Lot Details
An interesting English Porcelain bough pot
circa 1799-1808
Of narrow D-shape with twin handles, painted in sepia monochrome with a circular panel of a couple walking on the drive of a country house set within a wooded park, probably by William Billingsley, reserved on a bright yellow ground moulded with basketweave, within gilded neoclassical borders, 13.5cm high, base inscribed 'Taplow Lodge Bucks' in sepia script (cover lacking, some restoration)

Footnotes

  • Provenance: Godden Reference Collection. A number of other pieces are recorded with similar sepia monochrome painting of country houses, including the coffee pot from the Dr Boot service illustrated by C L Exley, A History of the Torksey and Mansfield China Manufactories (1970), p 27, a jug dated 1806, and on another service left at Derby by Billingsley in 1808. See also the fine part service sold in these rooms on 9 March 2005, lots 242 and 243, painted with views of Park Hall near Mansfield Woodhouse. The architecture is treated in a highly distinctive manner, shallow pitched roofs, simply represented windows and realistic proportion all being features. It would seem likely that this lot was painted by William Billingsley at Mansfield between 1799 and 1802 or at Brampton-in-Torksey between 1803 and 1808
