Made in England from 1828-1843 by Wood & Challinor, is this lovely bowl in the "Mesina" pattern. The rim of this dish is covered with feathery springs and trios of tiny flowers. The center medallion features a man and woman in court costume on a grassy bank. Two tall trees rise at left. A river divides the scene, and there are three Gothic buildings standing in the background.
This shallow bowl is lovely in an entryway to hold keys or loose change, or just standing by itself or as part of a vignette. I serve nuts and crackers in bowls this size, but my favorite use is for ice cream. The bowl is 6 inches in diameter and stands 1 1/4 inches tall. It is in pristine condition with a clear, crisp, light blue transfer.
