            EARLY NEW HALL BAT-PRINTED BOWL WITH “GREEN BANK” SCENE

A MONOCHROME BAT-PRINTED HARD-PASTE PORCELAIN BOWL ATTRIBUTED TO THE NEW HALL FACTORY AT NEWHALL, SHELTON, STAFFORDSHIRE. THERE ARE 3 SCENES PRINTED ON THE OUTER PERIMETER; ONE OF WHICH IS TITLED “GREEN BANK”. THE BOWL MEASURES 6 INCHES IN DIAMETER AND IS 3 ¼ INCHES HIGH. 

THE UNDERSIDE BEARS A PATTERN NUMBER OF “769”.  THERE IS ONE SMALL CHIP ON THE RIM AND THE BLACK RIM LINE IS WORN IN PART. OTHERWISE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION FOR A BOWL OF THIS AGE. CIRCA 1783-1809.

I BELIEVE THE “GREEN BANK” SCENE REFLECTS THE FORMER HOME OF THE RATHBONE FAMILY IN NEARBY LIVERPOOL WHICH WAS BUILT IN THE EARLY 1700’S, LEASED BY THEM IN 1788 AS A HOLIDAY HOUSE FROM THE EARL OF SEFTON THEN PURCHASED OUTRIGHT ALONG WITH THE LAND IN 1809. THIS APPEARS TO BE AN EARLY VIEW OF THE HOUSE BEFORE THE 1809 REBUILDING WHICH CREATED A GOTHIC FAÇADE AND A CAST IRON SCREENING & BALCONY. THE ARTIST JOHN JAMES AUDUBON OF “BIRDS OF AMERICA” FAME DINED THERE IN THE 1820’S. THE RATHBONES WERE VERY WEALTHY QUAKERS OR UNITARIANS, ABOLITIONISTS, POLITICIANS & SOCIAL REFORMERS. THE HOUSE IS NOW PART OF THE UNIVERSITY OF LIVERPOOL AND IS A GRADE II HERITAGE PROPERTY.
