Offered is a pair of pearlware plates with blue transferprinted decoration in octagonal shape. The pattern shown is known today as the Returning Woodman and these were made by the Brameld pottery that later started producing porcelain and changed their name to the better known Rockingham Works, makers of many fine services. The Brameld mark is impressed on the back of each as shown and there is the expected bluish pooling of the glaze. These would date from about 1820. This factory never made much of a profit and at many times was in a state of bankruptcy. The earlier Brameld products are far less well known than the later Rockingham items.
Dimensions: Each is 8 1/4" from side to side and 8 13/16" diagonally.
Condition: Excellent: There are no chips or cracks and no repairs. The glaze is smooth and unworn, the color is good, and the print is clear.
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.
