Large Antique Wedgwood Basin

Classically elegant is this very large (approximately 19-1/2 inches by 15 inches by nine inches high)Wedgwood foot bath in finely molded creamware. With a large impressed WEDGWOOD mark and the impressed mark CBD, which I interpret to indicate an 1875 manufacture, it is decorated with a border of laurel leaves enameled in turquoise, the same shade used to highlight the scallop-shell handles and encircling borders. A simple dotted border is enameled in pale olive. It is excellent condition, with only minor chips on the underside of one handle and on the outside turquoise border; there is also an age crack at the bottom. So that the basin may be easily used as a jardiniere, an enameled liner has been made with lifting handles.
