9821 A large pair of Minton stoneware jardinières, the bodies cast with a lotus lily pattern, the everted rim with carved leaf detail, standing on four leaf feet. Relief banner mark for Minton, No 140 18 (Pattern No 140, size 18″)
The pattern no 140 is untraced though it seems to be identical to pattern no 198 in the “Ornament and Shape book, 1-255” dated after 1827 (by paper watermark) and probably before 1836, the date of the subsequent ornament book.
