This gorgeous Sauce Tureen sports entwined Dolphins on the lid and both handles. It stands about 6" high and is about 7-1/4" wide.
It is in excellent, pristine condition. There are no cracks, no chips, no crazing, and no repairs. The enamel colors and the lavish gilding are bright and unworn. Both cover and body ring when tapped.
This Tureen is marked with the painted pattern number 859. It dates c 1815-20.
The base is marked "STONE CHINA" within a scrolled cartouche, with a crown above. This mark is mentioned in "Godden's Guide to Ironstone Stone and Granite Wares" on page 311. Mr. Godden writes, " It is not clear why such marks do not bear the usual Ridgway brothers' initials "J & WR". If a painted pattern number appears with these marks it should be in the approximate range 750 to 1000, fitting with the Ridgway dessert and dinner service series."
