PAIR OF 2 ANTIQUE WHITE IRONSTONE PLATES!
MAKER: T & R BOOTE,
Staffordshire England
EARLY DATE: DIAMOND DATED: 1851
PATTERN: SYDENHAM - Boote made several variations of the Sydenham shape. I call this one 'SIMPLE SYDENHAM', as it was the simplest in border design.
SIZE: 7.5" INCHES ACROSS
FEATURES:
** Wonderful WHITE Ironstone with that coveted subtle bluish gray tint!
** Each is impressed with the Diamond Date Mark and Maker's Name ** Nice size for Salads, Dessert, etc.
CONDITION: GOOD ** These are 2 plates that were actually used! ** They have expected utensil marks, and lots of wear from the glazing in the well areas. ** The RELIEF definition is quite poor - not very distinct, but identifiable ** Expected CHARACTERISTICS of ANTIQUE WHITE IRONSTONE are found in these lovely plates as well. They are: 1. Tiny POT STONES, indigenous to the medium of that era 2. Slight WER and DISCOLORATION on their edges 3. A few small PITS where pot stones have fallen away 4. STILT MARKS on their backsides
GREAT TO FIND THIS SIZE!
An adorable pair to add to your Ironstone Collection!
