English Delftware punch bowl and cover

Image attached to C.1716 & A-C-1928

An image of English Delftware. Punch bowl with three-part cover. Liverpool Factory. The bowl itself rests on a high domed foot and is painted round the outside with a Chinese landscape, with pavilions on rocks, trees and flying birds, below a border of formal foliage; a similar landscape on the foot. Inside, the arms of Liverpool with the motto 'DEUS.NOBIS.HAEC.OTIA.FECIT'; symmetrical scroll ornaments round the side. The lower part of the lid is domed and painted with similar Chinese landscapes below a panelled border; it has in the middle of it a deep depression forming a small bowl which is covered by the second lid; this supports a third small receptacle, also covered by means of the uppermost lid which ends in a bulbous knob (whole lid is a replacement). Both upper lids are painted with Chinese landscapes; the lower one of them is inscribed inside: 'THOMAS BOOTLE ESQUIRE MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT FOR LIVERPOOLE 1724'. Earthenware, thrown in parts, tin-glazed and painted in cobalt blue, height, whole, 59 cm, diameter, bowl, 35.5 cm, dated 1724. Oriental Style.
