    I was going to say "transfer ware" and am glad to see it's already out there.

    The seller calling one of those "flow blue" has made a mistake. ;)

    Flow blue, schmo blue. It isn't. It is early nineteenth I'd say and I love it. The design may be the same, but I think the transfer itself is different from the Clews one. Yours is a bit less crisp and almost primitive, hence probably earlier.

    Transfer ware tea bowl absolutely.

    I know what you mean. I have some damaged late 18th C pickle dishes which I am very fond of indeed.

    Lovely cup, nice old age, and I love the Neptune figure. He seems very surprised to have found himself on a cup after emerging from the sea foam.
    Of course you are!
    My grandmother was 39 for at least ten years. Time passed more slowly in those days.:playful:
