Antique AdamsMulberry "Bologna" 15.25"Platter
Antique Adams Staffordshire England platter made between 1820 to 1830s.
This is a Mulberry Purple Platter. Made by Adams, it has the impressed "Adams" name on the back. The pattern name is "Bologna" which has a center scene of people in a gondola with stately buildings in the background, flowers, bushes and trees. The border has squiggle garlands with 8 panels of more buildings with people, and flowers.
Measures 15.25"wide x 12.25" tall.
This is an ironstone piece so the ware is rather thick and heavy.
Condition: Made between 1820 to 1830s. Has a 4.25" crack. Has a couple of bubbles in the glaze, has a couple of nicks, see photos. Edges have some rubbing, and some roughness on parts of the edge. Has a 2mm x 2.5mm nick on the edge also, see photo. Has some light brown staining on the front near the crack, but it's more noticeable on the back. Still a stunning display piece.
I've had this piece in my displaycase for years. The brown staining on the front around the crack isn't distracting to the beauty of the platter.
