Beautiful! A fine Georgian period early 19th century antique English Blue and White transferware / pearlware pottery Large Footed Tureen.
The rare and sought after "Piping Shepherd and Milkmaid" pattern. This piece is unmarked. Of note, a plate decorated in this pattern was sold by Christie's, in 1994, at their South Kensington, London rooms, where it was catalogued as potted by Edward and George Phillips of Longport, Staffordshire ( 1822 - 1848 )..
Decorated in beautiful shades of medium blue with a landscape countryside scene of a shepherd playing his pipe to a young lady, "The milkmaid" seated among sheep and her dog. There is a large house or castle on the hill in the background, the entire whole set within a border of flowers and ivy leaves.
The scene is also present inside the tureen at bottom. And along the lid as well.
Overall beautiful condition, no repairs or cracks. A few minute nics, one under the edge of lid, a couple tiny rough spots along edge. Slight dark spot inside.
This piece measures 14" long, with lid on 8 1/4" tall, 8 1/4" deep.
Truly a special and beautiful piece!
