Bow Porcelain Seashell Form Sweetmeats or Salts,
Circa 1750-52.
(NY9044)

The pair of Bow porcelain sweetmeats are painted in underglaze blue and white and are in the form of a scallop shell raised on a white porcelain base of shell and corals.

Dimensions: Height 3 1/2 inches.

Reference:
A fragment of the base of a similar salt was excavated on the factory site in 1867.

The Bow invoice of 1749 in the Bute archives mentions “3 pair shell salts …£1 1s 0d”. The bills refer to items of Bow bought by Lord Dumfries for Dumfries House where the porcelain still remains and provides a valuable aid to dating.

one with a chip at front rim; the second with a hairline on rim and a star-crack to the base of the interior (see photos)
Ref: P. Begg & B. Taylor, op. cit., no 174 for a slightly smaller example;
