Lunds Bristol Very Early Worcester Creamboat c1752


Out of stock

A very rare polychrome decorated creamboat c1752. This creamboat is made from a mould known to be used by Benjamin Lunds in Bristol. However it is decorated in Polychrome. The body of the creamboat is different to early Worcester c1752-53 that I have handled making me believe this creamboat was made in Bristol rather than in Worcester. It may have been decorated in London or at the Worcester factory at the time of takeover.

Please see the Origins of Worcester Porcelain by Ray Jones Available here Where these early creamboats are discussed.

A Blue and white decorated creamboat with the same moulding was sold at Bonhams another was sold in the US at Doyles and another (marked Bristoll) is illustrated in Lunds Bristol and Early Worcester Porcelain by Simon Spero.

This creamboat measures 10.4cm in diameter including the handle and stands 5.5cm tall at the thumb rest.

It is in excellent condition without damage or restoration. There is a firing crack to the foot from manufacture.
