This is wonderfully decorative and equally useful 48 piece, full setting for 12 of Antique ‘Semi-China’, produced c 1907 by Wood & Son in England. A great example of the ever popular English blue and white transferware pottery of the turn of the century, this pattern is a gloriously deep blue denim background embellished with pretty florals and medallions in a lighter indigo blue, giving a striking contrast with the glossy pure white ground. The effect presents a slightly Oriental flair reminiscent of Chinese export china being copied for the ‘larger market. Although some examples of this pattern have gilded detail, this set does not, which will also make it completely dishwasher safe and easy to enjoy!
The pattern was created by Frederick Rhead in 1907 for these well known Staffordshire manufacturers and is known as ‘Khotan’.
The set offers 12 pieces- in each of 4 different sizes, which consist of:
10” dinner plates
7.5” Side Plates
9” Dessert Bowls
10” Soup or (in this day and age) perfect Pasta Bowls
All are marked with a blue underglaze with Khotan/Semi-Porcelain – the Wood & Sons mark and crown over a banner and England. This mark would put this set to between 1907-1910 when the mark changed to Wood & Sons Ltd.
Condition : Pristine
I have been unable to find any damage, chips, crazing or utensil marks to any piece in this very lightly used set. To find a full set of this age in such perfect, practically unused, condition is quite remarkable. A few pin head size drops of blue glaze can be seen on just a few pieces, which is a normal firing flaw and commonly seen in china produced at this time.
There are also numerous other serving pieces also in excellent condition in this wonderful pattern which will be listed separately to include, gravy boat and underplate, covered vegetable dishes, a large soup tureen and underplate, and four oval platters in varying sizes. So please do have a look at these other items in the shop. All serious offers on multiple pieces will be considered and combined shipping is always possible - please inquire.
