This is an early English porcelain Sauce Tureen or Sucrier, made by C. J. Mason (The same factory who produced Mason's Ironstone) during the period of William IVth, circa 1830-1835. This is a very decoratively potted piece with a slightly vertically fluted body and wavy rim supported on a low pedestal foot.


The main body has two moulded curled side handles. It comes complete with its original lid which has a hexagonal knob handle. The piece is hand painted in various coloured enamels over a lightly printed outline. The pattern is a listed Mason's pattern called Vase and Box pattern, having a central octagonal panel surrounded by a floral vine with additional floral sprigs and scrolls in typical bright enamels. Gilded highlights are on the side handles and the knob of the lid. This pattern is illustrated on page 114 of a guide to Mason's patent ironstone patterns, published by The Mason's collectors club. This pattern was also used on ironstone and earthenware wares. The Sauce Tureen / Sucrier (sugar bowl) is marked to the underside with number 223 in iron red. The lid is also marked with N 223 , the pattern number.
