J&W Ridgway Porcelain Bowl Painted Floral Royal Pattern circa 1825 Antique
A beautifully decorated English porcelain bowl ornately gilded and hand painted with four equally spaced polychrome floral sprays and a central pink rose. The ornate gilding consists of a concave edged octagonal central section linked with four trailing grape vines with leaves and tendrils emanating from a band of sixteen crescent scrolls with "eyelashes" surmounted with "four leaf clover" and dots and an outer band.
Although there is no makers marks nor pattern number on it this bowl was originally from an "Fluted Old English" or "Royal" pattern tea service that was made by John and William Ridgway of the Cauldon Place Works, Shelton (Hanley) in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, England circa 1825. Please see the coffee cans and plates listed seperately.
The bowl is in very good condition with no chips cracks nor restoration. There is some extremely minor rubbing to the gilding commensurate with age and use. This is a very decorative antique porcelain bowl or slop basin for any collector of Ridgway or Regency to late Georgian period English porcelain from the early 19th century.
