A special find for the collector of antique English ceramics -- a turn-of-the-century, large, Porcelain ENGLISH BOUGH POT (Bulb Bowl) in an unusual shape, and beautifully decorated. Against a cobalt semi-matte-glaze ground, the tall pedestal bowl has a gilt and raised enamel butterfly on both the front and the back, on either side of the butterflies appears raised enamel blossoms, outlined in gilt; the removable lid continues the raised enamel and gilt decoration. Gilt bands also border all rims.
CONDITION: Very good, with wear on the interior from use and age (including some loss of pigment and a little rust in bottom, surface scratches); minor gilt losses, and one small flake at the base rim; crazing on the base, only.
The piece measures about 9-1/4" diameter, 6" tall overall.
Marked in green underglaze with the Unicorn mark, "Made in England," "H&K Tunstall". The date of the mark is 1890-1900, and we suggest it is closer to 1900.
An enviable item for the fine collection.
