Antique James Beech "Pekin" Staffordshire Sauce Tureen and Tray
Images of a regal mail figure and his attendants in a garden scene adorn this antique English transferware sauce tureen and stand from James Beech, Staffordshire. These late 19th Century earthenware pieces are in the pattern Pekin or Peking. The geometric border and an iridescent lustre detail throughout adds to the splendidness of the tureen and tray. Included are a lidded tureen and stand. The stand bears a backstamp with a swan and the text, “Trademark Pekin J.B.” and both items have a hand painted pattern number, “728”.
Wear consistent with age and use. Surface marks from prior use; some discoloration and crazing.
