SALE PRICE SLASHED EXQUISITE 1800'S WHITE IRONSTONE LEAF & BERRY W.E. CORN PLATTER GREAT FOR THANKSGIVING/CHRISTMAS TURKEY!!! This is a large 16 1/4" x 11 3/4" white ironstone platter with a leaf and berry design. I am not sure of the pattern name. Also to add interest, there is a larger than thumb "thumbprint" impressions all the way around as you can see in the picture.
This wonderful platter is most likely from the late 1800's but perhaps early 1900's. There are two markings on the back. One is incised in the pottery, and the other is the marking you most often see in black. This is made by W. E. Corn: Burslem. There are no chips, cracks or breaks. There are a few pops in the glaze in places, and it has a little bit of shelf wear just from being stored in someone's attic for years and years, but no damage. I have not ever soaked this, so you may also see a couple of spots that would easily come out if you want to soak it in creamy peroxide for awhile, and there's one spot on the back that just rubs off, so it's just some kind of greasy spot that will go away when I rub it, but it is in one picture you see.
There are lots of the very plain white ironstone platters available which I also love, but this pattern would not come by so often as those, so you're really getting a deal compared to what you might have to pay in some antique shops. I just have a weakness for white ironstone, as evidenced by all that is in my house, so I often buy to keep, and just have no room. Such is the case for this beauty!
This is a heavy piece, and I will wrap with the utmost care so that it arrives safely. It will have to go in a different size/shape box, so that often makes the shipping a bit more too. If you'd like for me to try FEDEX to see if it is less for shipping, feel free to ask and I will do so. Prices quoted for shipping are strictly USPS quotes.
Thanks so much for shopping with me, and God Bless You! May we honor Him in all we say and do!
