Discovery: A Documented Bow Bowl Made for Halifax-Lodge / North-Carolina


Abstract:
This article presents information on a Masonic punch bowl made by the Bow factory in London for 'Halifax-Lodge/North-Carolina' that was part of a 1767 order for four Bow China bowls. This example is the first time a documented reference has been found specifying an order of Bow porcelain decorated especially for the American market. Archival and archaeological information on the bowl and its owners along with a diagnostic analysis of the bowl as an example of Bow porcelain are included.
