Antique Wedgwoood Plates - 1878Wedgwood
Set of three Antique Wedgwood Plates - designed by Thomas Allen who joined Wedgwood in 1875 and was renowned for his technical skill in figure art on ceramics in the 19th century. You can find his initials in the Staffordshire Knot that's next to the inscription toward the center of the plates. This plate design was originally part of the Banquet series used by the first class patrons who were housed in the North Head Quarantine Station in Australia in the late 1800's. Even while in quarantine, they were accustomed to a privileged lifestyle. These plates are both historically interesting and aesthetically significant due to their beautiful design. Each plate has the impressed Wedgwood mark on the underside. This collection of three includes the Mutton, Fish, and Venison patterns.
- Each measure about 10" in diameter.
- Plates are dated 1878 by the date-marking on the underside.
- Made in Staffordshire, England.
- Part of our Estate Collection and in very good vintage condition, but each has varying levels of wear. All of them have some crazing, some lighter than others. There is some minor finish loss and utensil marks as well.
