Extremely rare Bow Quince Box and Cover

An extremely rare Bow Quince Box and Cover, the mottled green, yellow and puce fruit standing upright, the top of the fruit forming the cover, applied with three leaves and a flower issuing from a twig.

Surviving Bow examples of fruit and flower boxes are far rarer than their Chelsea counterparts. They derive from Meissen porcelain and faience counterparts. Bow Quinces are otherwise unrecorded.

Item No. 1100
