c. 1870 George Jones English Majolica Fence Rail Cake Plate Faux Bois & Wild Roses
Here's an antique ex large English majolica cheese plate with a dome with a border that resembles a wooden plank fence with pretty pink Azaleas 🌸 or maybe wild roses and green leaves. It is in colors of brown, green and Pink. Made by George Jones, one of the most prolific of majolica manufactures and one of the most highly regarded and collected today.
Condition: There are no chips or cracks but some small paint flakes on the plate which I've photographed. It’s a beautiful piece!!!
Measures: appx 12 1/4”
Clearly marked with the GJ impressed stamp as well as an impressed number/letter combination, registration mark and is hand numbered.
