9" Diameter. Closely emulating Chinese technique including the unglazed foot. In contrast, the decoration, of Chinese theme, a version of the "fence" motif embraced by Dr. Wall Worcester a decade later, has a clearly English country flair. The proportions, as well, more like ironstone than soft paste. Thick bubbled salt glaze, a technique borrowed from an established English industry. The edge lightly chipped in its useful life and with short hair line crack, all well soiled from use. Reverse with two old brown inked labels dating it to 1765 and descended in the Reade family who clearly valued it and its place in their heritage. Large early example of English export porcelain and a relic of the Colonial period in America.
