John Pearson Galleon Bowl
Copper bowl or small charger hand made by John Pearson and showing the year 1898.
Circular, with a raised edge and depicting a splendidly stylised galleon complete with a winged serpent on the mainsail. Five shields adorn the side of the ship and the crew can be seen on the upper deck.
Sailing on an undulating sea with a school of ten fish all swimming in the same direction just below the hull.
Strong repoussé work that is typically Pearson, all set against a hammered background.
Signed and dated verso and also showing the circled pattern number 2391.
The diameter is approximately 32 cm and the height 4.5 cm.
A small area of discolouration is showing at the top of the mast which is probably the result of the hanger being attached to the back at some stage.
