Antique Ashworth Bros Ironstone Plate Hizen Pattern 19th c Aesthetic Era Polychrome


Brand Etsy

This is a lovely English Ironstone plate made by Ashworth Bros, sometimes during the second half of the 19th century. The plate is decorated in the polychrome Hizen pattern, an Aesthetic Movement era design. The Aesthetic movement was highly influenced by Japanese art and design - one can see the Japanese influence on the decoration of this plate. The marking on the underside of the plate was used after 1862 and before 1891. The plate measures 10 1/4 in diameter and is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, crazing or pronounced wear - a bit of wear to the red line trim and a very light scratch through the pink flower, but both are very minor. Nice Aesthetic design display plate....
