A New Hall hard paste porcelain tea bowl and saucer decorated in black monochrome enamel, some collectors refer to this decoration as "en grisaille". The hand painted pattern consists of a central high handled floral basket with scattered flowers around it. The border is made up of a hand painted dotted line and narrow bands to the rim above a wavy dotted floral swag border. Although this example is unmarked it is the New Hall pattern number 308.
This tea bowl and saucer date from the late 18th century, circa 1790 to 1800 in the Georgian period, George III was the monarch on the throne at the time. Made by the New Hall Porcelain Company of New Hall Shelton, Staffordshire, England, who operated from 1782–1835.
The tea bowl is 2 inches (51 mm) high by 3 1/2 inches (84 mm) diameter. The saucer has a diameter of 5 1/4 inches (133 mm) and a deep curved side stands 1 1/4 inches (32 mm) high. They weigh 176 g unpacked.
They are in excellent antique condition. There is some extremely minor wear to the enamel, some of the usual minor fritting and the tea bowl has a very small chip to the foot rim, possibly from manufacture. Please see the images.
This is a great item for any collector of antique English 18th century tea bowls and saucers, black monochrome ware, en grisaille paintings, floral patterns or New Hall porcelain.
