Lovely Antique Amherst, Japan Ironstone bowl with a scalloped edge in a floral Chinoiserie design.  It's decorated in an Imari-inspired pattern called "Amherst Japan", comprising flowers, leaves and inside, a pagoda and gravel path. "Amherst Japan" is named after Lord Amherst (1773-1857), the successful British diplomat who was envoy to Beijing and later, the Governor General of India. The "Amherst Japan" Imari-inspired pattern was very popular in  the mid- Victorian period. 


In excellent condition but does have a crack (shown) but bowl still has a good ring. Reflected in price. Planted with white hyacitnsh which will flower for Christmas. Would make a lovely gift for someone special and will be couriered overnight, carefully packed and with a personalised card.
