On offer is a Spode pearlware dessert dish of shell shaped form that was originally part of a dessert service. The pattern number of the decoration is 3021 and dates from about 1825 to the end of the first Spode period in 1833. The decoration consists of a combination of underglaze blue transfer printed design and overglaze pink and red hand-enameled flowers which I have seen on other wares typical of this end of the period. The gilding is very finely done mercury gilding as expected. In great condition, this striking piece stands out on display.
Dimensions: Length is 9" and width is 7 3/4". The height is just under 2".
Condition: Excellent. There are no chips, cracks, or repairs. The glaze is smooth and unworn and the color is bright and unworn. The gilding is expertly done with no wear at all. It looks like it was never used.
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.
