FLOW BLUE PLATTER 18 3/4" X 13 1/2"
MANUFACTURER FORD & SONS LTD. 1908
This large Flow Blue Platter measures 18 3/4" x 13 1/2". The pattern name is "Grecian". There is a gold line rim and the edge of the border is very dark cobalt blue outer band contained by a row of small double scrolls. The well is surrounded by a circle of threaded small quarter-foils. The two designs are connected by vertical lines of tiny beads. Small pointed stylized acanthus leaves are placed at the upper edge between the beaded lines. The back printed mark is the English mark of F. & Sons with "Grecian" in a banner; Burslem and a letter F. ( circa 1908 ). The condition is very good. There is one small glaze pop in the well. On the back rim, there is one small chip which does not show through on the front. There is no crazing. Very clean and nice with a non-fussy good looking pattern.
