This is a good Ironstone Sauce Tureen, complete with lid, made by Mason's of Lane Delph, Staffordshire, England, during the early part of the 19th century, circa 1815.

This tureen is well potted with a rectangular curved shape on a low foot. There are two moulded animal head handles to the base and a shaped knob to the top of the lid. The lid has an end cutaway for the insertion of a serving spoon.

The pattern is called " India Pheasant" which is a blue and white chinoiserie Mason's pattern, as illustrated on page 119 in The Mason's collectors Club book " A Guide to Mason's patent Ironstone patterns, circa 1813-circa 1848" . Tureens of the same shape and period are illustrated on Pages 140 and 141 of Godden's Guide to Mason's China and the Ironstone Wares published by the Antique Collectors' Club.

Both the base and the lid are marked with probably the earliest impressed Mason's mark; the circular "Patent Ironstone China", dating the piece to circa 1815-1820 (probably closer to 1815) the English, Late Georgian period.

This is a very good piece of early Mason's in lovely condition, for display or use.
