcelain of the period. The transfer printing is clear and crisp unlike the earlier examples of transfer printing with blurred designs. The interior of the bowl features the Nanking spear and post border with gilt rim decoration. Like most porcelain of this late 18th century period this bowl is unmarked. We suspect that this is most likely a New Hall porcelain example. It has the most beautiful ring when tapped gently.
Measuring diameter – 6 ½ Inch by height – 3 Inch.
The bowl is in very good condition for its age, there is a small 1 inch Y shaped crazing line to the base. The gilding to the rim is worn. There is some minor surface wear on the inside of the bowl consummate with use. This is a truly multipurpose item that would look at home alongside any collection of blue and white porcelain. We see it holding your favorite pot pourri or a selection of seasonal fruit.
