"Mr. Punch," states this cream-glazed Wedgwood pottery dish. Heralding from Staffordshire, it's been painted in red overglaze with an image of our Punchinello, as he was when performed by Professor Piccini. He's framed within a handsome scalloped border.
The reverse of the dish is stamped with the mark: "Wedgwood of Etruria & Barlaston" and painted by the artist: "DECORATED BY VIVIAN COOKE."
