English creamware circular stand with chestnut basket (2006.33.6.1), which was probably not the original stand with the basket. The stand is decorated around the deep rim with a complex openwork pattern and has a plain, undecorated well. Period images of these baskets have a stand that has a short flaring rim - not a deep bowl shape stand. See Leeds Pottery Pattern Book, 1814, plate 34, no. 137.
