This delightful porcelain coffee can was produced by the New Hall porcelain company in England and dates to the early 19th century, circa 1815. This George III era coffee can features a classical Adam Buck bat printed pattern depicting a devoted mother playing with her child.
Bat Printing was a complicated technique that was developed during the early 19th century and had died away circa 1820. The print was applied to a glue bat in tiny little dots and then applied over the glazed porcelain article.
Adam Buck (b 1759–d 1833) was a celebrated Irish neo-classical portraitist, miniature painter and engraver. One can easily see how Regency home owners adored this sepia tone pattern back in 1815.
This is a top quality, opulent little coffee can. This would make the perfect addition to your pottery and porcelain collection. Please see our collection of Adam Buck inspired porcelain listed separately in our store.
