Antique Davenport Chalcedony Staffordshire China Rust Iron Red Transferware Supper Set Dish Bisham Abbey Pastoral Fishing Scene
Supper Set Segment
For consideration is this very rare dish from an antique Supper Set. It has a rusty orange colored stoneware body with a rust , iron red color transfer print. The scene is lovely, depicting two fishermen with nets and poles near a stream and Bisham Abbey in the background. There is a black trim around the outer rim.
Measures: 10 5/8" from one corner to the opposite corner (widest point) x 7 3/4" x 1 3/4" deep
Condition: Tiny nick or two around the rim. There are two of these (sold individually) and each one has a chip or two on the bottom foot rim. This does not show when displayed or from the front / top, nor does it affect the way it sits level on a table. Please also note that only one dish has the impressed Davenport anchor mark ( also shown in last photo) and the other dish does not.
John Davenport, born in 1765 and began his potting career in 1785 as a workman in the pottery. He later partnered with Thomas Wolfe of Stoke and then acquired his own pottery at Longport in 1794 and manufactured earthenware. The name was changed to William Davenport and Company. William died in 1869, and his two sons took over the direction of the business, which remained in the family until 1887.
