Mason's American Marine Purple ~ HUGE 15 INCH Round Platter, Transferware, Cabinet Plate, Platter


An exquisite late 19th Century Staffordshire Earthenware Platter Plate Charger with the “American Marine” Transfer pattern produced by GL Ashworth & Bros. c1861-1890. The Ashworth Factory manufactured earthenware and ironstone at Hanley from 1861 to 1968 then after being renamed to Mason’s Ironstone China Ltd.

The plate is in a beautiful Purple color that features a four cartouche rim with a rope border. Within each cartouche there are pictures of sailing ships and steamships on the water. The center medallion design consists of a large sailing ship in a harbour with smaller boats in the foreground and a lighthouse in the background. The plate has crisp clear detailed transfer decorations. This plate design was discontinued in 1890. A plate like this one, in Black can be found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. These were made in Red, Blue, Black and Purple.
