Delftware Plate, Lambeth or Liverpool, c.1760

 

Painted with a Chinese river landscape including towering rocks, fisherman in a sampan and a house. The design also includes a bizarre trellis border and rather curious orb-like shapes, probably a misinterpretation by the artist of various elements occurring in the original Chinese pattern.

Condition: No cracks or restoration, just typical losses to the brittle tin glaze.

Dimensions: Diameter 23.5 cm

Delftware: The Tin-glazed Earthenware of the British Isles, Michael Archer (V&A/HMSO, 1997).
