Ridgway hand coloured porcelain lidded sugar bowl. Item 4065.
This finely moulded Ridgway porcelain lidded sugar bowl is decorated with the hand coloured printed pattern 2/845, which features a large urn and scholars rocks amid floral Chinoiserie and is further enhanced with gilding. It is unmarked, but corresponds to Plates 99 and 100 in Godden’s “Ridgway Porcelains”. It stands 140mm to the top of the gilded butterfly knop. The colours are still vibrant and it displays well, however there has been a repair to the very edge of the lid leaving a noticeable colour change to the gilding for a length of about 40mm. C1820-5.
