Salopian Slops Bowl, 'Waisted' Spiral Moulded Body, Underglaze Cobalt Blue with Gilt Decoration, c1795

(p1235)

A most attractive Salopian slops bowl, with a spiral 'shanked' moulded body decorated with underglaze blue and rich honey coloured gilding, c1795. I am not sure of the manufacturer, it is possibly Caughley, or Coalport. It does not have a manufacturer's mark. Certainly it is of a soapstone type body and dates from c1795.

There are three blue bell flower sprigs spaced evenly around the main body, these executed in underglaze blue with applied rich honey coloured gilding. Above these flowers is a garland of blue dots joined by gilt foliage.

A gilt line runs around the foot rim of the bowl. The glaze is rather a thick glaze and there is a bit of pooling of glaze on the foot rim.

Inside the bowl around the top edge is an attractive wide border of underglaze cobalt blue, on which is a vine and berry designed garland within two gilt lines.

At the bottom of the inside of the bowl there is an underglaze blue and gilt stylised flower head.   

This is an attractive Salopian Slops Bowl, 'Waisted' Spiral Moulded Body, Underglaze Cobalt Blue with Gilt Decoration, c1795

Condition:

This slops bowl is in good condition with no chips, cracks, repairs or restoration. The only minor imperfection is some very slight wear to the gilding, especially the high points on the scalloped rim.

During manufacture there is a smudge of blue on the foot rim and some pooling of the glaze also around the foot. This is still a fine Eighteenth century slops bowl.
