On offer is a pretty Staffordshire plate by Adams showing a scene from the series known as "the Sea". The series has a variety of scenes depicting anywhere from merriment at sea to, in this case, the result of a shipwreck. These are quite collectible and date from the 1830's. On the back are the three evenly spaced triple stilt marks verifying an early period plate.
Dimensions: Diameter is 9 3/8"
Condition: Very good. There are no chips or cracks, and no restoration other than a hardly noticeable touch up to a small spot on the rim as shown. The glaze is smooth and the transfer print is sharp and clear with good color.
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.
