ANTIQUE MASON'S Ironstone GRASSHOPPER Soup Plate c1815
Description

This auction is for a beautiful antique ironstone soup plate from Mason's in their 'Indian Grasshopper' design which features a wealth of oriental blossoms and a grasshopper perched on a leaf.

The plate is fully marked for Mason's with a backstamp and impressed mark dating it to between 1815 and 1820. The impressed mark is a single line reading 'Mason's patent ironstone china' and the backstamp is the blue banner style with large spaces between the letters.

The plate is in lovely condition with no chips, cracks, crazing nor repairs. The colours are bright and the use of flatware is only noticed when held to the light. I would say excellent for almost 200 years of age.

It measures 9.5 inches (24 cm) in diameter and 1.5 inches (3.5 cm) deep.
