Meat Dish or Platter c1800 Maker: Minton  Pattern:Hermit
Meat Dish or Platter c1800
An early example of a popular chinoiserie design usually associated with Davenport and Minton, although other makers made it. Also known as Chinoserie Bridgeless and Man in Doorway. This platter is a convenient decorative size and in beautiful condition, with some crazing to the glaze on the back and just a few signs to the face, otherwise bright and clean. No makers mark, but the quality of the potting and the glaze makes attribution safe. It is especially lightly potted.
Dimensions: 37 cm x 29 cm / 14.5 ins x 11.5 ins

Meat Dish or Platter with tree and well c1815 Maker: Minton  Pattern:Hermit
Meat Dish or Platter with tree and well c1815
This is an early example of this attractive chinoiserie pattern, which is derived from an original design on Chinese porcelain. Better known as Chinoiserie Bridgeless and sometimes called Man in Doorway, it was designated Hermit by Minton. We have attributed this platter to Minton on the basis of the details of the design and the presence of a tiny blue printed crown symbol on the back, which is recorded as a potter's mark on Minton wares in this design. Backstamp: Tiny blue printed crown. Crazed with some light staining here and there, but the glaze is still pearly bright and shines almost like new. Overall excellent condition.
Dimensions: 52 x 41.5 cm / 20.5 x 16.25 ins

Covered Vegetable Dish c1805 Maker: Minton  Pattern:Hermit
Covered Vegetable Dish c1805
A wonderful dish with cover which has an elegant scroll finial. This pattern was made by various potters, usually named Bridgeless Chinoiserie, although this piece is attributed to Minton, based on various details in the design, the style of moulded finial and the blue printed worker's mark. All are identifiable as Minton. Their name for the pattern was Hermit. No maker's backstamp, except both base and cover have a small blue printed crown, as a worker's mark. The glaze is lightly crazed, although still gleams like new. The finial has some wear on the front and a small area is rubbed through to the clay. On the rim of the base a tiny flake of glaze is missing. A few other minor manufacturing blemishes. Overall this is in lovely condition and a quality piece.
Dimensions: Base 23 cm across / Base 9 ins across
