Antique 17th Century Delft Tin Glazed Polychrome Shallow Dish - Northern France (Code 1898)
An interesting delft pottery large shallow dish. The earthenware body has a tin glaze with manganese, blue, yellow and green detail with a hint of red lining. The pattern form and strokes are comparable to Southwark delft of the 17th century with London delft fragments recovered from the Thames similar in both colour and pattern form. The addition of the red lining however perhaps suggest it is more likely to be Northern French. Workers did of course move around during this period and there was much interspersing of styles and techniques. The reverse appears to be covered in a pale slip and the glaze is has distinct greenish hue at the thicker areas to the reverse. There is also a single pierced hole to the foot rim pre firing. Due to the nature of this piece and the subtleties between delft regions you are welcome to view by arrangement to study the piece in person before purchasing to make your own assessment should you wish.
Broken and re-stuck, the fracture lines quite visible in the images. Additionally an old tinker style staple repair. Damage to the rim. Glaze wear is surprisingly restrained. Loss of foot rim piece where the hole was pierced originally.
