Victorian Ironstone Tureen
Ironstone ware, or most commonly called just ironstone, is a type of vitreous pottery first made in the United Kingdom in the early 19th century. It was developed by potters in Staffordshire, England as a cheaper, hard-wearing alternative to porcelain.
This is a lovely ironstone tureen, decorated with the popular cobalt blue and burnt sienna colours of the second half of the Victorion period. It has a large ornate finial to the lid, and bears the impressed marks "B and B and New stone" to the base.
Condition is very good with no cracks or chips.
Dimensions: 30cm x 27cm x 13cm high
