STAFFORDSHIRE OR YORKSHIRE CREAMWARE ARCADED DISH IN BASKET WEAVE PATTERN
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

Good marked examples of this pattern can be found in the major
reference works on English Pottery. See section Creamware
and other English Pottery at Temple Newsam House Leeds, Peter
width 246 mm max.
In excellent overall condition and wonderful for display. No
restoration or significant defects. Minor traces of age wear and
rubbing to glazed edges of dish. These are as typically found on an
antique creamware pottery piece of this type. A very good example.
