Meat Dish or Platter Windsor Castle c1825 Maker: Adams  Pattern:Bluebell Border Series
Meat Dish or Platter Windsor Castle c1825
William Adams of Stoke active 1804 to 1829 made the Bluebell Border Series, which consists of some 19 different named scenes. This is Windsor Castle, Berkshire and is printed in a luscious deep blue. James & Ralph Clews produced a similar series, with the same border, but generally different views. For the botanists the flowers in the border that give the series its name look more like snakeshead fritillaries, rather than bluebells. Backstamp: impressed Adams Warranted Staffordshire with eagle and blue printed floral cartouche containing Windsor Castle, Berkshire. Provenance: The personal collection of Gresham Copeland, passing by descent to his son Robert Copeland. Collection identification label on back AGC E12. The glaze is finely crazed and has taken up just a touch of light staining in places, but only really noticeable on the back. The glaze is a bit "gritty" in places, but this is from manufacture. Overall a dramatic platter in excellent condition.

Meat Dish or Platter c1815 Maker: Adams  Pattern:Lions
Meat Dish or Platter c1815
This small platter or stand for a sauce tureen was made by Adams at Greengates, Tunstall and the design is based on a print "Felix Leo - Lion, Lioness and Young" engraved by J Scott after an original by S Edwards, published in 1807. It was republished in Vol. V of The Cyclopedia of Arts Science and Literature published in 1820. A rare and desirable design, which is strongly collected today. This small platter has some rubbing to the outer and inner rims and there is a hairline crack running in from the rim for 4.25ins from 7 o'clock. This has taken up a little light staining, which might respond to cleaning and restoration. There is no backstamp, but definitely Adams.

Meat Dish or Platter with tree and well c1815 Maker: Adams  Pattern:Scene After Claude Lorraine
Meat Dish or Platter with tree and well c1815
This design goes under various names: Claude Lorraine, Lorraine, After Claude Lorraine, Scene after Claude Lorraine and sometimes Blue Claude. The maker was Benjamin Adams, one of the famous and numerous Adams family of potters, and he operated Greengates Pottery at Tunstall, Staffordshire from c1809 to 1820. The design is derived from the paintings of Claude Lorraine, who although born in Nancy, spent most of his life in Italy, where he studied and established a reputation as a landscape painter. Many of his paintings have similar features: groups of trees, a ruin or bridge, all backed by mountains and rivers. Port scenes were another favourite, painted in the same style. His work inspired patterns produced by Riley, Leeds, Wedgwood and at least one unknown maker, in addition to Adams. It is believed that Adams commissioned William Brookes, a noted freelance engraver to produce his Lorraine design. Brookes was working from c1800 to 1838, first at Tunstall and later at Burslem. He is known to have worked for Davenport and Wedgwood, as well as Adams. Certainly the engraving of Lorraine is of the finest quality. Benjamin Adams' production seems to have been consistently of a very high quality, with both the potting and printing displaying great skill and with the subtle use of shades of blue to create a calm, classical look to his wares. A full range of dinnerware, including dessert services, was produced in this design. Plates may be found relatively often, but platters and the shapes, such as tureens, vegetable dishes and comports are now rare. This platter stands on two stubby feet and rests on the dip of the gravy well. The glaze has crazed and has light associated staining. There are some signs of use, but no damage and overall it is in good condition, with bright glaze. No maker's backstamp. Looks quite beautiful on display.
