A superb transfer printed blue and white Staffordshire soup dish in the "Birds and Fruit" pattern. Unmarked but attributed to John Hall & Sons, Burslem, England. The central scene features two birds amidst a panoply of fruit, including pears, strawberries, blackberries, grapes, etc. The cavetto and wide rim has a border of flowers and foliage.

The color of this dish is a deep, clear blue, with no blurriness, and with the desired ripple glaze. Condition is excellent, with no cracks, restoration, or staining. Scratching, if any, is minimal and not really visible. At one place at the side of the rim, there is a tiny flake of glaze loss. The back has typical glaze crackling. The diameter 9 3/4".

A fine example of this highly desirable pattern.
