More jewel than porcelain, this exquisite soup bowl possesses all of the features which made Flight & Barr, including its predecessors and successors, favorites among British royalty. It is a hand painted work of art featuring reserves of flower stems and leaves surrounded by black netting within bands of concentric amethyst borders. The center of bowl recapitulates the larger motifs with excellent use of gilding. The bowl is nearly pristine. The back stamped with various marks, including the incised B of the 1792-1807 period. The regal stature of this bowl is rarely matched.
