antique 19C Victorian GAME PIE DISH CHICKS & EGGS LID Wedgwood style Caneware
Please scroll down to see all pics. NOTE: Some pics reading too light.
A fantastic antique, 19C Victorian, game pie dish having a delightful figural grouping of chicks hatching out of eggs on the lid. Bunches of wheat at the chicks feet. The ornate lid sits upon a basket weave dish having a 2 part bottom tray, the outside ring of which repeats the wheat motif. These hatching chicks are alarmingly sweet & very detailed. I believe the eggs &chicks on the may have been originally painted in some manner, of course that was over 100 years ago and only the black eyes retain some paint and traces of toning on the lid. Dish looks and displays beautifully just the way it is.
Unglazed bas relief finish on game pie dishes was pioneered by Wedgwood and is referred to as caneware. Coloring of clay on this piece is lighter and a more creamy clay color than a Wedgwood pie dish I recently had.
Impressed maker's mark "W W&S , 182 "on bottom.
Dish has a few discreet old chips which I will describe. The dish displays beautifully and these minor chips are not distracting visually.
There are a few very minor shallow nicks or chips on the inside edge of basket edge. Likewise along the inner edge of the wheat adorned tray ring there are some very minor shallow chips. No repairs.
Measures approx. 8-1/2" w. across basket top edge (9-1/2" across bottom tray ring) x 7-1/2" t. to top of standing chick.
Original liner not present, I would think there was one originally, liners are often not found with the dishes.
Fantastic Victorian game pie delight.
Double boxed for safe travel.

I DO NOT MAKE MONEY ON SHIPPING, like most sellers of vintage & antique goods I generally lose money on shipping ! In fact now takes a percentage of seller shipping costs in addition to the Paypal fees. INSURANCE & DELIVERY CONFIRMATION (or Signature if over $250.00) is INCLUDED in the shipping & handling fee in compliance with 's new insurance policy, see shipping calculator. I charge a small handling fee to cover or help defray the cost of packing supplies so that your item will arrive safely. SHIPPING CHARGES CAN BE FOUND ON THE SHIPPING CALCULATOR, IF THEY ARE MORE THAN YOU WANT TO PAY THEN DO NOT offer ON MY ITEM. I am not a large company that can offer free shipping, I am 1 person selling old things you might have a hard time finding elsewhere. If I have overestimated insurance I will revise that on the invoice I send out to you. I ship First Class mail if under 13 oz., otherwise Priority. Packages larger than 12x12x12 have the option of Parcel USPS shipping to reduce cost. I double box fragile items & often the outer box is larger than 12x12x12. BEAR IN MIND PARCEL IS SLOWER THAN PRIORITY, it can take up to 2 weeks for delivery, but it CAN be substantially lower in price. If there will be a big difference in cost I will click the Parcel & Priority rate in the shipping calculator so you can choose the one you want. Shipping & handling costs is buyers responsibility.

We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.
