1830 Unusual Early SA & Co Alcock Japanese Purple Transferware Platter



This is truly a beautiful piece of early Staffordshire pottery. It has an early SA & Co, Samuel Alcock mark, see photos. This ashet, meat plate or platter measures 13 inches, I'd say a medium size platter, fine and beautiful. It is not heavy and thick, it is more fine and classic.

It has wonderful purple lavender color that Alcock did so well. It was found in Exeter, Devon and is stunning. Condition is clean with no clips or cracks. It does have pit marks from firing and some Staffordshire factory soot. We feel this adds to the historical charm, and was done in the manufacturing process, see photos.

Samuel Alcock 1799–1848 was one of the leading Staffordshire pottery manufacturers. He operated as Samuel Alcock & Co in Burslem, Staffordshire from the Georgian to Victorian eras, 1828 to 1859.

The beautiful graphic mark on the reverse reads:
Stone Ware
SA & Co

This is a great Victorian era piece. I have owned many early platters, this is beautiful, unusual and I have not seen another, nor can I find it in any web searches. Great design and great transferware from a master. It is one of my all time favourites.
