VICTORIAN AESTHETIC ERA
BLACK TRANSFERWARE POT LID
HAM & CHICKEN PASTE
Made in the Staffordshire Region of England c. 1885
This Victorian 4 1/4 " wide x 2 " tall covered ceramic earthenware container was made during Victorian times and contained a finely blended Ham and Chicken paste. During Victorian and Edwardian times, these pots allowed people to keep these staple food pastes without spoiling.
The pot lid has Queen Victoria's Thistle branch coat of arms and was prepared by Fortnum & Mason in London. Mmmm, potted ham and chicken pate' on toast !
The pieces are in good condition and display nicely. There are some chips to the top of the base.
