Description

A rare large , multicoloured, Bristol delft plate, with scalloped edge, the centre delicately painted with a lakeside scene and two figures conversing. This is the highly fashionable Chinoiserie taste which swept the country at this time. Bianco supra bianco was probably introduced into England by Magnus Lundburg, an artisan from the Rorstrand factory in Sweden, in the 1750s, who was likely employed at the Redcliff Back Pottery in Bristol.
As is usual with delftware there are some nibbles to the edge.
SIZE: 12 inches diameter.
PROVENANCE: The Collection of Sir William Whitfield CBE, St Helen Hall, County Durham. (Image 4)
