Antique Rathbone Ironstone Dessert Plate Transfer Printed and Hand Coloured Pekin Gaudy Willow Pattern number 1 circa 1840 21.9 cm diameter


A very decorative and collectable antique Rathbone ironstone dessert plate dating from around 1840 - the early Victorian period. The plate has a transfer printed pattern in black and this has been partially hand coloured in enamels.  Some collectors refer to this as Gaudy Willow.

There are no maker's marks to identify a maker just a hand painted No. 1 and and a+ painters mark. However this pattern is recorded as being made by the Rathbones of Tunstall, Staffordshire England, who operated from 1835 until 1843. Please see the Northern Ceramics Society newsletter number 200  April 2021, page 26 for the excellent article by Ian Harvey on Rathbone Earthenware and the Pekin Pattern.

The Chinese style pattern contains elements of the Pekin, Chili and Willow patterns. The plate is 8 5/8 inches in diameter and weighs 397 grammes unpacked. It is in good antique condition with a little body crazing and some scratching and rubbing, commensurate with age and use. 

This is a nice plate to add to any collection. Please take a look at my other items listed for sale this week including more antique ceramics.
