Two Worcester bowls, circa 1780-1785
Both printed with the rare variant of the 'Mother and Child' pattern with an additional standing figure holding a flower pot, the reverse of each bowl printed with 'La Terre' pattern of a kneeling Chinese figure and a 'Long Eliza' by a tall jardinière, the interiors printed with pomegranates and vines in a basket, 11.5cm and 15.1cm diam, crescent marks (2)


  • These interesting prints are discussed by Branyan, French and Sandon, patterns II.A.12 and II.A.13. The small size of bowl with the additional figure prints is particularly unusual
