Imperial: Tureen 5 ins diameter 6.25 ins overall height
Metric: Tureen 13 cm diameter 16 cm overall height
It is so difficult to find the complete sauce tureen set. This decorative example was probably assembled at some point in the past, but all fits together beautifully.
The tureen and cover both have moulded loop handles and are in excellent condition. As always there are the occasional glaze blemishes, but the glaze is sound and they could not be brighter and cleaner. No maker's backstamp.
The stand has two side grip handles and the glaze is very finely crazed, with two areas with a hint of staining, but these are hidden when the tureen is in place. Blue printed Asiatic Pheasants cartouche backstamp with B H & Co, which is usually attributed to Beech Hancock of Burslem 1851-55.
The ladle is decorated down the handle, round and in the bowl. The glaze is crazed and stained, but there is no damage. A rare survivor.
