Creamware Pottery Large Sailor's Farewell Bowl, Circa 1800-20.

The large polychrome creamware bowl has a scene to one side depicting a sailor's farewell. The officer, with a sword in a scabbard to his right hip, stands with arms crossed and his female companion looks away from him as she holds a parasol in her hand. In the background in a Royal Navy frigate at anchor and a sailor in a longboat rowing towards him.

To the reverse side is a charming Chinoiserie scene of two women and a young boy watching a child bring a potted plant towards them. Between the scenes is a pagoda to one side and a plant to the other. Below the Chinoiserie scene on the foot rim, a previous owner has made a small hole in the foot so that it can be hung.
