Staffordshire Transferware Colored Ironstone Basket

This large reticulated Staffordshire Transferware Basket and tray c.1830 was probably produced at the Carey's factory. It's as if the colors were picked to blend beautifully with today's interior color schemes. I can just see it on top of a fireplace! The pattern is a wonderful combination of baskets and flowers. The brown transfer was applied to the the pieces first and the colors were hand painted afterward.

The baskets were used for chestnuts and are commonly referred to as 'chestnut baskets'. The reticulations served to cool the chestnuts after they came from the fire.

Very slight staining on the bottom of the base, very very minor loss of color to the painted enamels. No chips, cracks, restorations etc. Basket: 10 inches x 7 inches. Tray: 81/2 inches x 10 1/2inches
