This is one of two very attractive covered vegetable dishes in the stylish 'Khotan' blue and white pattern produced by well known Staffordshire potters Wood & Sons in around 1907. Although they are being sold separately, this is one of a identical pair.
The dish measures 11.5" long and 8 3/4" wide with a depth of about 2 1/4".
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 transferware 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. The handle on the lid of this piece is particularly lovely as is the shape of the dish.
Marked with a blue under glaze 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 mark changed to Wood & Sons Ltd.
