Offered is a well-made reticulated pearlware plate or stand with basket weave molding throughout. The crisp detail of the molding shows very well. On the back is the IH impressed mark of Joshua Heath who potted from about 1770 to about 1800. The form and the fact that it is in pearlware causes me to think this was made towards the end of production, about 1790's or 1800. The blue enamel trim complements the molding to give a nice balanced appearance. On the back are the stilt marks and pooling of the bluish glaze as expected.
Dimensions: The length is 8 7/8"and the width is 6 1/2".
Condition; Excellent. There are no chips or cracks and there is no restoration. The color of the enamel is good, the glaze is smooth and unworn and the molding stands out nicely. Well taken care of.
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.
