Rare Staffordshire Pearlware ~ Lions ~ Dark Blue Transferware Plate C1830 Af Nr:
A Rare Staffordshire Pearlware Dark Blue Transferware Plate c1820
~ The Lions Pattern ~ William Adams & Sons ~ As Found ~
10" in diameter
This pattern is illustrated on page 22 of Snyder's Romantic Staffordshire book, showing a platter with this same scene of an angry male looking down over the female and her cubs. This plate is unmarked, but there are marked examples by William Adams & Sons circa 1820. Beside a platter and the 10" plate, the pattern was also used on smaller plates.
Unfortunately, the crack goes through about 3/4of the plate and probably should be stabilized and restored. At a short distance on your display shelf it looks ok; the surface of the plate is glossy and there are no chips; see the photo of the back, there are two other short hairlines, one of which very faintly comes through to the front. Sold strictly as found.
