William Brownfield was one of the big six Staffordshire pottery manufacturers in the second half of the nineteenth century. This placed it alongside Copeland, Davenport, Minton, Ridgway (Brown Westhead-More), and Wedgwood. The Cobridge pottery factory went into final voluntary liquidation in 1900 and has long been forgotten.
This beautiful bowl holds 10 cups and would be perfect for that chili or soup! We purchased it filled with sea shells and it looked great!!! The pinkish orange from the shells were perfect with this piece. The piece has two handle and sits on four feet and has a wonderful peachy taupe and brown polychrome finish. The handles have three colorful flowers decorating the ends and brown accents. A wreath of brown transfers resembling worm tracks surrounds this central of the body. A narrow orange & brown geometrical pattern is place underneath this and a band of overlapping flower placed around the rim. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
