Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: Very nice pattern by a well known pottery from the Stoke-on-Trent area.
Condition: Dishes are in general good condition given they are almost 200 years old. They do have general crazing to the glaze and some minor soiling. All the dishes have small cracks, chips and loss of gold coloring. We have attempted to take photos of many of these issues but not all of them. The photos are representative of what you should expect to see in all the dishes. Be that as it may, the pieces are solid and intact and are great looking. Please view the photos carefully to appreciate the beauty and condition of these dishes. Because of the defects in the dishes, we are selling them "AS IS" at a low price.
In Closing: Just a very nice lot with bold and fresh colors in great condition after being around for almost 200 years. This would make a great addition to your collection of Staffordshire or Wedgwood pottery.
