Creamware Pottery Sailor's Farewell Bowl,

Circa 1800-20.

The large polychrome creamware bowl has a scene to one side depicting a sailor's farewell.  The officer, with a sword in a scabbard to his right hip, stands with arms crossed and his female companion looks away from him as she holds a parasol in her hand.  In the background in a Royal Navy frigate at anchor and a sailor in a longboat rowing towards him.

To the reverse side is a charming Chinoiserie scene of two women and a young boy watching a child bring a potted plant towards them.  Between the scenes is a pagoda to one side and  a plant to the other.  Below the Chinoiserie scene on the footrim, a previous owner has made a small hole in the foot so that it can be hung.
