Description

Characterized by delicate scroll-like embossing below the top rim, this shape is found with a variety of treatments.  Tea service items are found in both round and oval shapes.  Many pieces are found with an impressed "No. 2."

NOTE:  The impressed name does not include the word "shape."  However, the mark clearly shows this as a potter-named body style.  Registered in 1862.
