The bright colors of these English "Japan" pattern porcelains make them perennial favorites. Meant to mimic the Asian ceramics such as Imari, they usually have all-over floral patterns in cobalt, rust, pink, green and gilt.
This is a large, flat bottom bowl with a narrow rim. The rim has a slight gutter, but not enough to securely place a lid. That, combined with the lack of wear indicates that this was not equipped with a lid originally.
A large showy piece for your shelf of "Japan" porcelains.
Unmarked, but probably English ca. 1825
Size: Approximately 10.375" diameter, 1.875" deep
Condition: Wear to gilt edge No chips, cracks or repairs.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
