Antique Staffordshire Canary Yellow Pottery Hand Painted Bowl c1820 (Code 1586)
An early 19th century Staffordshire region 'canary' yellow pottery bowl. These bright yellow earthenware pieces are associated with production in the Staffordshire potteries around 1810-30, although relatively little authoritative detail is readily available. A number of styles are found, often painted as with this example and there are definite similarities between some referenced items suggesting they come from the same factory. The pottery body is quite fine and thin walled and has more the feel of porcelain rather than earthenware. The profile of the base and foot matches cups from the period, and this example also features a wavy rim. The simplistic but well executed painting is certainly complimentary. There are of course no makers marks, non seem to exist for these pieces.
Some wear and loss of the paint. Glaze thin around some of the edges, perhaps part through wear or from manufacture. Two scratches internally to the wall opposing each other, possibly a manufacturing condition. Tripod spur marks to interior from firing (upside down in the kiln). Minor production flaws, kiln dust etc as typical for this period.
