Pierced Creamware Bowl with Cover 18th Century England Circa 1780


Made in Staffordshire or Yorkshire, England, circa 1780, this pierced, covered creamware bowl was made for serving fruits, nuts, or sweets. The cover has intricate, expertly crafted handmade piercings in the form of hearts, dots, and diamonds (see images). The delicate, all-around, pierced decoration is outstanding. A fabulous rose finial tops the cover. The bowl has impressed ribbing around the base and impressed fluting around the lower half.
For an image and description, see Creamware and Other English Pottery at Temple Newsam House, Leeds, by Peter Walton pgs.107-108, where Walton states, “Pale cream with a pale green glaze…on a high spreading foot the lower part of the body fluted, the upper part plain with a turned ribbed border at the rim, the domed lid with panels of pierced openwork…and with large flower-knob with leaf and bud terminal.”

Dimensions: 6″ diameter x 6.25″ tall
