Offered is a pretty pair of Wedgwood creamware plates with an impressed mark on one. The rim decoration is finely done in a lemon yellow ground with a leaf and grass decoration. This type of ceramic was very popular in early America. The base without foot rim is typical of this period. These are former museum pieces, as can be seen by the accession numbers on the bottom, represented to me as being from the Museum of the City of New York.
Dimensions: Diameter of each is just under 10" and height is 1".
Condition: Excellent. the color is great, the glaze is smooth and the leaf painting is clear. There are no chips or hairlines, as is often the case. A spot is shown on each where there is a touch up to what appears to have been a small chip repair from the past which is not really apparent. Great early Wedgwood, marked as shown.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing defect or repair. While this is normal and to be expected I note any known issues in the condition descriptions.
