Description
An antique Staffordshire pottery tortoiseshell Whieldon octagonal Plate with ribbed border. From the Elcombe Collection, item number 94. These plates are sometimes referred to as Wheildon or Whieldon type wares, the correct term is Tortoiseshell ware which has the same body as Creamware, but was decorated with metallic oxides. When the wares were fired the colours mixed and produced a streaky or mottled effect. These types of wares were produced by various manufacturers in the Staffordshire area and should not be referred to simply as Whieldon. The excavation of Whieldon's factory at Fenton uncovered several examples of this type of pottery which made it possible to attribute only a few wares of tortoiseshell to Whieldon - See Bergesen's British ceramics (1992) p.60 Please view our other items thanks
