Offering a 4 piece Brown Aesthetic Transfer Pattern ~ Staffordshire ~ Soap Dish ~ A. & F. CO., Foley Pattern ~ 1880.
Beautiful example of Aesthetic Brown Transferware. C. 1880s. The set contains 4 pieces, 1 - footed bowl, 2 - inserts/drainers and 1 - lid. The transfer on the lid, bowl and one of the pierced inserts are in a brown floral and geometric design. The other insert is a plain white. I acquired all 4 pieces at an auction, not sure it the plain white one is actually part of this set, but it fits nicely in the bowl and if your using it, works great for the purpose intended, to hold soaps or sponges.
MEASURES: It is most unusual to find one of these dishes with its original, undamaged drainer. This has 2. The bowl measures: 2 1/4 tall x 6 3/8" wide(without lid) (with lid it is 5 1/2" tall. Original lid with geometric design is 5" wide, the plain white one is 5 5/8" wide.

BOWL: NO CHIPS OR CRAZING, has minor wear on the bottom from sitting, has a stain line on the inside bottom, and outside, I don't think it is crack, cant feel it , might just be a craze stain line LID: PERFECT!
