Antique Soup Tureen Flying Bird Pattern


The flying bird pattern has been much sought after since it was first made in England, circa 1813. It is a lively, colorful pattern featuring a longtailed bird flying above a flower filled garden. The pattern showcases the exceptional and enduring charm of chinoiserie decoration. The colors are an unexpected combination of purple, pink, yellow, orange, blue and green. Made by Davenport this tureen and stand has eye-catching deep cobalt blue finials, handles and trim which are decorated with lustrous gold. The bottom of the tureen has blue printed Davenport factory marks. This tureen would be a wonderful item placed on an oval or rectangular dining room table. History In 1785, John Davenport began as a potter working with Thomas Wolfe of Stoke. In 1794, he acquired his own pottery at Longport and began producing cream-colored blue-printed earthenware. By September 1806 the quality of his porcelain and pottery wares was such that the Prince of Wales, later to become King George IV, ordered Davenport services.
