Late 1800s vintage English transferware china tureen or covered vegetable bowl, about 12" across the handles.
This is Ridgways 'Indus' pattern, with birds, grasses and flowers, bamboo styled handles - one of my favorite china patterns of all time! Classic antique chinoiserie design.
This piece is in terrible condition - I'd never have listed it, but everyone who sees it loves it. Those birds!
It's crazed and spotted, with hairlines to the bowl, and a few small chips to bowl and lid. The foot is badly broken and badly repaired. One handle is broken, also repaired.
