For sale is the set of 3 antique plates. In my opinion, these are either 18th Century, directly influenced or made by Longton Hall or are imitations from the early or mid 19th Century. They are interesting nonetheless.
Almost identical to those made by Longton, I believe these were made by Derby, a company founded by Longton Hall enameler, William Duesbury. These are reminiscent of the Longton Hall strawberry leaf pattern, but the Rococo handles, gilt trim and floral details do not quite match the Longton Hall examples I've seen. There are two dinner sized plates, measuring approximately 9 1/8" in diameter, and one double handled plate that measures approximately 11 1/8" long and 8 7/8" wide.
Condition: There is wear to much of the paint and gilt trim. There is an internal crack (seen in the 4th and 5th pictures) on the handled plate that measures approximately 4" between ends if measured in a straight line. The crack is hard to see but easy to feel. The porcelain is old and the few tiny bubbles in the glaze are very dark. Some of the high points on the leaves have worn through, and many utensil/scratching marks can be seen on the surfaces.
