Shown here is the stand with handles printed in a different pattern from the Sydenham Series.


This ironstone sauce tureen without handles printed in blue with a Sydenham Series pattern was found among some 800 sherds from a variety of vessels in the Sydenham Series pattern in both blue and brown that have been recovered at the historic Warner archaeological site in Livingston County, Michigan.  It had been curated by six generations of the Warner family for over 150 years.
