Footbath c1850
Grand footbath made by John Meir & Son of Greengates Pottery, Tunstall, Staffordshire, active 1837 to 1897. Printed in a pale blue the interior has two American eagles perched on a tree branch set within a rocky, mountainous landscape with lake. The outside has four identical vignettes with an American eagle perched on a crag in a similar setting, with large waterfalls in the background, which have been suggested as the Niagara Falls. Backstamp: blue printed ribbon around eagle, with Ornithology and J Meir & Son. There is some wear and crazing to the glaze, with minor marking or staining here and there. Inside is a star hairline, which does not go through. Overall, this footbath is in excellent condition and survived remarkably well.
