Minton First Period Plate, Bamboo & Flowers, c 1820 English Antique

This pretty and crisply printed arcaded plate was part of a larger dessert service that would have been used to serve fruits and desserts after a main meal.

The plate is in excellent condition. It shows no wear. There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing, and no repairs. It has the Semi-China mark surrounded by a "Chinese" seal on the back, along with a workman's tally mark.

According to the Transferware Collectors Club database, "This 7-1/8" arcaded plate shows the popular Bamboo and Flowers pattern introduced c. 1820. The pattern is almost always found with the Semi China printed mark that is probably the earliest printed mark used by Minton. The pattern was found on a wide range of wares including jugs, bowls, dinner, tea and dessert wares."

You can see many examples of this pattern illustrated on pages 153-55 in "An Illustrated Guide to Minton Printed Pottery 1796-1836", by Geoffrey H. Priestman.
