A wonderful pair of early oval blue and white pearlware dishes that were produced in England at the beginning of the 19th century, circa 1810. Originally part of a complete child's toy dinner service; their small dimensions would now allow them to be used as a platter or fruit bowl for your very special antique doll. The blue and white transfer printed pattern features a farmer stood resting on a fence with an open gate, the pattern is variation of the “Village Church” pattern with a 'rose border'. See our images with a standard thimble used for scale purposes and also a gorgeous blue miniature folk art dresser (retailed separately).
Measuring: 3.75” (9.5 cm) by 2.75” (7 cm). Height 7/8” (2 cm).
Condition: Both items will display excellently. There is natural crazing throughout and some kiln dust; as seen on our images one of the dishes has an old chip to the rim and a vertical hairline which runs from the rim down to the base. The remaining dish has three small chips to the rim. There are early pieces of pottery and are uncommon, they are the perfect item for the doll collector or toy pottery and porcelain collector.
