Not your average dog bowl!

This kidney shaped dish features a dog (possibly a Newfoundland) and was one of the first items we have purchased for the Enlightenment! project. It was produced by the Royal Crown Derby factory and was painted by John Brewer. It reflects the great interest in exploration and the attempts to find the Northwest passage that were made in the eighteenth and early nineteenth century. Kidney shaped dish
