Antique Early Staffordshire Blue and White Transferware Reticulated Fruit Basket Pearlware Circa 1800

This rare pearlware reticulated citrus basket (the shorter examples being specifically fruit or chestnut baskets) is offered in the “Blue Fitzhugh” pattern and was produced in England at the beginning of the 19th century, circa 1800. It features a blue and white transferware border that is traditionally found on Chinoiserie type patterns that were produced by Spode and Minton. We believe that originally this very tall and elegant basket would have had a matching tall pointed lid. This is certainly one of the more unusual examples as the more usual fruit baskets were much shorter and wider and rarely featured a lid. This is the perfect item for anyone who collects the rarer, less commonly founds objects of blue and white transferware.

Measuring: Base 4.75” (12 cm) by 3.5” (9 cm). At widest point 5 1/8” (13 cm) by 6.5” (16.5 cm). Height 4 5/8” (12 cm).

Condition: This item is in very good condition for its vast age and is unmarked as was so common at this period. There is a thin horizontal firing fault to the very top edge of the inner rim approximately 1.5” and a smaller vertical firing fault to the inside of the rim of approximately 2/8” - both tricky to see but mentioned for complete accuracy. There is an area of slight discoloration to the left of this small firing fault that could possibly be some very slight historic 19th century restoration but we are undecided as this basket has a lovely ring to it when gently tapped. There is a minor shallow graze to the glaze on the exterior foot rim of the basket. All points are absolutely non detrimental to the strength or beauty of this rare item.
