Incredibly impressive, Circa 1815-1825, this monumental meat platter is in the Old Willow Pattern. This pattern is featured in "Willow Pattern China" (1991) Page 13 Fig.5. It is Staffordshire Blue transferware (or transfer ware). Early pieces such as this were not marked, it is attributed by the author of the book to Turnstall Staffordshire origin.
This monumental meat platter is not to be confused with the late 19th Century to mass produced 20th Century Blue Willow ware. This meat platter has a deep well, high footed rim as shown. The transferware Staffordshire is now called Old Willow to differentiate from the more contemporary transfer ware. It measures 20.5" in length, approx. 15" wide. This is a very scarce early Staffordshire Transfer ware tray platter.and in very fine condition and rich color. This comes from a collector's lifetime collection of rare and scarce Staffordshire.
We will send it by specialty packer so in the US if it is more than $75 (it is very large and heavy) we will absorb the difference., .
