This attractive Stone China Sauce Tureen Stand, is decorated with a floral Imari design in blue and iron- red, with lots of gilding.
The octagonal stand is about 7"in diameter and 1-1/8" high. The number 80 pattern is quite rare...I couldn't find another piece currently for sale.
The piece is in pristine condition. There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing, and no repairs. It rings when tapped.
The stand was made by Hicks, Meigh & Johnson of Shelton, Staffordshire between 1822-1835. (But likely on the early end of that range because of the low pattern number.)
The stand is marked on the base with the Royal Arms mark printed in blue, "Stone China" in blue, and the hand painted pattern number 80 painted in red.
There is also a workman's mark, a red painted squiggle.
