1820s Blue & White Georgian era Staffordshire Pearlware Plate with Sporting Hunting Scene. This is a blue and white 10 inch English pottery Staffordshire transferware dinnerware plate with a graphic hunting scene.
It has a beautiful early Oriental Sports mark with Royal Crown on reverse, maker unknown, but assumed made in the Staffordshire, England Potteries. The plate is in medium blue & white transferware detail on a clean white/blue tinged pearlware base. It's a lovely soft glossy pottery with an overall faint blue/grey tint derived from a touch of cobalt blue in the glaze. This cool blue tinge gives a whiter china appearance than the earlier yellow creamware. The source for scene for this early 1820's blue and white transferware plate is a print called.
Death of the Bear by artist Samuel Howitt, from a rare book of his antique sports prints called Oriental Field Sports: Wild Sports of the East first published in London by Edward Orme in 1807. This mark cannot be absolutely attributed to him. It measures 10 inches, condition is beautiful, no cracks, chips or repairs. Just an uncommon early antique piece we were thrilled to find recently in Devon.
Size: 10 inches in diameter. Please contact me if I can be of any other help.
