RARE 1880 Brown Transferware HUGE Cooler or Punch Bowl Copeland Spode Rural Scenes Sheep Cows
Circa 1880's Antique
Spode Copeland Duncan Rural Scenes / Ashburne
Stoke Upon Trent
BROWN TRANSFERWARE RARE PUNCH BOWL / WASH BASIN
One of my favorites!
In 1849, W T Copeland commissioned artist Edward Duncan to paint a series of sepia water colors to inspire a selection of tableware. In the following year Copeland Spode registered the new Rural Scenes pattern. It was produced subsequently without a border design and was called Duncan Scenes. Around 1878 the production was limited and printed in brown on cream bodied eartherware in Amien embossed shape with Gadroon rims. This piece features an embossed Bamboo relief around the outside. The Copleand family retained a dinner set in this pattern.
This piece is a wonderful example of the series...for collectors or for a lover of rural scenery, and is a rare find. Punch bowls are hard to come by! I have this same piece in my collection and have also used it filled with big pine ones set out in the coffee table. It looks nice with a three wick candle in the center (with a glass casing) and flowers or natural elements like the pine ones places around it. Also works as a coke filled with ice.
Measures: just under 15 1/2" x 5 1/2" tall
Condition: No chips or cracks. There are some marks and mars mostly around the outside of the bowl, as shown, however they do not detract from this gorgeous piece! It would be stunning used as a punch bowl or filled with ice and sodas / bottles of chilled wine / beer or filled with seasonal fruits, pinecones in the fall, or just on display as it is.
