A beautiful English creamware plate decorated with violet swags with green trim along the rim of the plate and the edges of the swags. Aside from being of unusual structure, the violet color is rare, and the presence of a second color extremely rare.
This type ware is often mistakenly referred to as Leeds and featheredge. In reality, many factories other than Leeds made items of this nature, and the type edge here is more properly called a molded edge.
The condition of the plate is excellent, with no chips, cracks, staining, or restoration. The painting is also in fine fettle, with only a few tiny scattered losses at high points or edges, probably occurring during manufacturing. The diameter is 9 1/2".
