19th C. Staffordshire Transferware Sugar Bowl – “Tibetian Musk Deer” Pattern
Staffordshire transferware covered sugar bowl, circa 1820.
Dimensions: Approximately 7” x 5” x 6¼” tall (including handles and lid).
The body has an overall floral design.
The sides have a panel illustrating a deer.
The panel is surrounded by diaper panels. The design of these panels has also led to this being sometimes referred to as the “Peanut Border” pattern.
The top has a slightly different pattern than the body and is a replacement, although it fits perfectly.
The source print “Tibetian Musk” is from the book "A Cabinet of Quadrupeds" by John Church published in 1805.
This print was also used by Hall in the Quadrupeds series and by Enoch Woods in the Sporting series.
Condition: One handle has an old repair, otherwise in excellent condition consistent with age and usage.
