Presented for sale is a fine pair of early 19th century (circa 1820) hand painted Coalport soup bowls in an Imari pattern. These bowls come from the estate of famous Toronto resident and antique collector Budd Sugarman. The bowls are decorated with unusual colors for that time period at Coalport, namely a light orange seen bordering the flowers and shades of green in the trailing leaves.
The mastery of the Coalport artists is evident in the flurry of leaves and vines presented on these bowls. They were produced during the John Rose period, when Coalport set a precedent for all British tableware manufacturers that came later.
The bowls are in excellent condition, as if they have sat in cabinets to be admired for most of their long lives.
Size: 9 ¾” Diameter.
