This small dish is sturdy English ironstone pottery, flow blue, with a transfer underglaze. It is shaped something like a kidney bean; its unusual shape allowed it to fit on the table at the top edge of the dinner plate to receive discarded chicken or fish bones. This dish could easily be used as a soap dish or trinket dish today. The maker is not discernible, but the country of origin is England, the design is "Martha," and the date of origin is around 1900. This little dish has a deep blue floral and swag design with moderate flowing; there is a floral bouquet that drapes down toward the center of the dish. The dish is in excellent original condition. It is 6 1/2" X 3 1/4" X 7/8" deep.
