Georgian Tea Bowl

Georgian Tea Bowl

SKU: RJ00583
£20.00Price

Early European tea drinking gained popularity in the 1700s.  At first England imported its teaware from China because it was difficult to locally replicate the fine porcelain used in Chinese teaware.  The invention of the handle on a tea bowl was utilitarian and allowed the British to comfortably hold a cup of hot black tea in fine china. However, the manufacture and import of tea bowls in England continued into the 1920's  for aesthetic reasons, as they were seen as more authentically oriental than their handled cousins. 

 

This is a fine china tea bowl, made around 1800, though designs such as this would continued to have been used by the fasionable until the 1830s.  This tea bowl was made in England with a hand-painted oriental design.  

 

This tea bowl has two very fine hair line cracks to the sides.

 

Dimensions: 8cm x 5cm
