This is an absolutely gorgeous piece, beautifully decorated both inside and out. British Views Series comprises some 14 different scenes, although the location of these two views have not been identified. There is one view inside the bowl and another on the outside, which is repeated on both sides. This view is also found on the soup tureen in this series. British Views has never been found with a maker's backstamp, but has recently been attributed to Hicks and Meigh largely on the strength of commonality of shapes with other patterns known to be by Hicks and Meigh.
Backstamp: Printed ribbon cartouche with British Views.
Light all over crazing to the glaze, plus a small area of restoration underneath near the rim at one end. On one side on the outside the glaze has run done and there are streaks in the print, mainly in the sky. Under the foot a little wear and a small chip. Looks fine on display!
