Description

By the 1870s, Muskoka had become the premier “wilderness” vacationland for southern Ontarians. This is reflected in the popularity of Muskoka imagery in various media during the late 19th century. Aynsley made at least three dessert services with Muskoka scenery and they all date to the early 1880s. This comport, which was originally part of a service of at least 16 pieces, was once owned by Canadian pottery historian, Elizabeth Collard.
