Antique English blue & white gilt tureen or covered dish. The piece is large measuring 13 1/2" long by 10 1/2" wide and 7 1/2" tall. The piece is in excellent condition with no repair, loss, wear, or damage or discoloration to note. The tureen is well marked although we cannot peg the manufacturer, we can however date the tureen to 1840-60. Both the underside of the lid and the base bear the lion and unicorn mark under glaze with the incision of #91 stone china. While many manufacturers used a similar mark I have yet to find the particular mark.
