R. Daniel Bowls - 1840Richard Daniel
Set of six Richard Daniel antique bowls in the Sea Weed flow-blue pattern. Very rare to find a Richard Daniel piece. Most pieces available today are from H & R Daniel, and not from the company that Richard created independently. For a time, he was a part of the H & R Daniel company of Staffordshire, England, but had decided to venture on his own for a few years between 1839 and 1841 to produce his own wares. The "H" part of H & R Daniel was Henry Daniel (Richard's father), who worked for Spode for some time. Richard became a partner in a business with his father, Henry, in 1824. They created pieces together that would rival, if not even exceed, the quality of Spode and other prestigious Staffordshire potters at the time. Many of these pieces were highly decorative with bright colors and detailed patterns.
These particular pieces are also a rarity because of their pattern. We could not find this same R. Daniel Sea Weed pattern anywhere. Really fantastic pieces for the collector or even for a museum. They have the lovely blue and white color combination and the detailed Sea Weed pattern that was replicated by other fine potteries in the 1800s.
These bowls have two different marks. Both being Richard Daniel, but one is especially interesting because it has the crest of the Prince of Wales, with the motto "Ich Dien", or "I serve". This mark is especially rare and hard to find. The "RD" mark is clearly shown on the underside of each piece.
- Each bowl measures about 9" in diameter, and about 1.5" tall.
- Part of our Estate Collection and in very good vintage condition. Three of the bowls have some light crazing, but we couldn't find any on the remaining three. There is also some minor finish loss on the rims from age, but nothing significant. We could not find any cracks, chips, or repairs.
