Description: Historical Note: The Argyle (1898) by W.H. Grindley was a popular, collectible floral flow blue pattern. Flow blue ceramics, with softly flowing transfer-printed decorations on durable, white, earthenware bodies, were created by English potters in the second quarter of the 19th century. The term itself broadly describes predominantly hard, white-bodied earthenware decorated with underglazed transfer printed designs. Once applied, these designs were caused to bleed or flow into the undecorated portions of the vessel. The addition of lime or chloride of ammonia into the protective shell of the fire-clay sagger surrounding the wares while firing the glaze produced the desired flowing effect. Flow blue ware were particularly popular in the American market by 1840 and continued to be produced in England into the first quarter of the 20th century. By 1850, etiquette required large matching services with a number of functionally specific pieces. These items were donated by the great-grandchildren of Governor and Mrs. Elisha Marshall Pease.
