Hi All

I think it is made of porcelain. When digging I thought the was the target but it was just a can.

I am guessing it's off some other porcelain thing but it would be good know what it is off.

Please see pictures

Many thanks Chris.

I agree with the 'foot off a pot'. Possibly from a Victorian Teapot Stand ::g Regards ss47

From the middle of a lid (to hold when lifting off the lid)?
