Early John Pearson Jardinière*
Without doubt this is the finest – and earliest – John Pearson jardiniere we’ve ever had the good fortune to come across.
Beautfully repoussé decorated with four galleons following each other around the bulbous body of the bowl, two of them with fearsome stylised bird figureheads.
The four mainsails all show different detail, one with fish breaking the surface of the waves in front of a vivid sunset, another with the fish swimming in a line beneath the waves, a third showing seagulls flying overhead and the last picked out with a repeating foliate design.
Men can be seen working on the ships, which are all slightly different, and flags and long pennants fly from the tops of the masts.
Signed J. Pearson on the underside, numbered 426 and dated 1891, this piece would have been crafted by Pearson around the time he was working with C.R. Ashbee at the Guild of Handicraft.
In excellent conditon, measuring just a fraction below 20 cm in height and approximately 22 cm in diameter.
