Of all the dinnerware patterns Wedgewood produced around the turn of the 20th century, Ivanhoe is probably our favorite. Based on Sir Walter Scott's 1820 novel, each piece features a different scene from the book, and as with all quality dinnerware patterns, the dinner plates and other pieces come with twelve different designed! The borders feature portraits of the various characters from the novel in roundels, surrounded by landscape scenes, each featuring male and female animals, keeping with the Romantic theme of the novel.
On a fairly white version of their Queensware body, the Wedgwood transfer printed the designs in two colors: cobalt blue, and a much subtler color referred to as blue-gray.
This is an oval platter in this pattern. The image in the center is "Prince John bandying words with Locksley."
Size: 14.675" wide by 11.5" deep by 1.5" tall from the table at the rim.
Condition: crazing, wear to the edge of the back. Very slight wear from use to the front, which can only be seen under close examination. Otherwise fine.
Mark: impressed Wedgwood marks. Date code looks to be UVK, which would mean a date of 1882, but the letters are filled with glaze and hard to read.
