Antique Blue & White Wedgewood Platter

What began as an ambitious dream of Josiah Wedgwood in 1759, would become one of Britain's most iconic names in fine china.  From the very beginning, Wedgwood did things right.  In 1765 - just 6 years after they began production of their creamware china, they were given permission by Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III, to call their product "Queen's Ware".  Wedgwood could scarcely keep up with the demand as their beautiful china became extremely popular across all of Europe and soon, around the globe.

From the Wedgwood studios in England, we were thrilled to discover this exquisite rectangular platter in the sumptuously decorated Hague pattern. First introduced in 1876 in the timelessly-beloved blue and white palette, this pattern takes its design cues not from the oft-copied blue and white Chinese Export pieces, but from the iconic blue and white wares that put Delft, Holland on the pottery map.  

A classic harbor scene takes centerstage on this exceptional platter: a man and woman along with a small girl all dressed in traditional Dutch clothing stand at the water's edge, while sailboats and a windmill on a small island are seen in the distance. The borders of the platter are decorated with lush scrolling flourishes punctuated with vignettes of sailing ships at sea and windmills in bucolic settings. 

With molded and embossed side handles and timelessly charming decoration, this enchanting platter promises to not only set a pretty table but be equally captivating on display.


Strictly limited quantities (at listing, a total of 2 platters are available) and subject to prior sale. In very good antique condition with light overall crazing as shown in the alternate images. 17.5" x 7.5"
