Ridgways "Indus" Ceramic Tray Black Transfer 1870s Wading Birds
Ridgways "Indus" pattern tray in black transfer. Mark registered June 15, 1877. Design includes wading birds and tropical plants. Measures 9" x 10.75" with scroll handles at each end; slight well in center. Have seen it described as a cake plate, but more inclined to think it was an undertray for a tureen or comport. Nice condition with only crazing of the glaze; no chips or cracks. Sold as is. Inglenook Antiques...Established 1989.
