: Tin-glazed earthenware dish. The dish is Britton shape I. It is painted in blue, red and green on white glaze with pinkish tinge on the back. In the centre at the bottom is a cock between 2 flowering stems; above and to right of him is a tall vase before a flower basket.There is a long flowering branch which extends out from the left of the basket; two half-flowers and three flying insects; all within two blue lines. On the flange are eleven repeats of a flower face between scrolls and round unopened buds. On the back the glaze is very pitted. The footrim is pierced with a single hole for hanging [not aligned with the design]. Under the rim there are three stilt marks.
