c1825 Hand Painted English Ironstone Imari Japan-style Plate in perfect condition

Antique stone china plate with overglaze red, yellow and peach (light orange) enameling and delicate accents from the second quarter of the 19th century. The color palette mimics the Japanese Imari porcelains of the late 1600s and that have remained popular for more than 300 years. Western European potters first copied these red and blue Imari designs on their tin glazed wares in the early 1700s and then on porcelain in the mid 18th century. Imari decoration reemerged once again on ironstone where the red and dark blue palette nicely accented the bluish gray bodied wares.

The decoration on this plate encompasses a central scene of a oriental porcelain vase containing a bouquet of flowers and set outside on a pavilion or deck along a garden fence. Three panels set off by dark blue borders surround the central design and repeat a grouping of oriental foliage and flowers. Several types of brushes were used to add the overglaze enameling and to achieve the intricate designs. Two shades of blue were used to render the outlines that make up the underglaze portion of the decoration after which the plate was glazed and then painted with the red, yellow and orangish-peach enameling. The yellow enameling over top of the dark blue reserves produces the appearance of gold accenting and provides a richness to the details that burnished gold seldom achieves due to its tendency to disappear under reflected light and glare. The end result of the yellow and red is a very attractive plate that deceives the eye and appears to display a perfect mix of yellow gold with red and blue Imari. Meigh, Hicks, Ridgway, Minton, Mason, Spode and other Staffordshire ironstone potters produced Imari-style patterns from about 1805 up to the 1830s. British earthenware potteries adapted their own version of Imari knock-offs with Gaudy Dutch motifs on pearlware and creamware in the early to mid 1800s.

The rim pattern or outer rim shape on this plate also has a history that goes back to the previous century (i.e., the 1700s). There are eight indents or edge notches along the rim that create eight rim segments. Each rim segment is slightly rounded and this gives the plate a rounded octagonal shape. Chinese blue and white export porcelain was produced on rounded octagonal plate blanks as well as plain round plates and more angular octagonal rims in the second half of the 1700s and British potters copied these rim shapes in delftware, creamware and pearlware. Ironstone potters continued the practice and the rounded octagonal plate eventually went out of style in the 1840s. The stone china plate offered here is in excellent condition (see full Condition notes below) and has an underglaze blue printed mark on its backside that was used by just one recognized pottery before 1830: Hicks, Meigh and Johnston of High Street, Shelton, Staffordshire. The quality of this plate, both is superior glaze, underglaze printed blue and overglaze hand painted details are consistent with the ironstone produced by Hicks, Meigh and Johnston in the 1822 to 1830 period. The three sprays on the backside of the plate complete the pattern as it would have been rendered some 100 years earlier. Hicks & Meigh had been partners from 1806 and had been producing high grade stone china in Imari patterns and in the style of Mason's ironstone for about 15 years before Johnston joined the firm. The plate listed for sale here is a wonderful example for the ironstone collector, interior decorator or antique enthusiast that is guaranteed to capture attention in most any setting. And as always, this plate also comes with my full satisfaction guarantee or return it for a refund (see return policy full details explained farther below).

SIZE: This plate has a maximum diameter of about 9 inches and it stands about 1 1/8 inches tall along its outer rim. It has a well formed and rounded footring that has a diameter of 5 1/2 inches. It weighs 1 1/4 lbs which is much heavier than the average pearlware plate of the same age.. The overall pattern is perfectly center and together with its well executed enameling, this plate is guaranteed to delight its next owner no matter where it is displayed.

CONDITION: This plate has no chips, cracks, hairlines, star cracks, stains, deep scratches, repairs or restorations. Even the typical minor production flaws caused by kiln furniture used to hold the plate during firing are restricted to three tiny contact scars on the outer marly that are hard to find without examining every square inch in close detail. The plate has a few minor scratches and some glaze wear from being stacked for many years, however these are no easily seen without again studying the plate up-close under very strong light. And so a better example would be hard to find today without paying another $50 to $90 over the price offered here. Finally, this plate also comes with a full satisfaction guarantee or you may return it post marked by 10 days for a refund (see my full return policy details given below).

SHIPPING: All US mainland buyers pay $12.70 for well packed and insured USPS Priority Mail (this is an estimated savings of about $1 to $4 since insurance is also INCLUDED in the above quoted amount for all mainland US addresses). If you live in Texas or in an adjacent state, simply email me for a revised quote. A slower shipping option is also available, too (see shipping section below for Parcel Post option). No handling or packing fees are ever charged and fragile items will be double boxed for maximum protection. All international buyers will pay only the exact shipping costs for all verifiable locations outside the continental US mainland. We have shipped fragile items to 23 countries around the globe to date and have not had any items lost or broken, however this fact does not guarantee that no postal mishandling will ever occur in the future. Also, please note that International import duties, taxes and other charges are not included in the item price or shipping costs and these additional charges are the Buyer's responsibility. We do offer a petition for VAT relief on the behalf of the buyer which may help reduce certain import taxes should your country allow such petitions for items over 100 years old. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to purchasing this item -- thanks.
