: Tin-glazed earthenware dish. The dish is Britton shape J and the sides lightly fluted. It is painted in blue, red and green on a white glaze, with a pinkish tinge on the back. On the left there is a bird perched on a branch of a flowering tree, there is another similar tree on the right with blue-edged red flowers, green rhomboidal leaves and blue scrolls. It is growing from the ground. There is an inner border of a 'three brick' pattern and a rim border of blue ground divided into six sections each with a round-ended reserve containing an embellished triple bud and rhomboidal leaves. Between the sections there is a narrow vertical reserve with three vertical red dashes separated by double blue lines. It has a blue rim. The footrim is pierced with two holes for hanging [not quite aligned with the design]. There are three stilt marks on the rim.
