A Superb 18th Century Whieldon Dinner Plate, Circa 1770 For Sale

A Superb 18th Century Whieldon Dinner Plate, Circa 1770

rhusrluk rhusrluk
Antique pottery in good taste – harmic.little   A magnificent Whieldon-type lead-glazed earthenware dinner
plate of silver shape with a neat 'cabled' edge; the base dark 
brown 'flecked' glaze interspersed with 'windows' of green
and gray-blue metallic oxide colors; Staffordshire,
circa 1765 - 1775.  It is now well-established, thanks to the work of David Barker and others over the last ten years or so, that so-called 'Whieldon' wares of this general type were made at a number of different potteries in the Staffordshire area. Clearly it was the case then, as today, that if a particular fashion was in demand, different manufacturers were very quick to produce it.   This stunningly beautiful press-molded plate of Whieldon type has a soft earthenware body coated with a shiny lead glaze (in reality a sort of proto-creamware). The surface was probably decorated using a combination of both powdered and brushed colors. The background of dark flecked brown (derived from manganese) was possibly applied by blowing it onto the surface through a straw or other suitable tool.   Set in this background rich brown color are random 'windows' of green and gray-brown metallic oxides. The overall effect, as you can see from the photographs, is quite wonderful, and has an extraordinarily contemporary feel to it.  As we have remarked before, the people who used plates like this in the eighteenth century didn't just eat, they dined!   This superb Whieldon plate is in excellent condition.  There is a single short firing crack on the rim which occurred during the manufacturing, but absolutely no chips or restoration. For a period item of English pottery this is about as good as it gets! The diameter is 9 ¼ inches.   This is a wonderful clean plate for your specialist collection of early Staffordshire or for display in your home.  Really a wonderful piece and we hope you like it.   Good luck - thank you for offerding with harmic.little Absolutely guaranteed authentic.
