The New Hall factory had become famous for their production of elegant tea wares for the middle class English market by the end of the eighteenth century, taking the market share away from the other prominent manufacturers such as Worcester and Caughley. New Hall, had produced a new 'hybrid' porcelain, not a hard paste like those of German and Chinese manufacturers, but a paste that was more suited to tea wares than the body materials used by other English producers. Many of the New Hall designs were in the Chinese taste, emulating the Chinese export ware that had become so popular in England during this period.

This slops bowl is certainly in the Chinese taste. It is decorated in the striking enamel paints, with the so called 'boy chasing butterfly' design; a charming and elegant pattern. This painted scene of a young boy in front of two noble gentlemen, with his arms out stretched in an attempt to capture a blue butterfly. The boy and the butterfly is repeated in the base of the slops bowl.
