On offer is a large staffordshire charger or soup bowl decorated in a pattern known as Feather and this title appears in the printed mark on the back as shown. The maker is the factory of Wood and Challinor and this partnership was in business from 1828 to 1843.
The decoration consists of large green transfer printed boughs containing enameled flowers. The bowl is perfectly usable for serving or containing fruit or pastries as well as for display.
Dimensions: Diameter is just under 10 3/4" and the height is 2".
Condition: Good. There are no chips or cracks. There is touch up to two spots on the back near the mark as shown and there are two kiln firing lines from when it was made, also as shown, that are visible only on close inspection. The two touch up spots may have been over two other firing line separations as these lines are very common on wares from this period. Otherwise, the color and decoration is good and is clear, and the glaze is smooth and unworn.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing flaw or repair. While this is normal and to be expected, I note any known issues in the condition description.
