Description: "An English Delftware tin-glazed charger attributed to the Abigail Griffith London Lambeth pothouse. Great decorative blue and white delftware - boldly painted in strong inky black-blue with a powerful and dramatic landscape with chinoiserie buildings, hollow rocks and dominating weeping tree. The well of this large dish has a typical border of diaper pattern, while the brown edged rim is edged with graphic panel border of stylised mons and diaper. A rare identified example of an eighteenth century English delft pottery charger for the antiques enthusiastic." Antiques Expert Hamilton Bear
References: Identification and attribution of English Delft or tin-glazed earthenware, to specific areas and maker, is always difficult. Noteworthy therefore to find a surviving large example with comparative authoritative reference examples in the Victoria and Albert Museum collection. An Abigail Griffith Lambeth small blue and white bowl, with the same pattern, is illustrated in the published V&A collection catalogue: Michael Archer, Delftware The Tin-glazed Earthenware of the British Isles (London: The Stationary Office, 1997) Catalogue reference F 46; plate 206 illustrates the same pattern on a polychrome bowl.
Marks: none.
Dimensions:  width 336 mm max. approximately 13 1/4 inches.
Condition: A good attractive reference example. Tin glazed earthenware is soft and brittle so that edge chips are readily accepted and other damage is often found. This piece has glued repairs from a previous break - most clearly visible to the back of the charger. It is sound and displays well showing off the wonderful hand painted design to great effect as illustrated.
