Masons Patent Ironstone Punch Bowl Bamboo and Basket Pattern c 1813 13" Diameter
A relatively rare, large, early 19th century, Regency period, hand coloured and transfer printed 'Bamboo and Basket' pattern footed Mason's ironstone punch bowl which is 13 1/4 inches (33.6 cm) in diameter and 6 inches (15 cm) high.
The outside of the bowl has three equally spaced repeated patterns of the long handled oriental basket with flowers and a hollow blue rock with bamboo and peony growing from it. The same pattern is also in the centre of the bowl with a floral and lappet border.
It has the earliest transfer printed mark underneath with the crowned ribbon Patent Ironstone China . This is the mark of George Miles and Charles James Mason who traded as G. M. and C. J. Mason and operated from the Minerva Works, Lane Delph, Staffordshire, England from 1813 until 1829. The Bowl dates from circa 1813-15. See mark 24 on page 111 of Mason Porcelain and Ironstone 1796 - 1853 by Reginald Haggar and Elizabeth Adams.
This lovely punch bowl dates from around 1813 to 1815. It is in excellent antique condition. No chips cracks nor restoration, small amount of glaze crazing and some discolouration in the bottom of the bowl. Some minor enamel and gilding wear, commensurate with age and use. Please see the images.
This pattern is listed as pattern 11840 on the Transferware Collectors Club database. The Masons Collectors Club refer to this as pattern OD5.
