Flow blue (occasionally 'flown blue') is a style of white earthenware, sometimes porcelain, that originated in the Regency era, sometime in the 1820s, among the Staffordshire potters of England. The name is derived from the blue glaze that blurred or "flowed" during the firing process. Small chip at corner of underliner plate. Measures H 5.25 in. x W 11 in. x D 8.25 in.
