Antique Delft Pottery Charger Plate Floral Pattern 18th c Dutch Blue & White


Brand Etsy

This is an antique 18th century Delft pottery charger made in a shallow bowl-like shape. It is decorated with a floral / foliate pattern in blue underglaze against white with a yellow painted edge. I have not been able to identify the maker associated with the mark on the back of the piece. The piece measures 12 3/8 in diameter with a height of 2 at the edge. It is in very good condition with the exception of some chipping to the edge of the piece (please view the enlarged photos) - you can see marks on the underside caused by a hanger wire. The damage is very typical of old Delftware and does not detract in any major way from the enjoyment of the piece.
The painted image is fairly complex - this is a very nice example of Delft pottery, a pattern that I havent seen elsewhere
