This unusual piece is from Spode Copeland and dates to the late Victorian period. It is transfer printed in blue and white in the Willow pattern with the Fitzhugh border. The detail suggests it is the Mandarin II variant and it is in a bright royal blue. The set comprises bowl with lid and base with integral small pot and inset along with a scrolled over handle and shell finish end. It clearly has a specific purpose, but I can't reference the body despite having a number of reference works inlcuding the specific Spode Willow book. The bowl has been split in two and it was cherished enough to have repaired, and it has a staple repair typical of travelling tinkers during the late 19th century. The mark is the green Spode Copland rectangle seen quite frequently during the later 19th century. There is also a clay mark which appears to be the date code for April 1885. All in all it is a very interesting piece, and if you can shed light on the specific use that would be great.
