Presented is a leaf form porcelain dessert dish with bat printed decoration of cows and horses in a rural setting. I am not sure whether this is English or continental European in origin. I am also not sure if this is made of bone china or of a hybrid hard paste; the appearance is such that it is more likely the latter, especially if it is English. Dates from 1810-1825.
Size: Overall diameter is 8 1/4", it is 9 7/8" in length from handle to opposite tip and 1 1/2" in height.
Condition: Very good. There are no chips, cracks, or repairs anywhere including handle and protruding corners. Gilding is good and unworn, glaze is shiny and unworn. The Bat printed decoration is light but not worn or scratched.
Early period antiques are quite old and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing defect or repair. While this is normal and to be expected I note any known issues in the condition descriptions.
