Image attached to C.4 & A-1915

An image of Cream Bowl. James and Charles Whitehead (manufacturer, probably); Daniel & Brown (decorator, probably). The circular bowl has an ogee profile and stands on a domed spreading foot. The domed cover is also of ogee outline and has an aperture in the rim for a spoon, and a large rose-shaped knob on a stalk with three leaves and two buds. The outer edge of the foot, the lower part of the bowl and the upper part of the cover are decorated with zones of turned bands resembling basket-work, and the cover has a pierced repeating border of four-petal flowers separated by a lozenge with a circle above and below. The cover and bowl have a brown edge, borders of a yellow band between two brown, and an inner border of brown formal leaves alternating with a berry on stalk. There are horizontal brown bands on either side of the turning on the foot and cover, and above the turning on the bowl. The knob is dabbed with yellow and brown. Cream-coloured earthenware, thrown, turned, pierced, and painted in yellow and brown enamels, height, whole, 28 cm, diameter, cover, 22.3 cm, diameter, bowl, 21.2 cm, circa 1795-1810. Staffordshire, England. Neoclassical.
