$1,200.00
Quantity available: 1

HERE IS AN A STUNNING 7 PIECE FLOW BLUE STAFFORDSHIRE WASH SET IN FANTASTIC CONDITION. IT FEATURES RAISED GOLD ORIENTAL CHRYSANTHEMUMS ON A DEEP FLOW BLUE COBALT UNDERGLAZE. FLOW BLUE IS A DEEP COBALT BLUE UNDERGLAZE WHICH "FLOWS" INTO THE GLAZE AND IS OBTAINED BY PLACING VOLATILE CHLORIDES IN THE SAGGER CONTAINING THE WARES. CHLORINE IS EMITTED AND COMBINES WITH THE COBALT MAKING IT SLIGHTLY SOLUABLE IN THE GLAZE. THIS PRODUCES THE SLIGHTLY BLURRY OR "FLOW" APPEARANCE. THIS SET IS IN INCREDIBLY GOOD CONDITION FOR ITS AGE AND IS FREE FROM CHIPS AND CRACKS. ANY SPOTS IN THE PAINT IN THE IMAGES ARE FROM FLASH. THE BOWL IS 15" IN DIAM. LARGE SLOP JAR IS 14" HIGH TO TOP OF FINIAL. PITCHER IS 10.5" HIGH. SET ALSO INCLUDES COVERED CHAMBER POT, TOOTHBRUSH HOLDER, SHAVING MUG AND SOAP DISH. DECORATED WITH SPONGE GILDING AROUND EDGES AND PIN STRIPE GILDING BETWEEN BLUE AND WHITE CERAMIC. NO GOLD WEAR. THE MARK SHOWN IN THE IMAGES LOOKS LIKE BLAIR OR BLAKE BUT IS HARD TO MAKE OUT. I HAVE AN ON-LINE APPRAISAL CERTIFICATE FOR THIS SET AND WILL INCLUDE WITH PURCHASE. I HAVE SOLD A NUMBER OF BEAUTIFUL WASH SETS BUT NONE AS BEAUTIFUL AS THIS! FREE SHIPPING; INSURANCE COST ONLY.
