Bow Porcelain Chinoiserie Tankard.

Bow Porcelain Chinoiserie Tankard,

Bow, London,


(Ref: NY9033/IAMR)

The unusually painted polychrome Bow porcelain tankard depicts Chinoiserie figures sitting around a low table with a porcelain vase with flowers in the center and a large famille rose bird perched on a branch.

Dimensions: 6 inches high x 5 3/4 inches wide acroos handles x 4 inch diameter.

Reference: Made in New Canton: Bow Porcelain From The Collection of The London Borough of Newham, Anton, Gabszewicz, Page 61, #50 for a Famille Rose Baluster Cream-Jug, circa 1765 with Chinese figure before a tree.  The treatment of the tree with brown marking on the branches is extremely similar as is the colouration of the Chinese figure.
