An exceptional Lund's Bristol or early Worcester bowl
circa 1750-52
Of plain circular shape, painted in bright blue with a very stylised Chinese riverscape including a hut on an island with cloud-like rocks and a series of dark mountain peaks, groups of 'floating rocks' and a sampan on the reverse and a 'full moon' and flying birds overhead beneath a panelled diaper border, about 16.5cm diam (some glaze wear only)

Footnotes

  • No other bowl of this type is recorded and indeed, this piece is unique in a number of respects. The decoration lacks the sophistication of early Worcester blue and white and while the heavy blurring is characteristic of Lund's Bristol, the general appearance is more primitive than most Bristol decoration. This might imply that this bowl belongs in the experimental phase of the Worcester factory prior to the merger with Lund's.
