£18.00Price

In the mid to late 19th century a type of pottery known as majolica was made by a  simple process (paint, fire) whereby coloured lead glazes were applied direct to an unfired clay mould, typically relief-moulded, resulting in brightly coloured, hard-wearing, inexpensive wares both useful and decorative, most commonly decorated with flora and fauna. This type of majolica was introduced to the public at the 1851 Great Exhibition in London, later widely copied and mass-produced. Minton & Co., who developed the coloured lead glazes product.

 

This is a majolica leaf plate, this style of ware was  produced by several Stafforshire pottery companies, and was very popular during the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. As this was a common design, we can source several of these leaf majolica plates if needed. 

 

The condition of this plate is good with no chips or cracks.  It has some very minor scuffs to the glaze.
