Offered for sale is a Mid 19th Century wooden framed Pratt Ware pot lid. It is transfer printed with a painting entitled "Persuasion". It depicts a gentleman trying to use all of his persuasive powers over a young lady. It was Felix Edward Pratt (1813-94) who spotted the commercial possibilities of using new printing technology to decorate the lids of containers for popular products such as bear's grease, gentleman's relish, potted shrimps and cosmetics, with sophisticated designs. After 1840, F. & R. Pratt of Fenton in Staffordshire, became the leading (but not the only) manufacturer of multicoloured transfer printed pot lids and a huge range of related wares. Long admired for their technical excellence, for their sheer variety and as a social and historical record of their era, pot lids have a venerable collecting history and rank among the most desirable everyday items from the Victorian period. The pot lid has been framed in a circular wooden frame. There is a hanging loop in the top rim.
