Patterson Bacchanalian Cherubs Sugar Bowl c1840

Imperial: 3.75 ins diameter 3.5 ins high
Metric: 9.5 cm diameter 8.5 cm high

This fabulous urn shaped sugar bowl, with two lion mask side handles, sadly lacks its cover. It is attributed to Patterson & Co of Gateshead, Tyneside. The design has been noted on tea wares and marked examples are recorded with a blue printed oval cartouche, including the maker's name. This bowl is unmarked. An aptly named design as it depicts inebriated cherubs picking and eating grapes. No backstamp. Overall in good condition, the glaze is crazed and has taken up some light staining, mainly inside and to the foot. There is a small area of amateur restoration on the rim above one of the side handles. See True Blue Case 6/2 for a similar bowl exhibited at the Friends of Blue Exhibition at the Wedgwood Museum in 1998. This is a rare survivor from one of the lesser known potteries in the North-East. Provenance: Edna Bizon Collection, previously the Patricia Davies Collection
