For sale we have a rare huge 8 Antique T &R Boote English White Ironstone Pedestal Footed open fruit bowl or compote. This huge beauty is in the early Sydenham design and form. This bowl has a opulent busy design and pattern with flutes and with a beautiful wavy scalloped opening. This bowl has the impressed Register mark that dates the piece to 1853. The pattern and overall form is intriguing and beautiful. The color is rich and glossy throughout the entire piece with the blue glaze pooling present. The inside of the bowl is excellent with no scratching of scuffing. We have not seen another bowl in this pattern and large size. We have seen more cake stands then this form and pattern. This is a fresh to the market example in excellent original untouched condition. This open footed pedestal bowl is very large and impressive at 8″ in height with the opening being 10 1/2″ across the top and the depth of the bowl at 3 3/4 all approx. The condition is fabulous with no chips, cracks, deep scratches or scuffs and no repairs. We only see a discolored glob of ironstone on the one scallop on the outer edge of the bowl and some spotty overall crazing. There is also some usage discoloration on the bottom foot of the bowl. We pictured these areas and mention them for accuracy. This is a excellent rare example and would look great displayed with a early ironstone Cake Stand.
