Offered is a hard to find green transferprinted vegetable tureen in the Pattern Palestine but not by Adams, but rather by a much lesser known potter, Elijah Jones. Dick Henrywood, a well-known authority, wrote an article for the Transferware Collectors Club describing this potter, the few known marked wares made by him (which at the time only included a few plates), and the fact that Jones apparently decorated in scenes in a couple of series, this being one of them, Sidon. The mark shown is is definitely recognized as his, and it has been determined he potted from 1831 to 1839. This large dish is a great collector's item, especially in this condition.
Dimensions: Height to the top of the handle is about 6 1/2". Length is 12 1/2" and width is about 10".
Condition: Excellent. There are no chips or cracks and there is no discoloration other than a tiny spot at the end of the edge inside of the top as shown. The glaze is smooth and unworn, the color good and the print sharp. It looks like it was never used.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing flaw or repair. While this is normal and to be expected, I note any known issues in the condition description.
