This is a lovely example of a gravy boat and underplate in the ‘Khotan’ pattern made by Wood & Son in England - c. 1907.
Known as ‘Semi-China’, and it indeed has the 'feel' of china rather than pottery, 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 underglaze with: Khotan/Semi-Porcelain/Wood & Sons and the Wood & Sons crown over a banner and England. This mark would put this piece to between 1907-1910 when the mark changed to Wood & Sons Ltd.
Gravy Boat 8” in length/Underplate 8.5” in length. Condition is pristine – no chips, cracks, utensil marks, damage or crazing. Very lightly used - if at all.
