Pyramid Incense Burner

Pattern Category: Other Floral and Botanical Patterns

Object Type: Useful, Ornamental and Toys


This rare earthenware pyramid shaped incense burner is printed in a variation of Spode's Chinese Flowers pattern in blue underglaze with enameling in cobalt blue.  It rests on a gild decorated footed stand.  While this pattern was designed to have color added, as in this example,  it is one of the few outline prints that were regularly issued in plain blue without enameling or added colors.  The object can be found on page 98 of the 1820 Shape Book.
