Comb Bank(e) is at Sundridge near Sevenoaks in Kent. The house was built in the 1720s and since 1924 has been used as an independent girls school and more recently also as a wedding venue. British Views Series comprises some 14 different scenes and no piece has ever been found with a maker's backstamp, although the series has recently been attributed to Hicks and Meigh largely on the strength of commonality of shapes with other patterns known to be by Hicks and Meigh.
Blue printed backstamp with British Views on a fancy ribbon. Provenance the Otto Collection with label and item number 722.
This is a magnificent tree and well platter, however, at some time the top third parted company from the rest and a long hairline formed along the line of the well. It has been re-assembled and restored. It has been done well and from a distance all looks fine, but close-up it is obvious. The glaze is crazed and this has taken up some associated staining, mainly in the sky.
