This large Staffordshire "well and tree" meat platter has an all over transfer decoration. A bold floral border with framed scenes surrounds a central scene of a Gothic style church. According to Coysh, the scenes in this series were based on a series of engravings by W. Angus, in the late 18th century. This platter dates circa 1825-30, and is probably by one of the Ridgway family members.
An impressive size, it would be the focal point of a blue and white display in your cupboard.
Note: International shipping is not available for this item.
Size: Approximately 21" long, 16.5" wide, 2.5" high.
Condition: Excellent. Some utensil scratches, rubbing at edge points. No chips, cracks or repairs.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, I would expect a return if I happen to miss anything.
