Wow, decorate your table with this beauty! The presence of a game pie at a dinner party was evidence that an aspiring middle-class family had either the wealth or connections to acquire game legally. A finely modeled majolica game pie dish would satisfy the host and hostess that their guests noted its presentation at the dinner table. Wedgwood has created this majolica masterpiece game tureen with raised relief designs. The background color is a light cream which allows the raised colored portion come to live. This piece has been decorated with flowers and the catch of the day on the front and back sides. The ends have a magnificent griffin sitting on a dolphin. The top has two love birds as a finial surrounded by flowers, foliage and game. The piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. There is staining on the inside bottom and at each end of the inside of the lid. Please see pictures. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
