Blue and white Staffordshire transferware fruit basket circa 1825. These openwork pieces allowed air to circulate around the grapes or fruit. This one has floral borders, and a center panel with a scene of deer in a landscape with classical ruins (or follies on an estate). Two handles, diamond point piercing. No maker's mark. Blue X mark probably a worker's mark.
Due to their delicate nature, these items do not often survive in such good condition as this one.
Size: Approximately 10" long, 6.5" wide, 3" high.
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.
