VICTORIAN BROWN TRANSFERWARE TUREEN
W. H. Grindley and Co. Potteries
Tunstall, Staffordshire England
This delightful Victorian aesthetic 11 " x 7 " x 5 “ tall covered tureen is transfer printed in rich dark Brown with a pearlware glaze. I love this pattern, makes me dream of springtime.
The pattern features oversized Daffodils, wild grasses and flowering phlox gracing the lid with a landscape scene of a young boy watching a sailing vessel rounding a huge castle. Repeating vignettes of luscious Daffodils along the rim. The pattern displays the Victorian eras love of nature.
The piece is marked on the underside with an impressed registration mark, the pattern name and trademark that identifies the maker as Grindley, a pottery maker working in Tunstall in the Staffordshire region of England during the 19th century.
The piece is in great condition. Never Used.
