Clearly marked "Devon Ware. Fieldings" and below the Crown "Stoke on Trent. England." this interesting jardinier has almost a matt black glaze with two bands of black and white check and flower decoration in yellow and lilac. It is quite a catching and unusual design. As you would expect there is slight rub to the gold rim but the piece is sound with no chips or cracks. Dating from around 1900 it is a perfect pot to house your aspridestra.
