Beautiful 19th Century Staffordshire Ironstone Round Footed Tureen with Lid, made in 1847 between by T J & J Mayer of Burslem, Staffordshire, England. The pottery was in production between 1843-1855. This tureen has such an elegant and classic shape, the footed 8-sided bowl has quite a presence.
The lid has a charming and decorative finial. This has aging, "buttering" mostly on the bottom, and patina as shown, the inside of the bowl has darkening too. Considering it's great age, I consider this in good condition. A rare to find addition to your collection of antique English ironstone.
