Blue Willow Drain. C.1840-1860
A very nice English 9 inches by 6 3/8 inches wide Blue Willow pattern drainer. This drainer would fit on the center of the matching platter so that the food juices would drain away from the food item. Condition is very good with no chips or cracks.
There is a wire that would have been woven into the holes so that this could be hung on the wall for part of a display. This wire could be removed, I have decided to leave this wire as this may be bought with the intention on displaying the drainer. There is evidence that the final glaze would have been a pearlware glaze that helps this to the 1850’s.
