This earthenware tureen base was manufactured by the English porcelain factory, W. & E. Corn of Longport, Staffordshire, in around 1891. Its transfer-printed design in grey represents sprays of Australian flannel flowers, with small closed buds decorating the back of the base and large open blossom decorating the front. Its heavy and robust form indicates that it was an inexpensive item for everyday use. W. & E. Corn was one of many Staffordshire factories to decorate its wares with Australian motifs.
