This is a very attractive covered vegetable dish in the stylish 'Khotan' blue and white pattern produced by well known Staffordshire potters Wood & Sons in around 1907.
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.
Although they are being sold separately, this is one of a identical pair.
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 set to between 1907-1910 when the mark changed to Wood & Sons Ltd.
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.
This piece is one of many in this wonderful pattern, including a gravy boat and underplate, a tureen with underplate, platters and a full 48 piece dining service setting for twelve, all of which are available in the shop, so please do view the other listings.
