And early English blue transferware Asparagus Server with the popular Chinoiserie Transfer titled “Boy on a Buffalo,” dating c. 1810-1820. Asparagus servers were used in groups to decoratively arrange cooked asparagus on the serving table, and to permit easy serving. This fan-shaped piece is 3” long and 3” wide at the top, 1 ¾” across at the narrow end. The sides are 1 ¼” high. It has a chinoiserie butterfly border, as described in the Transferware Collectors Club Pattern and Source Print Database. The image was taken from a popular Chinese Export pattern of the period.
