An exceptional example of a Minton trompe l’oeil scalloped dish, almost overflowing with encrusted porcelain flowers and citrus fruits, profusely decorated and further embellished with gilt edged detailing and the underside with a sprig of forget-me-nots, all sitting upon 4 scroll feet.

Trompe l’oeil porcelain tureens and decorative table wares were created in the form of fruits, vegetables and flowers.  They were designed to fool the eye and dress an opulent dining table especially when the fresh produce was seasonally unavailable.  It is suggested that the well of this floral dish may also serve as a potpourri for scented botanical and citrus oils to fill the room with perfume.

Circa 1830.
