Extraordinary and hard to find large antique English Chinoiserie bright orange oval platter decorated with foo dogs / lions and a center white reserve with a group of five people, in an outdoor setting, playing a board game. The platter is marked on the underside with an impressed ASHWORTH in capital letters and a hand-painted red code B3595. We have seen similar items described as Bandana Ware and dated 1862 to 1880 period. Matching set of six small plates listed separately. Fabulous as a bold wall decoration for a country / traditional style setting combined with the six matching plates or alone. In very good used condition with fine crazing, slight paint wear, small scratches and minor underside loss typical of antique ironstone. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
Measurements: 13 3/4" long by 11" high approximately.
