Comport c1800 Maker: Turner  Pattern:Unidentified Pattern
Comport c1800
Made by William & John Turner of High Street, Lane End, Longton, who also traded as Turner & Co. They succeeded their father John on his death in 1786 and their works closed in 1805/6 after the firm was declared bankrupt. The Turner brothers were granted a patent for an ironstone type earthenware body in 1800, which included Tabberners Mine Rock. This is a rare example of the Turner's Stone China, an attractive footed comport with Imari inspired border pattern, which has been clobbered in bold reds and blues in keeping with the Georgian love of bright colours. The body has the slightly grey appearance of stone china. Backstamp: Turner's Patent apparently printed or stamped in orange under the glaze and an open blue printed crescent. In manufacture the dark blue has been applied with enthusiasm and has run slightly down the ends and there is a large spot of blue on the flat foot at one end and a few minor spots elsewhere. There are minor stress cracks, where the two halves of the body join, which also occurred during manufacture. A little minor wear to the enamel on the rim, but no actual damage. It rings beautifully and is in superb condition for its age. An extremely rare survivor, complete with its rare and historic backstamp.
