Offered is a pearlware bread dish with blue transfer print in the scene, Landing of General Lafayette at Castle Garden, by R&J Clews. This series is extremely popular and collectible with collectors and is in the very dark blue that was so popular in early Federal America. General Lafayette came over from France during the American revolution to help the colonies and then revisited the new United States of America as an older man in 1824 to the applause of many people here. This bread dish has the usual stilt marks and bluish pooling of the glaze as expected on an authentic piece.
Dimensions: The width is 6" and the length is 8 1/2". The height of this deep dish is 1 3/4".
Condition: Very good. There is a 1 1/8" touch up to a likely chip repair on the bottom of the rim as shown. Otherwise there are no chips, cracks or restoration. The print is clear, the color dark, and the glaze is very shiny 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.
