C 1765 Worcester - Willow Bridge Fisherman - Wash Basin and Water Bottle / Guglet
An outstanding Worcester Wash Basin and Guglet set meticulously hand painted with The Willow Bridge Fisherman pattern with border number 90 (reference: Brandon, French and Sandon. Worcester Blue & white Porcelain 1751 -90)
These sets rarely come on the market, the basins have usually been damaged and had some restoration. This set is in wonderful condition with no restoration to either piece. The bowl has a very small fine glaze star crack to the underside of the base just inside the footrim, under strong light this does not show as damage to the porcelain so no evidence inside the bowl. As with most very large Worcester pieces of this early period there are some firing faults, these are very minor and consist of slight deformation of the footrim and bowl. The bowl sits perfectly flat. The Guglet is in perfect condition. The Worcester hand painted open crescent to the base. Basin measures 27.5cms diameter x 11.5cms high. The Guglet measures 25.5cms high.
