Featured Need Help Identifying Majolica Leaf Platter

Discussion in 'Pottery, Glass, and Porcelain' started by Not Sure What This Is, Nov 13, 2023.

  1. Hi,
    The only mark on this is a hand applied X with 2 dots. I can't find a similar example. Wondering if anyone has a clue as to origin or maker.
    Thanks! Majolica-Botanical-Leaf-Platter-.jpg Majolica-Botanical-Leaf-Platter-3.jpg

    That is very nice. I don't know anything about it, though.

    Almost certainly British. Mid nineteenth ish. God knows who.

    The mark is the decorators piece work mark, so that they got paid.

    It’s a pattern that was made by several factories, too.

    OP's photo is much better than the Ruby Lane photo. IMO.

    I was thinking very early wedgwood or minton perhaps. A lot of factories did the cabbage ware type thing though.

    It looks like a grapevine leaf to me.:confused:

    Disclaimer is in the 'type thing'. I reserve the right to be vague and tell lies.

    Vine, indeed.

    Not a Wedgwood back or body, imo.

  14. That is interesting - I was unaware of this
     
  15. The yellow finish on the handles and the edge lack sharp definition, so I would agree not Wedgwood. I was a little surprised by the way that this was finished, which is why I wasn't sure if it was British
