AESTHETIC ERA BLACK TRANSFERWARE POT LID
Made in the Staffordshire Region of England c. 1880
This Victorian 3 1/8 " wide x 1 3/4 " tall covered ceramic earthenware container was made during Victorian times and contained one part wax and four parts rose oil. Some creative Chemists would add whale sperm, borax, almond oil or the popular Otto of Roses. A very attractive pot with a melting transfer.
The best dark black transfer we have seen. The piece is in excellent condition. The base has a small chip off the bottom and the front has a natural stilt mark.
