Delve into the elegance of 18th-century English craftsmanship with this exquisite circa 1790 Bow Porcelain saucer. Hailing from the renowned Bow Porcelain Factory, this piece is a testament to the period's affinity for Chinese-inspired designs that were highly sought after by the European market.


The saucer features the distinctive powder blue glaze, a revered technique that originated in the Jiangxi province of China. This particular shade was achieved through the meticulous mixing of cobalt oxide with water before applying it to the porcelain, followed by a clear glaze that enhances the deep, rich color. The scalloped edges add a touch of sophistication, embodying the Rococo style that was en vogue during the late 1700s.


Central to its charm is the delicate floral motif, a classic representation of natural beauty, with each petal and leaf carefully hand-painted to contrast beautifully against the powder blue background. The craftsmanship reflects the era's deep appreciation for nature and artistry.

This saucer not only embodies the aesthetic preferences of the Georgian era but also stands as a relic of the Bow Porcelain Factory's brief yet impactful existence from 1747 to 1776. As one of the first porcelain manufacturers in England, Bow pieces are now rare collectors' items, revered for their historical value and artistry.


This particular saucer is an excellent addition for collectors and enthusiasts of antique ceramics, offering a slice of history and timeless elegance. Its condition is consistent with age and use, bearing witness to its journey through time. Add this piece to your collection and own a fragment of the rich tapestry of English porcelain history.
