This is a wonderful set of five matching deep green glazed majolica salad or dessert plates made by Wedgwood in the mid 19th Century in their pattern known as 'Sunflower'. The deep green glaze reflects a slight luster. They have an attractive scalloped basket weave edge which frames the shape of a stylized sunflower. They are all completely identical with the same impressed backstamp 'Wedgwood' made with a slug and the letter 'F', which I believe is the pattern. This 'Wedgwood' mark was used between 1781 and 1929. However, as Wedgwood instituted an additional 3 figure impressed mark to indicate year of manufacture in 1860, which these plates do not have, these were probably made in 1860 when majolica was first produced by Wedgwood.
All these plates are in pristine condition with absolutely no issues and only very little crazing. Perfect for continued use or for a decorative display on a dresser or wall. Their rich green is also a perfect accompaniment to many of the French Barbotine asparagus serving pieces.
8 5/8" diameter.
There are 5 other plates of the same pattern but of a slightly different age in the shop which go perfectly with this set if making up a service for up to 10 settings is of interest. Shipping can be combined. Shipping charges are set as default and if the actual cost is more than $5 less than that which has been paid, the difference will be refunded to the buyers Paypal account. Please do not hesitate to be in touch for more photos or questions.
