STAFFORDSHIRE RARE IRONSTONE POTTERY CHINOISERIE FANCY BIRDS PLATE,
PATTERN NO. 4401 C.1836-41
wonderful Staffordhire Ironstone or Stone China Fancy Birds pattern
plate which is stylistically from the same school as Staffordshire
Masons Ironstone and Spode Stone China of the period. Fortunately the
presence of the very rare Minton and Boyle mark on another identical
pattern piece now sold means we can correctly attribute this fine
English pottery antique to this early Minton partnership. The pattern
on this piece - Minton number 4401 is taken directly from an earlier
Chinese Export Qianlong design. An important reference
example for the knowledgeable and serious antique pottery collecto." Antiques

We have previously sold another marked example of this piece with
pattern number 4401 hand written in red inside a
printed cartouche mark for Minton and Boyle: the Minton partnership
from 1836-41. This pattern wsas later renumbered by Minton -
some of the best earlier designs were later cut out from old pattern
books and pasted into newer ones. The pattern book design is

pattern number 4401 and painted and impressed potter's marks as
width 260 mm max. approximately 10 1/4 inches.
Excellent condition for display with no edge chips, cracks, or
restoration or significant defects. Some typical minor rubbing wear to
painted decoration and some short faint
clear surface scratches to glaze visible on close inspection. Both are
easily missed and do not detract from the overall decorative qualities
