Delighted to offer this very early antique transfer ware tray or platter in the Blue Willow pattern. The base is incised 'TWIGG' which dates the piece from 1750 to 1797 according to the "Kovels Guide To Pottery & Porcelain Marks, Page 27. The platter measures 19 1/2" by 15 3/4" and stands 1 1/2" tall. There is one minor old rim chip and a 1 inch small tight hairline. (I have taken close up pictures of both issues). The platter certainly displays the age appropriate wear on the base and edges with crazing throughout. The platter was recently purchased from an upstate NY estate sale. This is the largest platter I have ever offered! Just a beautiful antique piece in wonderful condition for it's age!
