RUINS PATTERN BLUE AND WHITE PEARLWARE PLATE
beautiful early Chinoiserie blue and white design on an English
pearlware indented plate made by Davenport. It dates from c.1800, is known as the Chinoiserie Ruins
pattern and has the earliest Davenport mark a small anchor. This early
marked piece lends weight to the argument that Davenport may have been
the first makers of the Chinoiserie
Ruins pattern which was later copied by others. A super
reference and display piece for the discerning Staffordshire Blue and
antique pottery collector." Antiques Expert

width 203 mm max. approximately 7.9 inches.
As illustrated impressed small anchor to base.
Condition: A good early example. There is some light browning age-staining to the reverse of
the plate with several spots to the front which do not spoil the
front display view. One small flat rim chip at 8.00 o'clock has been
filled and painted to a good standard and is difficult to
spot and easily missed. The quality of
this piece for decorative display can still be appreciated
