Minton New Stone meat platter,
20.5" x 17", c1850


This lovely antique English meat platter is a wonderful display piece.  Although called "New Stone", the platter is essentially an earthenware body.  The "Clematis" pattern mark is complemented by a Design Registration Mark for 25 April 1850.  There's an impressed "New Stone" mark, and an impressed registration mark for 12 October 1849, together with other impressed marks including a Minton potter's mark for 1850.  It's excellent, with lovely subtle decoration in green and red.  Two small chips on the lower rim, and some rubbing of the red enamel around the rim - as you might expect.  An imposing display piece.

On the base, there's a little wonderland of impressed marks!  Most prominently, there's a Shape Registration Mark for 12 October 1849.  Below, there's "BB", which means "Best Body".  Then there's the "New Stone" mark.  Below that, there's a potter's date mark for April 1850.   We've had to adjust the contrast of this photo to show the impressed marks, which is why the background looks so dark.

Also on the base, there's this painted number "9431".
