1840's F & R Pratt & Co Prattware Transferware Pearlware Plate-No 123
1840's Victorian F & R Pratt & Co Prattware Transferware Pearlware Plate-No. 123
High Roman Ruins
This beautiful pearlware transferware plate was made by the Staffordshire firm of F. & R. Pratt of Fenton, owned by Felix Edward Pratt 1813-1894. It is marked No. 123 and features an amazing transferware scene of high ruins over a river with cattle below.
The condition is beautiful. You will see a mark on back, which is not a chip in any way, is simply a light touch firing mark made in the manufacture. There are no chips, cracks or repairs and the piece is in beautiful condition, with a beautiful and clear No. 123 mark also.
A wonderful old piece, found in Devon. Please see another similar Pratt plate found with this one we have for sale here too. You can see the pooling of the faint blue cobalt blue glaze on back rim, which tells you it is early pearlware. See photos. It displays beautifully on a wall, with others too.
Size: 9 inches diameter
