The scene of a mosque and minaret on this dish brings to mind Turkey or another nearby country that in Britain was considered exotic in the early 19th century, perhaps even Greece, which was part of the Ottoman Empire at the time. (Remember Coleridge and his passion for the liberation of Greece?) Whatever the scene, this was sure to please. Sets of little dishes like this would have been used at the dinner table for tiny candies or pieces of pickled fruit. This is in good condition, with only a couple of minor ships. The decoration is bright and clear and shows no loss. Nearly five inches across.
