This is spectacular black Staffordshire transferware serving tureen, c. 1820. It measures 13 “ long and 9 ” across x 6 1/2 “ tall. It was impeccably potted and finely transfer printed in a rich and intense bittersweet black, with a pearlware glaze, gadrooned edge and scalloped rim.
The base and cover each have bold borders with 5 birds along with lavish flowers and a butterfly. The cover has Foxes in the hen house and the base has a family of long haired Goats.
It was was made by Job Meigh and Sons, c. 1820, and is part of the elusive the Zoological Sketches series. The series features different wild animals and other exotic creatures on each form.
Great condition with a slight amount of rubbing to the edges.
