BLACK TRANSFERWARE COVERED TUREEN
Ridgways Potteries Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire England c. 1885
This very desirable and sought after Victorian aesthetic movement 12 " long x 7 " wide x 6 " tall covered serving tureen is transfer printed in black and then hand painted under the final glaze.
The pattern features a cover rim of wildly tropical flowers with Hummingbirds. Hawk and Duck grace the interior along with a plethora of flowers. Two songbirds on each side of the base watch over a nest of eggs. Very ornate bamboo handles. A marvel of the imagination.
Possibly Never Used. Great condition with the lid being a very snug fit.
