Parian Tray with Unusual Shape

This creamy white parian ware tray has an unusual shape. I believe it was intended for use with a water set (a glass pitcher, bowl and two goblets). The molded design along the border consists of fern, vines, blossoms and leaves (appearing to be morning glories).

When resting on a flat surface, the tray arches up somewhat in the center; I attribute this to kiln warping, rather than an intentional design. Unmarked, most likely English, ca. 1860's, and a nice example of Victorian ceramic design.

Size: Approximately 12" x 13".

Condition: Excellent. No chips, cracks or repairs.

Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, I would expect a return if I happen to miss anything.
