Offered for sale is a delightful 19th century Staffordshire blue and white meat platter with impressed tree and well. The unusual Chinoiserie scene on both the face of the platter and in the scenic linear vignettes on the border has yet to be identified, but it is most idyllic. This is a fine example of the printing process known as “underglaze tissue printing” which was first used in Great Britain as early as 1750 and later perfected to use on ceramics in the 19th century.
The platter is in very good condition with minor age-related discoloration to the back, the front is fine with expected minor scratch marks.
Size: 18 3/8” Length by 14” Width.
