VICTORIAN AESTHETIC ERA
BLACK TRANSFERWARE POT LID
Made in the Staffordshire Region of England
This Victorian 4 " wide x 2 " tall covered ceramic earthenware container was made during Victorian times and contained a finely blended Anchovy fish paste. During Victorian and Edwardian times, these pots allowed people to keep these staple food pastes without spoiling.
The pot lid has the royal coat of arms and was prepared by Fortnum & Mason in London. Mmmm, Anchovy paste on toast !
The piece is in very good condition.
