Product description

Kaolin Ware (Thomas Dimmock & Co.) "Bamboo" small antique pottery dinner plates x 2
 
A pair of genuine 19th century antique Kaolin Ware "Bamboo" small dinner plates, in white glaze with a bluish tinge with dark blue transfer and handpainted colour decoration, produced by the firm of Thomas Dimmock (Jnr) & Co, who were in business in Hanley (Shelton) from 1828-59. Both plates bear the dark blue printed stamp "BAMBOO / KAOLIN WARE / D" to the underside, together with the painted code "1/330".
 
One of the plates has a large chip to the upper edge, and both show other assorted signs of age (see condition description below), together with various manufacturing imperfections in the glaze including several dark blue spots and tiny specks. Owing to their condition - and to the fact that they are unlikely to conform to present-day safety standards - please note that these are offered for sale as collectable or display pieces only, and not for food use. However, they remain nicely displayable, and would make lovely decorative accessories for an early Victorian style interior. (We also have for sale a single large dinner plate in the same pattern - please see link in "Related Products" below.)
