These handsome scalloped 10-1/4" plates are in very good, usable condition. I date them pre-1840.
This pattern can be found in several different colorways, and has two names: "Canton" or "Chinese Mountain". "Canton" is the factory name, found on patterns in the second Factory pattern book, watermarked 1832 and 1834. Information from the Mason's Collectors Club states that "like many of the patterns from this period, numerous variants exist. The variations are mostly in coloring.
There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing, and no repairs. Each plate rings when tapped. The plate on the left has some utensil marks, and a few small spots of wear to the glaze (luckily in the white background, and not effecting the pattern). The plate on the right has some utensil marks, and an "in-the-making" glaze frit at the 4 o'clock position. Both plates display beautifully
The price listed is for the pair. Let me know if you are interested in just one of the plates.
Please see another plate I have available in this pattern which has a red ground and is heavily enameled and gilded.
