Beautiful early Ironstone Display Plate or Under Plate, may have been married to a huge tureen. She has now been separated for quite some time, and is just fine on her own. Made by Josiah Wedgwood, England, this has all the craquelure, patina and what my European dealer friends call "buttered" finish you will love. She is not a new chick and has been around a block a few times...but this only makes her much more exceptional!
There are scrolled design handles with a feminine style, and slight raised lip in the center. I love this, it's perfect for presenting appetizers, little French desserts for tea, or just to display with a collection of antique French and English Ironstone.
