This early 19th C Pearlware dessert dish by Wedgwood was decorated and painted with lovely restraint and lots of white space. The pattern number 1268 is handpainted in black on the back. The dish is marked "WEDGWOOD" only. Note: the letters have been individually impressed, and are not in a straight line. The pattern number is from Wedgwood's Pattern Book 2, which reaches the pattern number 1284 by 1814. With these facts, I can date this dish c 1814.
The dish is about 9-3/4" long x 7-1/2" wide. It has an applied foot rim. You can see where the cobalt glaze (which makes this earthenware dish pearlware) has pooled a bit around the foot rim.
The condition is very good. No cracks, no crazing, no repairs, and virtually no wear. There are 4 tiny chips to the back edge, and 1 larger chip on the back. Luckily, these are not visible from the front. I have taken a close-up of the large chip and one of the small ones for you to see.
