Highly decorative... this 8 3/4" (22.2 cm) Wedgwood Majolica reticulated plate is striking in its color combination and design. The kelly green central portrait was glazed in the 'Email Ombrant' manner, somewhat of a specialty of the Wedgwood company at the time. "The art or process of flooding transparent colored glaze over designs stamped or molded on earthenware or porcelain". Quoted from Wiktionary with thanks. Here it portrays a somber & cold looking girl that reminds me of the "Little Match Girl" from the short story by Danish poet and author Hans Christian Andersen, first published in 1845. She is surrounded by a lovely periwinkle border featuring garlands of ivy entwined with a yellow ribbon. The reddish brown reticulated border edged in mustard yellow makes for a striking contrast. The plate bears the Wedgwood code for the year 1871 as well as the "M" which stands for Majolica. In outstanding condition, just a short shallow scratch to the left of the girl's hair stops me from calling it Mint. It shows in one of my photos.
