Here is an amazing find even in this condition, a true antique and a slice of history, a hand painted covered vegetable bowl made between 1850 and 1867 made by one of England’s oldest manufacturers Copeland when it was just W.T.Copeland, before it became Spode. Occasionally we find some plates and teacups from this era, but something like this is so unusual to find intact. Beautifully hand decorated almost an oriental version of the old Pembroke design which is even on the inside of the bowl, the colors are still quite vivid. You can imagine the grandparents of the Downton Abbey crowd using this. That’s how old this is.
The vegetable bowl measures 10″ in diameter including the handles and 5″ high. It is in fair vintage condition considering its age ,has some chips on the underside of the lip of the lid and handles, some wear and scuffs, and some cracks on the stand, tried to show these in the photos, but remember it is over 150 years old. How are you going to look after 150 years!
Please look at the photos closely as they are part of the description and you can see how great this looks.
