A pair of English Blue Jasper Dip Bough Pots c.1800-1815. Attributed to Daniel Steel, Burslem. 'D' shaped bough pot of semi-circular form, made with a solid-white jasper body dipped in dark blue and applied in white relief on each side with classical figurative subjects. Both bough pots are unmarked.
Daniel Steel appears to have only made ornamental wares in jasper dry bodies and the jasper is often distinctive in appearance. The jasper's, which are generally dipped, can be characterised as bold in appearance with a a dark jasper body contrasted with prominent white relief.
Condition: The first bough pot has a few chips around the rim and the base. The second bough pot has been broken and glued back together. Both pots are lacking their lids.
