porringer

Porringer decorated fairly crudely in reddish brown, blue and green on a cream ground. The central area is bordered with a design of triangles formed of brown parallel lines, betwen the ends of which are alternately green and blue groups of lines. Between this area and the border are four foliate elements defined in brown lines infilled with blue and green, which alternate with blue and green triangles pointing outwards formed of lines parallel with the edge of the dish. The porringer has a border of two concentric brown lines between which are alternating sections of loops and cross-hatching in brown all the way round.
