Very Large Gildea & Walker Staffordshire Pottery Punch Bowl, circa 1885



The transfer decorated pottery bowl with its interior decorated with five drunken Bacchic putti beneath a frieze of other frolicking and drunken Bacchic putti, the similarly decorated exterior raised on an elaborate sea life base moulded with three figural dolphins, shells, weed and coral. It has beautiful crazing to the whole and the colors remain quite bright and there are no major losses. The company, Bates, Gildea and Walker were in operation between 1878 to 1881 at the Dale Hall Works, Longport, Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent. Prior to this, the company was called Bates, Walker & Co (1875-78) and subsequently, it became Gildea and Waler (1881-85). Items by Gildea and Wilder are often intricately patterned and hard to find. This piece can be seen in British Pottery by Geoffrey A. Godden, page 268.
