PEARLWARE Miniature Toy Dinner Set Tureen Flowing Berries Rogers 1830 Flow Blue

Rare Child's Pearlware Doll Dinner Service Veg Tureen

FLOWING BERRIES & FLOWERS

John Rogers Staffordshire, England c. 1830

This is a very rare miniature toy vegetable serving bowl or tureen base made as part of an early doll's dinner service for child's play or to accessorize an elegant pre-Victorian dollhouse. The tiny square bowl measures 2-3/4 inches in diameter with flared rim and cut foot, printed in a brilliant cobalt blue against a creamware blank, finished with pearlware glaze decorated with an overall sheet print of berries and flowers. The pattern is illustrated and described in Doris Lechler's book "English Toy China" (fig. 203).

The plate is unmarked but is on a blank commonly attributed to Hackwood and to Rogers, both esteemed pottery manufacturers in the Staffordshire region of England in the early part of the 19th century. Lechler refers to the pattern name as FLOWING BERRIES AND FLOWERS.

In overall good condition with some old grundge and flaking on the foot rim but no chips cracks or repairs. Tiny stilt marks, smudges on back, tiny imperfections original to the making. Discoloration on the back sdide , not seen on the front. A hard to find example, a perfect addition to an advanced collection of miniature pearlware. Sold as is.
