BROWN TRANSFERWARE SAUCE OR VEGETABLE TUREEN WITH MATCHING UNDERPLATTER
Josiah Wedgwood and Sons
Staffordshire England 1883
This rare Victorian serving piece is transfer printed in dark brown. Under platter measures 8" long x 6 " wide. Tureen is 7 3/4 " long x 5 1/2 " wide x 5 " tall.
The clear and crisp SEAWEED pattern features a variety of ocean seaweed drifting around the lid, base and incredible handles. Rarely do we see this pattern especially in this size and great condition. The pattern displays the victorian eras love of nature. Many consider this the very best in Victorian transferware.
Never Used. Clean shiny and bright. No damage other than a small chip on the underside of the lid. A remarkable piece in a great pattern and rare form.
