The majolica game pie dish was a profoundly Victorian object. Depictions of deathly imagery on a household product can today seem strange and even distasteful, however these majolica game pie dishes draw upon Victorians’ complicated understanding of man’s place in nature, entangled with issues of science, morality, and mortality. This George Jones game pie dish, made circa 1867-69, furthers Victorian notions of nature while illustrating a transition away from the Naturalism style to Revivalist and Aesthetic movements.
