This wonderful brown transferware comport or cake stand was manufactured by George Jones of Staffordshire, England, circa 1861-1873.

What I love about it the most is that there are brown transfer designs on a creamy background on both the top and the underside of the bowl!

Measuring 8.75" diameter and standing 5.25" tall, the gently scalloped rim surrounds three brown transfer views: Two young birds on either side of a stream playing tug-of-war with a worm, a patterned bird in flight, and a butterfly in flight. On the underside, the two young birds are amongst the wildflowers with one of them looking at a bee and the other about to peck at food, the bird in flight is carrying a small blossom sprig, and the butterfly remains in flight.

The impressed mark of George Jones appears on the bottom of the pedestal along with an impressed cross shape.

This piece is in wonderful condition considering its age. The glaze is shiny and bright overall and the only issues I find are minor marks around the rim where the comport has probably bumped against other items.

This would be a superb addition to your brown transferware collection for display or use.

As always, please contact me with any queries!
