Here is a wonderful English Prattware mid 1800's framed Pot Lid titled " The Rivals" . The lid is in its original circular 5 3/4" brown turn wood frame with a circular hanger attached on the back. The Pot Lid is 4" in diameter. The scene titled "The Rivals" depicts two gentlemen calling on a maiden in a cottage setting. One of the men is in a military uniform. The standing man has a surprised look on his face. There is a cat behind one of his legs. The rim of the jar lid is under the surface of the frame, but you can still see the printed title at the bottom. The lid is in really good condition for its age. There are light surface scratches. No chips or cracks.

Colored pictorial English Pot Lids are charming collectibles. Between 1850 to early 1900's a variety of products were sold in ceramic pots or jars including bear grease, cosmetics, toothpaste, hair creams, etc. These multicolored Pot Lids were created by Felix Pratt ( 1813-1894) of the F. & R. Pratt Co. The Pot Lids are transferware printed painted in vivid colors and finish in high gloss glaze. They are a form of art by talented engravers of the late 1800's. The scenes capture wonderful moments of Victoriana enjoyed for their detailed beauty and history. It became popular to mount them in circular frames for protection and use as decorative items.
