Offered is this lovely hand-painted porcelain china punch bowl with EIGHT matching cups or mugs. The design features blackberries in dark and light purple, as well as white blossoms and green foliage. The berries, flowers and foliage decorate the outside and inside of the bowl, as well as the front and back of the cups, as you can see in the photos. Gold outlines the rim of the cups and covers the outside of the handles.
Gold trim may have outlined the rim of the bowl. If so, much of it has been lost. This is a family size punch bowl that holds one gallon or four quarts. It stands 6 inches high (15.3 cm) and measures 11 inches in diameter (28 cm).
The cups or mugs stand 4 inches tall (10 cm) and will hold 8 ounces. This punch bowl could be used to serve a chilled punch for any festive event. The size and shape of the cups lead us to believe this punch set may have been designed to serve a warm fruit punch during the winter holidays, in which case this would be called a wassail bowl. In the English tradition, wassailers would stroll from house to house, singing Christmas carols and drinking from wassail cups.
The artists name, Daily, appears on the bottom of each cup. Gold trim in good condition, but does show some wear around the cup rims. If the bowl had a gold rim, most of it has worn off.
