This is a lovely, wonderfully decorative and useful 16" rectangular/oval antique platter in the ‘Khotan’ pattern made by Wood & Sons in England c. 1907.
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 generous border 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.
16" in length x 11" wide. Condition is pristine – no chips, cracks, utensil marks, damage or crazing. Very lightly used - if at all. There is a tiny (1 x 2 mm) firing flaw on the under rim where the glaze did not quite take.
***** There are numerous other serving pieces also in perfect condition in this wonderful pattern which will be listed separately in the shop to include, gravy boat with under plate, covered vegetable dishes, a large soup tureen and under plate, and four oval platters in varying sizes ****** The moulding and decoration on the smaller pieces is extremely attractive. All serious offers on multiple pieces will be considered. Combined shipping is always available. ****** !!!! Should someone wish to buy entire set (48 plates, plus all the serving pieces and platters the TOTAL price will be discounted to $500 plus shipping !!!!! *****
