Saucer with a molded rim, decorated in underglaze blue, polychrome enamels, and gold, with cell-diaper border framed by wavy bands on the lobed rim, border of diapers, frets, scales, butterflies, and sprays in the well above a husk chain, central design of a peacock crest above a garlanded shield bearing the initials PTC.
Although the crest is borne by at least a dozen families, the initials suggest that the service was made for a member of the Charnell family, possibly a relative of Thomas Charnell of Snareston in Leicestershire.
