On offer is an interesting nautical plate made by the factory of Anthony Scott & Sons, Scott's Southwick Pottery. This is a Sunderland style depiction of the ship, the Duke of Wellington, and that title with 131 Guns, which it apparently had is the title of the scene. This would have been made about 1854 or so to about 1870. There is a pink lustre trim around the rim ad the ship and scene were transfer printed with enamel colors then added which was the usual method of decorating nautical plates from back in the late 1700's. There are old notations on the back as can be seen and the impressed Scott mark.
Dimensions: Diameter is 9 1/4"
Condition; Excellent. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. The glaze is smooth and unworn. The print is very clear and the enamel is colorful with no wear. There is a very faint vertical line line through the sails that can hardly be seen and looks more like a transferprint line than a glaze line.
There is a slight smudge to the print on the bow of the ship that appears to be in the making. These are mentioned for accuracy as the total print looks great.
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.
