Antique Georgian Staffordshire Salt Glaze Stoneware Pierced Border Fruit Plate (Code 1425)
An 18th century Georgian period English stoneware bodied plate. It has a cream salt glaze and features a reticulated rim. These items are usually described as being fruit plates or dessert plates and conventional dating is around 1760 making them late George II or early George III period. This item would come from the Staffordshire region and would have been a luxury item in its day, certainly not for working class people of the period. The center has a bordered chevron design and there are decorative scrolls at the margin which are perhaps more French in style than English despite the Staffordshire origin.
There is a firing crack to the body reaching one of the reticulations caused during manufacture. There is a further short firing crack with associated hairline from the rim. Normal kiln dust and frit adhered to the surface, a common feature at this period.
