This large platter, 18 1/2 inches by 16 inches, is titled 'Pagoda'. It was produced by Enoch Wood and Sons circa 1830 and combined the Asian and English influences of the day. The flowers,of course, are English, as is the fruit. The buildings are Asian but they are certainly a minor part of the composition. Also, notice the butterflies in the border. I find it a very romantic platter.
Condition: The platter has one flaw which is the half inch long chip to the gadrooned edge between three and four o'clock. It does not go thru to the reverse. Otherwise, it is in very good shape. No cracks or restoration. Three stilt marks on the front. Normal wear on the reverse.
