A Wedgwood Creamware Tureen, Cover And Stand. Printed in Liverpool by Guy Green.
The Queen's Ware creamware tureen is of unusually large size. Circular in form with large loop handles to each side, the tureen is decorated in a black transfer, with an oval panel with a view of a small hamlet with building and figures, one fishing by the side of a bridge. Around the rim of the cover, tureen and underdish is a printed floral swag. The cover is of an unusual design with a wide flat rim and the center raised to a fluted section narrowing to the flower bud finial.
Underdish: 14 inches.
Tureen width: 15 inches x height: 12 inches.
Reference: The platter is illustrated in color in The Dwight and Lucille Beeson Wedgwood Collection at the Birmingham Museum of Art, page 40, Color plate 21.
