Antique 1830's Staffordshire, England brown transferware covered sugar bowl or tureen. Pattern is Gipsy (Gypsy). The manufacturer is unknown. Research indicates it dates to the 1830's and early 1840's. The paneled bowl features a scene of gypsies camping in a field with a fire. It is accented with geometric patterns and a flower bud finial on lid. A rare early piece of brown transferware. Marked "Gipsy" on bottom as shown. The octagonal sugar bowl measures 7-12" tall to the top of the finial and... 6" from handle to handle. Good antique condition, not without age related character. Overall some expect surface wear. Lid may be a marriage. There is a vent hole in the top. It is an estate purchase. I suspect who ever got the teapot also got the sugar bowl lid. Chip on the lid, hard to see when it is in place. Expect stains. There is a hairline on the bottom. Handles are in tact. Look how beautifully it displays as the true antique that it is.
