Beginning in the 1840's, English potters began to ship white ironstone ceramic ware to the U.S., decorated with copper lustre bands and/or simple motifs, made exclusively for the American market. Anthony Shaw is considered to have produced the original tea leaf motif, registered in 1856. The tea leaf motif was made by dozens of English and American potters until the beginning of the 20th century.

This ironstone tea leaf serving platter was made by the Mellor, Taylor Company, England, circa 1880-1904. Unique rectangular shape with Embossed ribbed border with wide copper lustre edge. It measures 14" in length and 10" in width. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; several minor glaze blemishes.
