To think this plate/bowl could possibly be 180 years old is just amazing in its self, let alone, that is in excellent condition for its age! Honestly this is a piece that any collector shouldn’t pass up! This plate shows one of a series of views of what is said to be the oldest inhabited city of the world -- held at different times by the Romans, the Arabs, and the Turks. The black transfer is still crisp showing great detail of the pattern. The main transfer depicts figures riding horses, or in a chariot in the foreground close to an elaborate domed gazebo, a river is nearby, and a complex of buildings with minarets appear in the background. The inner and outer sides have three panels in black transfer with riders or buildings. Adam’s “Damascus” pattern was acquired by George Jones Company in the Stoke 1861 Adams' bankruptcy auction and was then used on his pieces. Excellent condition with no chips or cracks. It does have some residue on the reverse side as if it had been glued to something and used as a display piece once upon a time. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE EARTHENWARE / 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
