Here is an antique creamware plate of the type that was made in the thousands by numerous small Staffordshire factories in England (and elsewhere) from the middle to the end of the eighteenth century. Since they were in constant use and were fairly fragile, most of them haven’t survived, and many that do survive have cracks. These kinds of plates are hardly ever marked by the makers, and the makers also imitated one another’s wares and designs, so it’s next to impossible to attribute any creamware piece to a specific location. Creamware was the standard pottery body in England for dinnerware until pearlware was developed and became popular. This plate is eight and three-eighths inches in diameter and in good condition except for some light and normal wear from use (several tiny edge chips repaired) and some touchups of very small chips in the colors. It looks terrific.
