This antique Ridgway Yeddo brown transferware chamber pot is a fabulous example of pre-1880 Ridgway Sparks Ridgway pottery. Made in England during The Aesthetic Period, this piece features the most wonderful & whimsical pattern, young Japanese boys practicing shooting with a bow an arrow using a bowl of fruit as a target. The scenic background features ornate exotic buildings and palm trees and the rim and handle have a repetitive geometric pattern and and the base has dimensional ridges that are also geometric in design. This pattern is executed in the favored ivory body / brown transfer combination of the period and measures 10 inches across including the handle and is 5 inches high. Ridgway Sparks Ridgway dissolved the partnership at the end of 1879. The piece is in fantastic condition with no cracks, chips, flakes, crazing or repairs that I can see. There are the usual kiln marks and a couple of transferware bleed marks, all pictured. I do love chamber pots and use them as vases and to hold floating candles and as serving pieces. I've used them to hold guest towels and even given them as gifts filled with fancy hand towels and toiletries and with teas and coffee and biscotti and cookies. This is a charming chamber pot and it will delight for another century or so.
