A very handsome rectangular pedestalled Staffordshire Victorian transferware tureen (with lid) planted with N. tête-à-tête. In excellent condition apart from a tiny hairline crack to one side.


Very traditional Victorian pattern in dark navy/black on cream - we are currently researching this as the British Registry mark is fairly indistinguishable. We believe it to be made by Pratt & Simpson which then became Wallis Gimson & Co. judging by the very similar tureens made by them - both in detail, shape and pattern at the time. Clearly influenced by the Aesthetic Movement, the pattern - which looks like peonies - reflects the period's keen interest in the botanical world. We think c1885.


We include the provenance along with detailed growing instructions. The bulbs can be re-planted out in the garden to flower again next season, and this lovely vintage piece still has fiunctional value if not used as a bulb planter again.


Our potted plants makes the perfect gift and come with a personalised gift card carefully packed in our compostable recycled straw boxes and shipped overnight throughout the UK with the option of our very pretty handblocked tissue paper and vintage velvet ribbon gift wrapping. The perfect sustainable way to to have scented flowers in your home over winter and nothing single-use about any element!


Kindly note our plants are seasonal so wont always look exactly the same as the picture, likewise for our containers which are all one-offs. We always let you know if we need to substitute a plant or pot for any reason.
