Ironstone Find

While on a routine trip to Knitting Mill, I found a lovely little something in a booth I like to frequent:

I'm not sure what it would have been used for- it's too large to be a sugar container, so maybe tea?

The blue cast to the finish makes me think it's an older piece- possibly mid-1800s.

Here it is next to a another ironstone piece, and you can definitely see the difference in the shade.

Another plus to this cutie: just $22. (Sometimes pieces of this size and age can be double or triple that amount!)

Happy Sunday!
