This attractive oriental design seems to have been produced for a long period with many color and design variations. The transfers have been enhanced (clobbered) with Imari colors. There is a dragon curled around the vase on the left; pagodas are visible in the distance and flowers and geometrical designs adding to the beauty of this old cake plate. Reddish brown hand-painted colouring on the whole circumference of the rim completes this piece nicely. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE IRONSTONE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
GL Ashworth & Bros Ltd was founded in 1862 in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, producing earthenware and ironstone, later becoming MASONS PATENT IRONSTONE CHINA, and using the Masons mark.
