Offered is a creamware transferprinted plate showing a sailing ship flying the British Union Jack at sea. The ship is in full sail and the water has been colored with green enamel. The rim has a standard silver shape and the border has the small disheveled bird scenes commonly seen on these. The back has no mark other than the commonly found central circle and the glaze is tight and not alligatored indicating that this is an early period plate and not a later copy. Plates and serving pieces in creamware with this type of decoration were very popular during this period, particularly in America to which much of this was exported.
Dimensions: Diameter is 9.75 inches.
Condition: Good. There are no chips or cracks and there is no restoration. There are some small spots of discoloration as shown. The prints are good with no scratches which is the usual issue found with these. The glaze is smooth and unworn and the enamel shows well.
PLEASE NOTE: Ruby Lane must now charge sales tax if you live in a US state that has sales tax. All items are thoroughly cleaned with a spray sanitizer before being carefully packed using latex gloves. The item and packing material have generally been sitting untouched for quite a while (days, weeks) before packing.
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.
