A lovely black transfer-decorated, pierced platter drainer, or mezzanine, manufactured by Wedgwood in their 'Bouquet' pattern. The British Registry Mark on the back dates this piece to 1846. This drainer would sit inside a matching platter, the meat would rest on top, the juices draining through to the platter below.

This drainer measures 11 1/2" by 8" and is in very good undamaged condition. There are no chips, cracks or restorations. The piece has some all over fine crazing, as is typical, but no staining. It is difficult to find these drainers in such good order...they were the 'working' part of the platter where the roast was carved and usually they are sporting a great deal of surface wear and deep knife marks. This drainer has none of those issues...really quite a nice piece. It is marked with an impressed 'Wedgwood' mark.
