Tureen in 'Arctic Scenery' pattern

A two-handled sauce tureen with a cover and stand in 'Arctic Scenery' pattern. It is made of earthenware, transfer-printed in blue on either side with a scene of a man fishing through the ice and two ships amid ice floes. This is a composite picture based on two engravings in W.E. Parry's 'Journal of a Voyage for the Discovery of a North-West Passage' (London, 1821). 'Situation of H.M. Ships Hecla and Griper from the 17th to the 23rd of Aug. 1820' engraved by W. Westall after H.P. Hoppner. The man fishing is from 'The Crews of H.M.S. Hecla & Griper cutting into Winter Harbour Sept. 26th 1819' engraved by W. Westall after F.W. Beechey. At each end of the tureen is a scene of two men talking; one has a gun on his shoulder. The top rim has a racoon at each end and a frieze of animals on the outside. The lid, which has a hole for the ladle is decorated with rams, cows and flowers. The stand depicts a canoeing scene on a lake from John Franklin's 'Journey to the shores of the Polar Sea in 1819-20-21-22' (London, 1824) engraved by Edward Finden after Robert Hood entitled 'Expedition crossing Lake Prosperous'. Panels around the rim show flowers and a fox, kangaroo, goat and moose. There are four similar tureens in the museum's collections AAA4337-AAA4340.
