Amazing English Earthenware Berry Strainer / Drainer or Chestnut Basket with Underplate ~ Butterfly Transfer ~ Daisy & Grass Pattern ~ WT Copeland & Son Staffordshire England 1879-1883
In the winter season when strawberries aren't abundant in some places this would be perfect for those dinner rolls!! This very rare Victorian strawberry dish features images in dark sepia brown transfers of a butterfly amongst wild grasses in interior of the bowl. The exterior is embellished with a ring of daisies which have been tinted in a rich palette of green, turquoise, ochre glazes and luster glazes. With its open lattice work sides, reminiscent of earlier creamware pieces, and the drainage holes in the base, this piece is remarkable. Reticulated handles and four feet have accented gold flora and scrolls adding a special touch. The underplate also has the butterfly grasses and daisy motifs. The set appears to have had very little use through the years. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
Backstamp: impressed COPELAND-Red 1387
Measures: Bowl: 9-1/2" from handle to handle by 4" H Plate: 10"
