The stand of hexagonal form, with scalloped mid-sections, and everted walls. 

Transfer-printed in black enamel with Robert Hancock's Ruins print under slender black band at rim. Two figures in long robes in the lower right foreground, standing before a large urn on stepped plinth in the middle of classical columns among grasses, surrounded by towering trees, with a view. 

Unmarked. 

Circa 1770. 

1" H. x 5 1/2" W. x 5 1/2" D.

Note: Possible "invisible" signature for Hancock at 4 o'clock in the print.
