Printed Chinoiserie Pearlware Bowl

(1816 - 1836)

Nine mended rim and body sherds from a pearlware bowl.  The exterior and interior surfaces are decorated with a medium blue underglaze transfer printed decoration. The exterior design consists of a chinoiserie style house, tree, and rocks, and is reminiscent of the willow pattern. The interior surface features a 1 inch wide European-style geometric border below the rim. There is some discoloration on the glaze and paste, which may be from burning or a privy.
