VICTORIAN AESTHETIC ERA

BLACK TRANSFERWARE POT LID

POTTED TONGUE

Made in the Staffordshire Region of England
c. 1885

This Victorian 4 " wide x 2 " tall covered ceramic earthenware container was made during Victorian times and contained a delicious Potted Tongue paste. During Victorian and Edwardian times, these pots allowed people to keep these staple food pastes without spoiling.

The pot lid has Queen Victoria's coat of arms and was prepared by Fortnum & Mason in London. Mmmm, potted tongue meat on toast !

The English Coat of Arms, including the crowned English Lion and the sinister Scottish unicorn, chained because he was considered a dangerous beast. It also includes the motto of the English monarchs, Dieu et Mon droit (God and my right) and the motto of the Order of the Garter, Honi soit qui mal y pense (shamed be he who thinks ill of it).

The pieces are in great condition. The lid is great and the base has a small area of discoloration and a chip under the base. Best one we have seen in a long time.
