A beautiful creamware tureen and lid, probably Leeds, but possibly a Staffordshire factory. Of oval, quatrefoil shape with molded shell borders, scrolled handles, and a pomegranate finial, painted with turquoise and black enamel trim. An identical, undecorated example is shown in "Creamware and Other English Pottery at Temple Newsam House Leeds", item 331.

The overall condition of this wonderful example is excellent, with no cracks or chips. There was a highly professional and invisible restoration done to only the stem portion of the finial, and some very small toned circles around some included frits on the interior. Neither of these truly minor issues have any impact on the appearance, and negligible, if any, effect to the value.

The length is 13 3/4", the width 8", and the height 8 1/4".
