Longwy Pottery Plate with Scenes of Bowling and Dancing circa 1885
Additional color has been added over the transfer decoration. Body is a stoneware type, rather than earthenware. Slight "orange peel" effect in glaze (more pronounced on back). Impressed mark used by Longwy in the late nineteenth century.
Size: Approximately 8.625" diameter.
Condition: Light utensil marks, two tiny chips under rim (one glazed over). No other chips, cracks or repairs.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, I would expect a return if I happen to miss anything.
