18th Century Bowl depicting Cancer


Code: J22138

A fine quality, 18th century, Wedgwood jasper dip bowl. This is marked “WEDGWOOD”, beneath which is a large letter “A”, and it dates from c.1790. The letter A is a workman’s mark. It was part of a large tea and coffee service, most of which is decorated with the signs of the Zodiac. We have split the service and are selling all items individually. Many other items can be seen on our website. 

The bowl is decorated with a wide band of scrolls and flowers and there is a central cartouche depicting Cancer, the crab. This is bordered by two different foliate borders. Both the white jasperware and the relief decoration are of the finest quality, typical of the eighteenth century. There is a very fine hairline across the base, which can be seen in the images. This is the only fault.

Dimensions: Diameter 16.6cm. Depth 7.5cm.
