DESCRIPTION: Our opening bid is our reserve. Staffordshire Transferware. Wonderful and quite scarce early dark blue transferware pierced basket or fruit bowl. The pattern is from the highly collectible series "Quadruped" by John Hall (1802-1832). This piece dates to the 1820s to circa 1825. Marked with a printed "I. Hall" and printed pattern. The different shaped pieces in this series have a different central view of a quadruped animal. This is the "Fox" . The central view is of a fox with a rooster in the background. You will find many plates and some platters in the "Quadruped" pattern, but holloware pieces, such as this basket, are quite rare. Condition is excellent. No chips, or cracks. Little if any wear. T is some sand grit and t, in-the-making. On one handle, the glaze is dull on the top only. I thought this might be a repair, but it didn't show as repaired when I looked at it under a black light. On the underside of the handle the glaze is shiny. The handle has never been off. Maybe glaze rubbing, factory flaw, or small chip repair. Mentioned for accuracy. The basket displays wonderfully. You would have to look long and hard to find another. Measures about 12" long (handle to handle), 8 1/4" wide and 3 3/4" tall.
