Wedgwood 19th Century Aesthetic Period Month Plate September (with cat or dog) Florentine Border
This series of month plates is simply superb! Great designs.
This one has a great subject especially as it includes an animal. Hard to tell but I am favoring it being a dog today although it has some feline qualities to it too. Perfect subject for the month (apple picking).
This one is bordered with a bright reddish orange florentine border. It measures 10 3/8" in diameter. Excellent overall condition with no chips, cracks or repairs, but there are a couple of issues worth mentioning.
On her dress and a little to the right are two white spots that are transfer "misses". Fortunately for the design of this plate, the image is busy and the eye does not land and focus on those areas. They are factory defects and do affect the value as you will see in the pricing.
Also, there is small patterned crazing on both the front and back. Detailed views of the front upper portion shows the crazing very clearly and in the light greenish yellow areas there is oxidation. Again, fortunately, this is evenly dispersed and blends in beautifully with the image so does not detract. Furthermore, when viewed from more than 12 inches away, you do not see the crazing at all!
Also, please note that a matching bordered plate for June is available and listed separately as is a multi-color florentine bordered July plate.
