Flow Blue is a type of antique china called transferware. The production of this attractive dishware originated in the Regency era, sometime in the 1820's, among the Staffordshire potters of England. The name is derived from the blue glaze that blurred or "flowed" during the firing process. From the Nora Davenport collection, in excellent condition, this rare and magnificent antique Johnson Bros. English Flow Blue Soup Tureen and Platter/Underplate is a stunning must have piece to add to your collection.
The lovely floral Claremont pattern, c. Early 1900's, is deep blue which contrasts. All pieces have an elegant raised white embossed accent.
The tureen measures approximately 6" tall x 10.5"(w/handle) x 9" wide; the platter/underplate is approximately 12 3/4" x 9. The glaze is bright & glossy, with no chips, cracks, or repairs.
There are a few small glaze skips on the bottom side of the platter/underplate which is normal from the drying process during manufacturing.
