Product Details

  • Originating from the Chapman Collection at Debden Manor, we offer this superb lidded sardine dish by George Jones, dating from around 1874. Sardines were one of the great delicacies of the Victorian era and wealthy households to draw attention to their presence on the dining table used these types of dishes. The rectangular shaped dish has a skirted scrollwork foot with a yellow rim, with moulded flowers above against a blue enamelled body. This is topped with a yellow rope twist rim, also found on the rim of the lid. The recessed domed lid is mounted with a conch shell finial and sits on a large flat shell and bed of seaweed. The underside of the lid and interior of the dish is a glazed in a vibrant lilac enamel. The base of the dish is painted in the mottled brown and green typical of George Jones, with five small dots painted in the centre. The lid has a painted ‘P’ to the underside, but otherwise the piece is typically unmarked.
