English Armorial Porcelain Tea Bowl GARLAND Family Crest Coat Arms

WEIGHT: 8.04 troy ounces (8.82 ounces or 250.00 grams)
Here is a superb and rare Barr Worcester bowl , made as a supplement to a Chinese Qianlong period armorial porcelain service. Probably made for the GARLAND family of POOLE Dorset. George Garland was Mayor and M.P for the coastal town of Poole in Dorset.The East Indiamen "Halsewell" was wrecked off the coat at Worth Matravers in 1786, and the Garlands of Eastington Farm aided, fed and sheltered the survivors. The East India Company in London presented the family with a Wedgwood teaset painted with their arms, I believe this was made for the same family or close relatives.
