19th c. American Belleek Willets Woodland Pattern Aesthetic Movement Bowl Rare:
$420.00

a rare and unique American Belleek porcelain bowl by Willets Porcelain of New Jersey.
This bowl has a beautifully applied gilt foliate decoration in the Japanese manner.The edges are a rolled scallop design that fade from blush pink to eggshell white towards the bottom.The handle of this bowl, perhaps it's most unique feature, is comprised of three teal and giltbranches arranged in a tripod, just like what was used to hoist a kettle or pot over an open fire.The colors and shape of this precious piece make this a very desirable addition to any American Belleek collection.Willets Manufacturing Company of Trenton, New Jersey, began work in 1879.The company made belleek in the late 1880s and 1890s in shapes similar to those used by the Irish Belleek factory.They stopped working about 1912.
Their short run makes this piece especially rare.American art ceramics made in the late 1800s to early 1900s represent a very important part of our nation's art history.There is a misconception that art ceramics made by Americans in the 19th century and early 20th century are inferior tothose made overseas. If you take a Ceramic Art Company (formerly the Lenox Company) porcelain vase, hand paintedwith roses by William Morley, and compare it with any porcelain vase made in Europe, it is just as good, if not better.We have no intention of discouraging collecting foreign porcelain since everyone has his or her own interests.We only want to bring to the attention of collectors that there is something really good at home waiting for themto discover and collect as well. We consider these fine porcelains made here as national treasures worth collecting and displaying.American Belleek porcelain, as it is called, is generally referred to as fine porcelains made from the 1880s to the early1930s in Trenton, New Jersey, although its history goes back to as early as 1852 when the McCully Family operatedin that area with one kiln. During those 50 years, the area around Trenton was the only major porcelain industry in America,although it also produced pottery.Approx. Dimensions:
