A tremendous rare antique George Jones Majolica sardine dish & plate. Decorated with a detailed underwater scene of fish, water lilies and bamboo framing the scene. The interior of the dish is coloured with a vibrant warm lilac colour. The plate is decorated with bamboo shoots around the rim and under the dish is coloured with an amazing tortoiseshell majolica glaze, typical of George Jones work. This piece is stamped on the bottom with an English diamond registration mark for the date 1875, signed with the number 3441.
This set is truly remarkable however it is, unfortunately, missing the original cover.
