  • Description: Small tripod dish. The everted, raised rim scalloped in six lobes and rolled-over in imitation of a European baroque silver shape, raised on three out-turned legs. The well with a European derived landscape with a battlemented tower, buildings and trees, the border with formal flower sprays descending from the rim. The exterior with abbreviated floral patterns. The base unglazed; each foot with a touch of underglaze blue.

    The shape undoubtedly derives from a silver shape, probably Dutch, while the design is surely taken from a European print, as yet unidentified.
