Label:
The shape of this vessel (called fluted ware) conforms to the natural lobes of shells, a motif also seen on the two-tiered pickle stands made by Bonnin and Morris. Like on related English wares from the Liverpool, England, factories of Chaffers and Christian, familiar borders in English and Continental designs frame Chinese-style landscapes.
