Presenting an early 19th century Masons Ironstone platter in their pattern, India Grasshopper Blue With Color. The octagonally shaped platter features sprays of peonies and other flowers surrounding a stunning center filled with large flowers. The underglaze cobalts are stepped up with red and green enamels.

Charles James Mason registered his Patent Ironstone China trademark in 1813. Mr. Mason was an astute entrepreneur who had already been involved in the early 18th century porcelain import trade from China by the East India Company. When bulk imports basically stopped in the late 18th century, Mr. Mason turned his skills to the manufacture of ceramics in the “Chinese style.” Ironstone, a dense opaque, earthenware, lent itself well to decoration in under-glaze blues as well as the over-glaze enamels. Mason’s wares were an instant success and have remained highly desirable with collectors for almost 200 years. Their decorative patterns, many in a primitive Chinoiserie style, remain unsurpassed for their charm and earthy beauty.

The platter is in excellent age appropriate condition with some wear indicated to the overglaze enamels.

Size: 14 ½” Length by 11 Width.
