Cambrian Pottery Pagoda and Palms Plate c1825

Imperial: 9.5 ins
Metric: 24 cm

Also sometimes known as Chinese Washerwomen or Coffee Pot in the Window. There are two versions, this one with a stunted palm tree and another where the palm is far more exuberant. It is usually attributed to Dillwyn of the Cambrian Pottery, Swansea, Wales and may have been the inspiration for Ye Olde Dillwyn Willow, introduced by Burgess & Leigh of Burslem in 1924 and now usually known as Burleigh Willow. The Burleigh Willow has similarities to this design, but there are significant differences, where the Burleigh engraver has introduced some of the key elements of traditional Willow pattern. No maker's backstamp, but blue printed dot on fall of plate. Light crazing with some wear to the outer rim resulting in a little loss of glaze. Overall a lovely plate.
