A pale blue, octagonal shaped, low fire ceramic sugar bowl with matching lid and an idyllic design of a peacock at a fountain.
A molded low fired octagonal ceramic has been decorated with a pale blue transfer pattern of an exotic location with a peacock and fountain in the foreground and tall spire like mountains in the distance. This is possibly a reference to India. There is a grape and leaf border at the mouth. The bowl has a matching octagonal shaped lid with button finial and two floral handles. The mouth of the bowl and the lid have matching flanges and fit perfectly together.
The base glaze is a thin off white glaze with a fine crazing. The base has a low foot that is partially unglazed. The base is glazed.
The number one “1” is impressed in the center of the base.
7 ½” (19.0 cm) tall x 6” (15.2 cm) wide x 5 ½” (14.0 cm) diameter. Weighs 1 lb 14.3 oz (860 g)
There are no chips, cracks, or breaks. There are kiln flaws such as blue smudges, blue spots and tiny reserves. There are a couple of brown stains on the inside lid, lid grape edge and on the mouth flange.
