This rare and decorative matching tea bowl and saucer (handleless cup)was produced in England during the early 19th century, circa 1810. This is an extremely uncommon piece. The blue and white transferware design depicts a vase framed within a decorative strapwork border full of floral sprays. We particularly like the addition of the large phoenix/hoho type bird that’s sits above the vase. We have not seen another example like this. The late previous owner, a seasoned porcelain dealer and collector, attributed this to the Ridgway factory.
This is a fine example of a piece of early English Pearlware. This is the perfect item for a collector; we are experienced in this field and have not seen another example like it.
