An early (c. 1760) English Salt Glaze Deep Dish, 8 ¼” in diameter and about 1 ¼” deep. The surface of the plate is covered with rather intricate, and crisp, molded decorations: swags, panels, dots, basket weaves, etc. Every inch of the surface is covered with these molded decorations. I must assume this was a serving dish of sorts. It is in very fine condition or better, remarkable for a ceramic that is pushing 250 years in age. There are no cracks, chips or repairs on the surface of the plate, and even the high spots of the decoration do not show wear. There are a couple of nicks on the foot rim. Hard to find this type of plate in such outstanding condition.
