C.1840 English Ridgway Transferware, C. 1840
A lovely English Transferware, under-plate, C. 1840. This plate measures 7 1/2 inches across from molded hand hold to hand hold, and sits 1 inch high because of the raised under base-rim.
This was made by John Ridgway, Staffordshire, England. The plate has a blue pearlware glaze as can be seen in the crevasse of the the molded design on in the base-rim. Condition is VERY good with no chips or cracks. There is the normal crazing to the final glaze that happens in the kiln.
