This interesting piece illustrates the complexity of identifying early 19th century Staffordshire porcelains. They were all close to each other, and employed the same work force, made items from the same clay, used the same pigments – and copied each other’s designs! Without a pattern number, it is almost impossible to define a maker for some particular patterns, including the ‘Kiwi’ pattern.
Keeling has one detail evident on this bowl which isn’t always apparent on Newhall- the black line – Newhall generally uses red at the rim.
