Minton English Scenery Dinner Plate c.1825



A Minton blue and white transfer printed dinner plate from the English Scenery series. Despite the title of the pattern, the building in this view appears to be based on the a view of a windmill at Charenton near Paris, France. The pattern was introduced c.1825, about the same time Minton moved from their pearlware body to their Semi-China body. The plate has the Minton Semi-China mark used c.1825-30.

The plate is 9.9 inches (25.2cm) wide and weighs 450g.

The plate is in very good condition. There is no damage or restoration. There are a few small bits of firing debris in the glaze in the well of the plate - the most noticeable is just by the boat. There is a small area of roughness on the very rim of the plate between 7 and 8 o'clock, illustrated in the last image. The face of the plate is clean and bright, with just a few utensil marks.
