Lot Details
A selection of 'clobbered' wares
circa 1780-1820
comprising: a bowl and a teabowl with underglaze blue landscapes heavily overpainted (chipped), a Dehua octagonal beaker with added flower panels, another with embossed prunus picked out in colours on a lime green (small chips enamelled-over), a plate with a simple famille rose border and added floral centre (one minute chip), and another lobed dish (broken) (6),

Footnotes

  • The crude enamelled wares from the end of the 18th century were of little interest to Bernard Watney who acquired just a few examples. Some white blanc de chine ware from 100 years before was decorated in bold colours, but it was mostly old-fashioned blue and white that attracted the attention of a new generation of china painters. Similar clobbering on Worcester and other English porcelain indicates that this type of overpainting began around 1780. A wider range of colours was used in the 19th century.
