ENGLISH PEARLWARE POTTERY FISHERMAN AND  CASTLE PATTERN TRANSFERWARE BLUE AND WHITE PLATE C.1800-1810

"A particularly attractive and rare English pearlware pottery blue and white transfer printed plate of quality with distinctive indented edge. The design is a delight. Known as the Fisherman and Castle pattern it successful combines elements of chinoiserie with European gothic elements to produce a fascinating early transitional blue printed picture dating c.1800-1810. Unfortunately at time of writing it is not known who made this piece as a marked example is yet to be discovered. Although, clues are there including the distinctive plate shape and impressed asterix cypher mark to the reverse. A wonderful piece worthy of the best English pottery collection and further research." Antiques Expert Hamilton Bear.
