Object Detail

finger bowl and stand of plain form printed with The Stand or Chinese Family pattern, the brown outline print coloured in with vibrant enamels. This pattern is more usually found on Worcester wares. The tissue taken from the copper print has been cut in half to "spread" the pattern to suit the shape.
Fingerbowls and stands are rarely found in Bow, Adams and Redstone illustrate an example with a fine blue and white floral print but with the addition of Meissen marks. An earlier shape with a scalloped edge and imari decoration is also known.
