Artifact of the Week. MAPLE pattern gravy boat and tray, ca. 1884.

This MAPLE pattern gravy boat was made by T. Furnival & Sons, Staffordshire, especially for the Canadian market starting in 1884.

Brown transferware depicting a beaver and maple leaves.

It and  numerous other rare pieces belonging to the MAPLE pattern were acquired at a recent auction held by Peter Ross and are now on display at the Cornwall Canadian Museum as another tribute to Canada’s 150th birthday.

The gravy boat tray.

Base size:  9.3 cm x 14.4 cm

Much more to come.
