FINE STAFFORDSHIRE OR YORKSHIRE CREAMWARE ARCADED DISH IN BASKET WEAVE PATTERN C.1780-1800
Staffordshire or Leeds Creamware basket weave pattern dish c.1785-1815
"A lovely rare Staffordshire or Yorkshire English creamware arcaded dessert dish beautifully moulded and hand painted with subtle line decoration in chocolate brown. This basket weave pattern was made by both Wedgwood and Neale in Staffordshire and at the Leeds Pottery. Unfortunately many surviviving pieces are unmarked. This early example dates from c.1780-1800 and was probably used as a stand for a fruit basket. It is a rare item in our experience - one for both the series collector of English pottery and the decorative china cabinet display... Enjoy!" Antiques Expert Hamilton Bear.
