Beautiful piece, but we are not sure what it is! We couldn't find another mold like this, even in the Pickard book. Possibly a master salt dish, sugar dish or nappy, perhaps? Regardless, it definitely shows Pickard's artists workmanship. This white china blank has been hand painted with red currants or cherries and green and blue leaves around the gold scalloped rim of the of the bowl portion. Beautiful gold has been applied to the awesome twisted, split handle and the scallop rim of the attached saucer. Red designs accent the inner portion of the saucers rim and a gold outline, which is slightly worn gives definition to the base attaching to the bowl portion. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
