Information
A superb 19th century wall pocket by George Grainger of Worcester in the form of a mutton bone being picked clean by three blue tits. The bone is tinted parian and the birds are hand enamelled in naturalistic colours. The side of the bone is incised with 'The Xmas Mutton Bone' (beside the bird's tail in image 4a). In excellent condition; no chips, cracks or restoration. A rare item to find, especially in such remarkable order given the intricate modelling. The reverse incised 'G Grainger, Worcester' with a partial early shield backstamp. Length 23cm (9.1in)
