This attractive 8-3/4" plate is liberally gilded. The Transferware Collectors Club website calls this pattern "Basket Japan", but an internet search shows the more popular name is "Japan Basket". It has the one line impressed mark "MASON'S PATENT IRONSTONE CHINA", which dates the plate 1813-25.
The shaped plate is in excellent condition. There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing, and no repairs. The gilding has not been scratched by utensils. The plate rings when tapped.
The Mason Collectors Club code number is OD1 Basket Japan, the name being taken from the 1818 auction list discussed in Godden's "Guide to Ironstone, Stone and Granite Wares". A similar pattern is illustrated on a tureen in Godden's "Mason’s China and the Ironstone Wares", plate 151.
