A wonderful example of early pearlware. Platters like this one were excavated at various early sites in the US; for example Williamsburg in Virginia. Since the early colonists were from the British Isles, they brought with them or ordered their chinaware from their homes. The platter is octagonal shaped with a embossed border covered with a dark blue feathered edge. It is referred to as Leeds ware but was made by many potteries in that period. It has blemishes, some manufacturing flaws and some from age. There is a large chip on the back, but it does not show on the front. It is a nice piece of early ceramics and early Americana. The dimensions are: 14-3/8" length, 11-1/4" wide and approximately 1-1/4" deep.
