Description : This artefact is a pearl wear cup. It is white in colour with black designs on the main body, inner lip, and handle. The designs are placed on the cup by a process known as transfer printing. Transfer printing developed in England in the mid 18th century and involved the application of oil and colouring oxide to a plate containing the design. Tissue paper was then pressed against the plate and the coloring oxide was transferred. The paper was then placed on the cup thus transferring the pattern. Black was one of the most common colours used in this process. The main design, which is repeated on the opposite side of the cup, is an Iberian pastoral scene. It depicts a woman balancing a basket on her head while riding a horse side saddle. The horse is being led by a man holding a stick in his left hand. The inner lip and handle bear a repeating geometric pattern consisting of diamond, hourglass, and circular shapes. The cup has no evidence of a maker's mark.
Commentaires : Transfer printing was developed by John Brooks in 1752 and at a separate location by John Sadler of the Sadler and Green Company 1756-1770. Saddler used engravers from London to create the plates used in his transfer printing. The Saddler Green Company had five main types of images, one of which was landscapes and pastoral scenes. Transfer printing was the dominant ceramic style during the early to mid 19th century. It was marketed for middle class and working class families as a way for them to obtain matched sets at lower costs, as opposed to the expensive hand painted sets.
Fonctions : This cup belong to and was used by Bertha Andersen, 1872 " 1950. Bertha, a resident of Makkovik was a highly respected lady, renowned as midwife, counsellor, matron.
