Early 19th Cent Blue Decorated Pineapple Bowl Basin Talavera Spain
Calling all antique bowl lovers this is a spectacular cobalt blue decorated large bowl or basin c1800-1820 from Talavera Spain. At the center is a great stylized Pineapple surrounded by a wreath of ferns. This piece is considered Faience the white creamy glaze on the earthenware on this particular piece looks greige in color more so on the front. This is because the earthenware color is a dark red.
You can see the chip at the center it does not go all the way through. There are also a few rim chips. The bowl still displays beautifully and the bowl collector will display this one proudly even with the defects. The design and glaze are incredible!
