An exceptionally rare tureen and cover, its cover taking the form of a rhinoceros. This is one of what is believed to be a very small number of surviving tureens with wild animal covers made by the Staffordshire potters c1860-80. The very few other tureen covers known to have survived the years carry a leopard, crocodile, horse and an elephant. We also hold the rare horse tureen as part of our current stock.
