Cambrian Blue & White Transfer Pearlware Bowl Bridgeless Chinoiserie c 1800
A blue and white transfer printed deep footed pearlware bowl from the early 19th century with an unusual border pattern and a central bridgeless Chinoiserie pattern or Hermit pattern This type of central pattern was made by a number of manufacturers including Davenport, Ralph Stevenson and Benjamin Godwin, John Geddes, Minton. The rim is enamelled in ochre, a feature copied from the earlier Chinese Batavian wares. The deep straight sided foot stand 1 1/8 inches high.
The inner and outer borders have quite an unusual variation of the Chinese based border pattern to that which was used by a lot manufacturers. The border pattern on this bowl is very similar to that shown on a bowl on the Transferware Collectors Club Database # 736 with a central print of Admiral Lord Nelson however, in the example offered here the large butterflies have been replaced with a rectangular geometric floral pattern. This bowl is attributed to the Cambrian Pottery of George Haynes in Swansea, Glamorgan, South Wales. See Swansea’s Cambrian Pottery Transferware and Other Welsh Examples by Arleen and Grahame Tanner.
