Davenport will always be a name high on the roll of honor in English ceramics and this piece truly display that. This beautiful open serving bowl or tureen has an ivory background and sits on a footed base. It has a wonderful deep brown transfer of Oriental styled birds flying through wispy cloud puffs. Geometric designs are around the base and make up a band around the center of this piece. The handles are bamboo or cane shaped with brown accents. There are no chips or cracks and only minor discoloration on this wonderful dish. IT IS RARE TO FIND OLDER EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
Measures: 13 1/2" L handle to handle 11" L just bowl x 7 1/4" W
