Antique 1800's Yellowware Mochaware Blue Seaweed Mixing Bowl
A beautiful antique 1800’s yellow mochaware mixing bowl with rare blue ethereal seaweed mocha design highlighted within a broad band of white slip. Lovely pronounced bullnose lip & base. The seaweed pattern is absolutely exquisite & gorgeous age toned patina is sublime.
Circa 1800’s, use related wear & toning. One chip to the base & a pair of hairline cracks that extend 2 ¼ “ from the upper rim down, on opposite sides. These pieces began life as utilitarian ware so most have not survived and are found more as shards than in intact form. This is likely a North American piece vs British owing to its yellow ware body. Measures 9.5” w x 4 1/4 “ h.
