M. FORD CREECH ANTIQUES & FINE ARTS
FIRST PERIOD WORCESTER SMALL CIRCULAR
The small circular openwork basket of
overlapping interlaced circles, the intersections on the exterior
strengthened with applied flowerheads, the center printed with the “The Pinecone” pattern, depicting
an open peony between two pinecones and a pomegranate below a blue
painted upper rim, the pattern possibly based on prints or Dutch
tiles; marked verso with an underglaze hatched blue crescent.
The earliest of the
Worcester openwork baskets were of circular form,
Chelsea and Meissen prototypes.
These circular baskets were made at
a time printing was just being perfected.
As Worcester had
difficulty printing to upright and pierced
most borders of this type remain painted, even when the
central decorations were printed.
As well, most circular baskets are
in colored enamels,
with very few
small circular baskets in blue and white.
Condition : Excellent with a few small firing flaws to the applied
