PEARLWARE POTTERY FISHERMAN
AND CASTLE PATTERN TRANSFERWARE BLUE AND WHITE

rare English pearlware pottery blue and white transfer printed plate of
quality with distinctive indented edge. The design is a delight. Known
as the Fisherman and Castle pattern it successful combines elements of chinoiserie with European gothic elements to produce a fascinating
early transitional blue printed picture dating c.1800-1810. Unfortunately at

distinctive plate shape and impressed asterix cypher mark to the
reverse. A wonderful piece worthy of the best English pottery
collection and further research." Antiques Expert
