Staffordshire Fruit Basket circa 1825

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.
