This is a lovely, wonderfully decorative and useful 12" rectangular/oval antique platter in the ‘Khotan’ pattern made by Wood & Son in England c 1907.
12" in length x 8.5"" wide. There are two very small firing flaws (1-2mm) on the top and bottom edges of the long sides, which are difficult to see. Otherwise the condition is pristine – no chips, cracks, utensil marks, damage or crazing. Very lightly used - if at all.
Known as ‘Semi-China’, it is a great example of the ever popular English blue and white transfer ware pottery of the turn of the century produced for the ‘larger market’. This pattern is a gloriously deep blue denim background embellished with pretty florals and medallions in a lighter indigo blue. This gives a striking contrast with the glossy pure white ground. The effect presents a slightly Oriental flair and was created by Frederick Rhead in 1907 for the potters. Marked with a blue under glaze mark with: Khotan/Semi-Porcelain/Wood & Sons and the Wood & Sons crown over a banner and England. This mark would put this set to between 1907-1910 when the name and mark changed to Wood & Sons Ltd.
This piece is one of many in this wonderful pattern, including two covered vegetable bowls, a large tureen with underplate additional platters and a full 48 piece dining service setting for twelve, all of which are listed in the shop, so please do view the other listings.
