Antique ENGLISH Platter DORSET H. H. & G. LTD. Teal TRANSFER
English DORSET TRANSFER WARE platter
in TEAL by H. H. & G. Ltd.
Welcome to our fantastic Antique ENGLISH
transfer ware listing! This fabulous oval platter is simply
exquisite! Believed to be over 100 years old, it is detailed
with a lovely transfer ware in teal. It is also edged with gold
trim, though we do see that most of that has worn off, due to
years of loving use no doubt!
The transfer ware patter is quite unusual
as we see one border of teal and the pattern is the white base
showing through. We see oranges, leaves and perhaps orange blossoms.
The second border which runs inside the last, looks like delicate
swags with bows and perhaps pearls, in teal.
This platter has the makers markings
on the under side which read in teal ink, DORSET H. H. &
G. Ltd. L. We also see an imprint of the numbers 325.
Oval in shape, it measures roughly
16 1/8" long and 12 5/8" wide. It comes to us in great
condition, for what we believe to be an item over 100 years
old. We do not see any cracks, chips or crazing, though we do
see that there is a flea bite along the outer rim and the bottom
side has two flakes on the bottom edge. Again most of the gold
edging has worn off but the transfer is in good condition and
there is still great shine to the glaze.
This would make a great addition to
any collection and certainly make entertaining for the upcoming
holidays that much more festive! Don't let it get away!
