Antique Bow Porcelain Tankard, England Mid-18th Century

$2,400Asking Price

About

We are pleased to offer this magnificent Bow Porcelain tankard. Bow porcelains are some of the earliest English porcelains. Our piece is a tall Bow Porcelain tankard dating from the mid-18th century, 1755-1758. It features a profusion of delicately modeled prunus flower sprigs on the exterior. Though the mug is completely white, these flowers stand out beautifully because they are sculpted in sharp relief, and because the glaze has pooled around them creating a faint gray-blue color. Like this mug, Bow Porcelain mugs are generally characterized by flat unglazed bases with a double scratch mark, and a blued glaze which pools giving a 'thundercloud' effect where thick: around the top, at the impressed decoration, and at the base. Bow Porcelain is soft-paste porcelain. Condition: Excellent. Dimensions: Diameter 4.38 inches x height 6.25 inches Price: $2,400.
