Here is a gorgeous example of a popular design motif, the Chinoiseries style of decoration that was so well-known in the eighteenth century and early nineteenth century all over Europe. The plate is very bright white, unusually so, and the dark cobalt blue of the handpainted pagoda contrasts very nicely. The only damage is a tiny chip on the blue rim, colored in so as not to be noticeable (shown). As you can see in the photos, there is hardly any wear to the bright decoration. The plate is eight and one-eighth inches across. The factories in Leeds made many examples of this type of plate, but other factories also used the same design, and few are marked. They are often referred to as Leeds-type.
