This earthenware pierced basket and stand were printed in blue underglaze in the India pattern.  Designed after a Chinese pattern from the K'ang Hsi period, 1700-22, it was introduced by Spode c. 1815.  In the early 1800s the name "India" was often used to describe an oriental style. Shown below is the the stand.  The Workman's Marks are different on each piece:  The basket is marked with WMT 11, and the Stand is marked with WMT 12.  Click on the image to enlarge it.
