On offer is an English porcelain bowl by the factory of Anthony Keeling dating from 1795 to 1811. The decoration is of Chinese style house scenes transferprinted in blue and this piece is from the Geoffrey Godden reference collection recently deaccessioned. The potting is rather heavy and is of a hybrid hard paste type. Porcelain items from this factory are less common and frequently rather difficult to discern. This large bowl is also perfectly usable.
Dimensions: Diameter is 8 1/2" and the height is about 1 3/4".
Condition: Excellent. There are no chips or cracks and there is no restoration. The glaze is smooth and unworn and the print is clear. The foot rim has a few small smudges from when it was made as shown and as was common for such items.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing flaw or repair. While this is normal and to be expected, I note any known issues in the condition description.
