This is a lovely, particularly large antique footed tureen / punch or serving bowl and matching under plate in the ‘Khotan’ pattern made in 'semi-porcelain' by the well known Staffordshire potters Wood & Sons in England c 1907.
Known as ‘Semi-Porcelain’, it feels and looks more like china than earthenware and is a most attractive example of the ever popular English blue and white transfer ware 'china' of the turn of the century produced for the ‘larger market’. This pattern is a gloriously deep blue denim background embellished with pretty florals and medallions in a lighter indigo blue. This gives a striking contrast with the glossy pure white ground. The effect presents a slightly Oriental flair and was created by Frederick Rhead in 1907 for the potters. The tureen's base fits well into a raised border on the under plate to keep it from sliding.
Marked with a blue under glaze mark with: Khotan/Semi-Porcelain/Wood & Sons and the Wood & Sons crown over a banner and England. This mark would put this set to between 1907-1910 when the name of the firm and the mark changed to Wood & Sons Ltd.
Tureen: 12" long, 11" wide, 3 3/4" high - bowl 3.5" deep. Under plate: 12.25" long, 11 1/4" wide”. Condition is pristine – no chips, cracks, utensil marks, damage or crazing. Very lightly used - if at all.
