Information
A rare tart dish printed in medium blue and showing the scene of a wolf trap with a lamb suspended over it in a basket. A pot of water drips on to the lamb causing it to bleat and attract wolves. Four wolves have gathered and one is shown falling into the pit below which is disguised with branches and leaves. Exotic border of tigers, bears, boar and cormorants. There is some damage, more noticeable on the reverse. A chip with a crack extending across the rim to the well, another hairline in a similar position and a rim chip (see images 4 and 5). Old damage which appears stable and doesn't detract from the display value of this rare item. Finely potted indented shape with a lovely pale blue rippled glaze and no foot rim. Impressed SPODE 5 and printed SPODE with the title COMMON WOLF TRAP in underglaze blue. Diameter 20.5cm (8.15in)
