Rare Pearlware Staffordshire Platter

ZOOLOGICAL SKETCHES ~ LEOPARD

Job Meigh & Son Potteries Staffordshire England c.1820

This is spectacular black Staffordshire transferware platter, c. 1820. It measures 14 3/4“ long and 11 1/2” across. It was impeccably potted and finely transfer printed in a rich and intense bittersweet black, with a pearlware glaze, gadrooned edge and scalloped rim.

The central well depicts a spotted leopard from Africa. There is another leopard chasing a gazelle or other species in the background of gorgeous high desert mountain scenery. The platter has a bold border with 4 birds along with lavish flowers and a butterfly. An absolutely stunning composition.

The platter was made by Job Meigh and Sons, c. 1820, and is part of the elusive the Zoological Sketches series. The series features different wild animals and other exotic creatures on each form.

The platter is in great condition, with no chips, cracks or repairs. The platter displays perfectly. This highly sought after platter will make a gorgeous centerpiece on any table or wall display of black transferware!
