Large & Very Nice Quality 19th Century Derbyshire Bluejohn Blue John Bowl:
LARGE & VERY NICE QUALITY 19th CENTURY DERBYSHIRE BLUEJOHN Blue John BOWL
Up for sale is a really nice and very attractive large Derbyshire Blue John bowl. It is an extremely good strong blue colour with the characteristic clear / white crystals. This bowl is a very large (see photos of it in my hand) and very high-quality specimen and is nicely turned with a concaved foot. The blue john stone is lovely quality and the crystals are very clear and bright. You can see my hand through it in the photo and it looks like it could be made of ice. I would think that it dates from the late 19th century - around 1890/1900. It is in extremely good condition with NO chips, cracks or restoration – all the lines and tiny crevasses in the stone are totally natural. It measures 10.6 cm (4 3/16 inches) in diameter and 3.8 cm (1 ½ inches) in height and weighs 205 grams.
I have listed two pieces of blue john and an Ashford marble candlestick (all from Derbyshire) this week. See the last photo of them together as you may be interested in them. The photo gives a sense of scale. Please remember that they are all being sold in separate sales but I am happy to combine postage to save you money where possible.
