Circa 1830’s RARE Pink & Black Bi Color Floral Transferware Plate SHIRAZ Ridgway
Brand Nancy's Daily Dish
After 1828, technology allowed potters to produce two and three color transfer wares. This truly stunning example dating from 1830-1841, by Ridgway is a very highly sought after piece in the Shiraz pattern, named after a Persian city. The plate is heavily embellished with flowers and the border has a design of sailing boats. The design was originally produced in a range of colors including yellow with green, yellow with brown, blue and pink (both of which were sometimes accented with black as is the case with this plate). The intricacy in transfer placement on this piece is unsurpassed. It's truly an exquisite piece even for the most selective of collectors.
Condition: Beautiful! No chips or cracks. Stilt marks, minor glaze pops (common during production of this time period), light crazing
