AESTHETIC MOVEMENT TRANSFERWARE TUREEN OR COVERED SERVER
Gildea and Walker Potteries Tunstall, Staffordshire England c. 1883
This Victorian aesthetic 7 1/2 inches long x 4 1/2 inches wide x 5 1/2 inches tall tureen is transfer printed in brown.
The MELBOURNE pattern features delightful Japanesque geometric designs mixed with exotic palm trees and other tropicals. A shoreline with sailing vessels set to the horizon while a large flock of birds fly by. An inset cartouche of a Bird in flight as the Sun rises. Another inset of a spectacular Trillium flower in bloom. This pattern has everything going for it. The pattern displays the Victorian eras love of nature and the exotic.
Never Used. Condition is very good with a tiny chip off the base.
