1860-70 bulls eye Flow Blue cut spongeware or stick spatter plate with multi colors, showing a stamped red floral border.
Spongeware, as it is known in England, began as cheaper utilitarian tableware made for the common man in the early 19th century. Most of the pieces now collected came from Staffordshire, England and are rarely marked. Many of these goods were also produced for export especially to the American market where they were used to decorate summer cottages and second homes along the eastern Atlantic seaboard. Now considered folk art, these primitive pieces have become desirable as charming collectibles.
The plate is in excellent condition with a small firing smudge to the glaze on the rim.
Size: 9 3/8” Diameter.
