VICTORIAN AESTHETIC ERA

BLACK TRANSFERWARE POT LID

POTTED TONGUE

Made in the Staffordshire Region of England

c. 1885

This Victorian 4 1/4” wide x 2 " tall covered ceramic earthenware container was made during Victorian times and contained a delicious Potted Tongue paste. During Victorian and Edwardian times, these pots allowed people to keep these staple food pastes without spoiling. Mmmm, potted tongue meat on toast !

The pieces are in good condition. A chip to the inside of the base and one along the outer flange. A married base and lid.  Rare to find piece.
