Fishermen with Nets is a pattern most often assciated with Robert Hamilton, however there are also distinctly English and extremely Eastern versions, as well as the version here, which whilst broadly similar to Hamilton has a number of differences. The most striking thing about this comport is that it has been hand-painted over the glaze. At first sight we wondered if it had been done after manufacture, however, further research turned up a complete dessert service decorated in this fashion, so rare, but not unique!
No maker's backstamp and only a blue printed 5 workman's mark.
The glaze is finely crazed and there is a short hairline on one side, that gets lost in the pattern, and a little minor wear to the rim, otherwise in excellent condition. Ideal if you like your blue and white to be colourful.
