Early Staffordshire Creamware Plate ~ Whieldon Green Yellow Splotches ~ C1760 Nr:
A Staffordshire Silver Shape Gadrooned Rim Lead Glaze Creamware Plate circa 1760
~ Thomas Whieldon Tortoiseshell Glaze with Green and Yellow Splotches ~
9 1/2" in diameter
An early English Thomas Whieldon type creamware plate with wavy silver shaped rim with gadrooned edging and fine molded double line, the plate sponged with manganese brown to give the 'tortoiseshell' effect and with large round splotches or daubs of deep green and yellow oxide. The back is all uniformly sponged in manganese.
In excellent display condition although it does have a chip to the footrim and hairline coming from it which comes through to the front, the line is very fine and the surface of the plate is otherwise very glossy with very few imperfections.
Seen below, you can see the hairline which goes from the edge to just inside the cavetto or flat part of the plate.
The iridescent spots you see (above) are something you usually see on green glazed creamware, an effect like 'wet gasoline spilled on cement' to quote a friend, this is usual for that type of glaze and can be seen here on the green spots.
Below, the chip on the footrim is seen at 10 o'clock, all other white spots are light reflections.
