Very early small Antique Blue and White Transferware Bowl, with the most enchanting design of a boy with his best friend, his dog. Decorative and charming, this transfer printed design is amongst the most collectable, pieces with children and their dogs are rare to find.
The bowl is from the earlier period of the 19th century, and most likely made in Staffordshire, England. Beautiful design of flowers, branches and scrolls form the border around the central scene. Not perfect, there is a tight hairline on the outside of the rim, which I forgave it due to how rare and old this piece is. A wonderful addition to your collection of antique English, French and American blue and white.
