Royal Doulton Antique Bowl Early MOTORING Series Rare PRICE REDUCED Theme Two Sided Deaf & Room For One English Pottery Pattern D2406



A wonderful and rare find! Royal Doulton Porcelain Pottery China bowl having a double sided image of the famed Motoring Series or sometimes referred to as Automobile Series. One side shows the title image "Room for One" Scene 8 in the series and the other side shows "Deaf"Scene 2. The entire bowl is hand colored with a transer process. Inside rim shows a ring of trees and a cottage with the outside showing an elderly gentleman being hailed by a group of men in a car, he can't hear them and a group of Art Nouveau style dressed young women and men getting into an early Model T car. Bowl has great strong color trimmed in forest green and a creamy ivory background.

The series was introduced and designed by George Holdcroft in 1905 when vehicles began replacing horses and stagecoaches delivering people to traverns.

Circa 1905 ~1928

Measures 9" diam

Royal Doulton backstamp and red hand painted series number on bottom

Crazing to very bottom underside and inside bottom of bowl, typical with this type of pottery in age and maker with very light scattered crazing throughout in small areas. A light surface hairline craze on the side approx 2 1/4" in length, (see fourth picture top left image)~ hard to see unless tilted in light, not through the bowl (see fourth picture top right for comparison in light of same area) and can't be felt by finger. Interior top edge where decoration is shows some light wear and the bottom interior has three circle stains in light yellow, each the size of a nickel.
Please note, I will gladly send anymore images upon request, it is very difficult for the camera to pick up the surface crazing but if you examine the last image bottom of bowl picture this is the type of crazing you can see there an on the bottom interior with only very minimal elsewhere.
