Georgian B. & W. Canton River Scene Tureen Cover Robert Hamilton

A lovely Early 19th Century Antique English Georgian Blue and White Transfer Pottery Tureen Cover in the “Canton River Scene” pattern by Robert Hamilton of Stoke, { 1811 – 1826 }. Based on two prints from Thomas and William Daniell’s “Picturesque Voyage to India by the Way of China”, published in 1810, and introduced in around 1812, the pattern remained in production until 1820. The right hand side of the scene is taken from Plate 23, which is entitled “Hotun on the Canton River”, and the river craft from Plate 32, “South West View of Canton”. The source of the remainder of the design and of the vignettes is unknown. Canton was the first and, except for Macau, the only Chinese port open for foreign trade before 1842. This example with good clear transfer in a medium blue palette is unmarked, but of very fine quality, with a beautifully modelled finial in the form of a figure of a recumbent lion.
