Spode's Indian Sporting Series - Common Wolf Trap

This fine series was introduced by Spode around 1810 and features seventeen adaptations from Samuel Howitt's engravings from 'Indian Field Sports'. Here is a rare dessert plate or twiffler showing the scene of a wolf trap with a lamb suspended over it in a basket. A pot of water drips on to the lamb causing it to bleat and attract wolves which then fall into a hidden pit below. For more details visit my website Premier Antiques
