: Tin-glazed earthenware dish. The dish is Britton shape I. It is painted in blue, red and green on an off-white glaze with a pinkish tinge on the back and green staining on the flange. In centre there is a bird on a rock under a flowering tree with two main groups of flowers: blue-edged petals with red and green centres; a flowering branch to right of a rock; two insects; all within two blue lines. On the flange there are stylised red flower buds with alternating blue and green leaves, blue scrolling tendrils and a blue line inside the rim. The footrim is pierced with two holes for hanging [not aligned with design]. There are underrim markings: ' // o // o // ' and on the under rim there are four stilt marks.
