Picture This CXXXVIII

I first mentioned a Bristol blue-dash delft charger that I own in this post and in the comments following this post. As it happens, Woolley and Wallis are conducting The Warner Collection of British Delftware auction at their rooms in Salisbury on Tuesday the 17th September 2019.

Amongst the superlative lots on offer is lot 153 (figure 1), a Bristol blue-dash charger depicting ‘The Temptation’, which bears some similarities to the one in my possession (figure 2).

Fig. 1. Lot 153 (estimate: £800 – £1,200), a Bristol blue-dash charger, circa 1730-40. (Woolley and Wallis)

Fig. 2. A Bristol or Southwark blue-dash charger, circa 1730.

Another similar charger, lot 154, is also up for sale.
