Ex coll. Mrs. E. Tatnall (Mary Corbit) Warner.  A note in her handwriting on a paper label applied to the underside of a saucer (acc. no. 1971.757.16) states that the tea and coffee service to which the slop bowl belongs was acquired by Capt. James Jefferis for his daughter Ann, who married David Wilson Jr.


This bowl is part of a partial service of one slop bowl (1971.757.1), three coffee cups (1971.757.2-.4), a tea cup (1971.757.5), thirteen deep saucers (1971.757.6-.18), and four small plates (1971.757.19-.22).  The slop bowl was intended for tea and coffee dregs.  The service is decorated with black transfer-printed designs of "Stately Homes," being images of English country houses and ruins.  The bowl shows an image of part of a house, a stone bridge over water, a man fishing, and a gentleman and lady in the right front foreground.  The same image is printed on two sides of the bowl.  The rim has a thick and a thin gold band around the outside, and the bowl stands on a thick foot ring.
