World's Fair: 1893 Columbian Exhibition Jasperware Canister by W. T. Copeland & Sons. The blue canister pictures Columbus laying claim to the New World and measures 5.25" high by 5.25" in diameter. The raised image is in a cream colored glaze. The bottom is marked, "1893 / 'Columbus' / Made in England / by / W. T. Copeland & Sons / Stoke upon Trent / for / Burley & Co. / Chicago". The canister was designed by Frank E. Burley whose business, Burley & Co., was located on State Street in Chicago. In the 1892 edition of the Chicago Blue Book of Selected Names, Burley's firm ran an advertisement that proclaimed, "We bring to this city and offer for sale at reasonable prices, the choicest Table Wares, the richest Ornamental Pieces and the latest novelties in Ceramics secured by personal visit to the Art Centres of the Old World." Trivial cracks in the appliqu├ęs and very minor finish loss on one side below the image, else very fine.
