Beswick Ware vintage runner bean leaf dish - green with handpainted flowers (SOLD)
A lovely original vintage Beswick Ware pottery runner bean leaf-shaped dish, in graduated green glaze (off-white to the central underside) with handpainted deep red flower decoration. The base bears a gilt "Beswick / Ware. / MADE IN / ENGLAND." script mark together with the impressed stamp "BESWICK . ENGLAND / 221" - which denotes a piece manufactured between 1954 and 1971 - and the handpainted code number "8306 / 61". Please note that there are various imperfections / irregularities dating from manufacture, including several small lumps and bumps, tiny spots and other marks in the glaze, a small unglazed area to the edge of the leaf tip, and some glazed-over chips to the foot.
Although this genuine vintage piece shows various signs of age including crazing (see condition description below) - and, due to its age and condition, we do not recommend that it be used for food - it remains nicely displayable, and would make a pleasing ornamental addition to a vintage-inspired or cottage-style interior.
