This cobalt blue Newhall porcelain bowl was made by Adam Buck. It is decorated with charming scenes of children at play. The artist Adam Buck (1759–1833) was a neoclassical portraitist and painter. The vibrant colors of the painted scenes are outstanding. The color of the cobalt blue ground surrounding the scenes is heightened by rich gilding. I believe the most beautiful of the scenes is in the inside of the well. It shows four children at play with dolls, a cat, and a dog.
Because it is painted so well on both the inside and outside this bowl would be beautiful placed on a low table as well as on a shelf or mantle .

Background of Adam Buck:
Adam Buck (1759–1833) was an Irish neo-classical portraitist and miniature painter and engraver principally active in London. He became an accomplished miniaturist in the 1780s. His patrons included Angelica Catalani (an opera singer), JP Kemble, Sir Francis Burdett, Thomas Hope, George IV, the Duke of York and his mistress Mary Anne Clarke. A major influence on Regency culture he produced plates of contemporary costume as well as genre pictures of family and classical scenes and illustrations for Laurence Sterne's Sentimental Journey. Buck was much influenced by the Greek Revival (the furniture, costumes and even hairstyles in his works are all ancient Greek). He also acted as a painting teacher, as well as exhibiting more than 170 miniatures and small full-length portraits at the Royal Academy between 1795 and 1833.
