Was hoping someone could clue me in as to the purpose or correct title

for this very unusual English Porcelain Vessel backstamped Empire Works England with scenes of sailboats and windmills.   Also any idea of approx. value for this antique piece.

Thanks so much for your help.

This is called a tyg. The purpose was a drinking vessel to be handed person to person. The design was used at an ornamental one long after it ceased to be used practically.

Cheers!

You're the best, thank you so much.   I just found the backstamp to put it at 1891.

Thanks so much.   Appreciate your help. 

Best,

Michelle
