Antique Wash Basin & Pitcher 19C BWM Brown Westhead Moore Aesthetic Movement Blue Transferware Vines & Berries
This pitcher and wash basin would be absolutely stunning filled with fresh flowers in the pitcher . Dating to the latter 19th Century, this
130+ year old set was manufactured by Brown-Westhead, Moore & Co of
Hanley at Cauldon Place, Staffordshire, England. The pattern is entitled Champagne.
B W M were manufacturers of high-grade earthenwares and porcelain Circa 1864-1904.
It is decorated in rich cobalt blue in a vine and berry pattern on the inside and outside of the bowl and pitcher along with a cartouche featuring birds and Asian florals.
Measures: Bowl is appx 15 1/2" x 6" deep Pitcher is appx 11" tall
Condition: Remarkably good condition to pitcher. Unfortunately the bowl had about a 4" x 3" break at the side rim which was glued back in place and I have shown pictures of this. It is still very displayable as the crack can be turned towards the back. I have discounted this set substantially due to the damage to the bowl.
