Set of 11 Early Spode Ironstone Imari Dessert Dishes Made circa 1815$1,650.00
A set of 11 Imari style ironstone dessert dishes, made by Spode circa 1815.
Josiah Spode II began producing stone china in 1813 as an alternative to porcelain. Stone china, also known as ironstone due to its hard and durable fabric, became famous for its porcelain-like greyish blue glaze and glassy surface. So popular was this new medium that Queen Charlotte purchased her own stone china service from Spode’s Portugal Street showroom. These dessert dishes are early examples of Spode Stone China; in 1822 the company introduced an improved body marketed as “New Stone,” and thereafter items were branded as such.
Dishes are marked with pattern number 2283 in iron red and feature the printed Spode Stone China mark in underglaze blue.
Dimensions: 8 in. Dm x 1/2 in. H (20.3 cm Dm x 1.4 cm H)
Condition: Excellent overall. Light wear to some enamels and gilding on dishes commensurate with age and use. The plates with the least and most amounts of wear are pictured.
Set 11 Large Masons Ironstone Dinner Plates Circa 1915$4,300.00
The color is fabulous.
This excellent set of eleven Mason’s Ironstone plates is decorated in rich rust color with overall black detailing resembling sharkskin. This attractive set dates to circa 1915. On the reverse is a transfer printed crown and banner in black with the pattern number ‘C.1753’ in iron-red, and the impressed “2XG” and “ENGLAND,” which Masons began to stamp after 1891. The marks indicate Masons made the set circa 1915.
Dimensions: 10.5″ diameter. Price: $4,300
Condition: Good with crazing to the reverse of the dishes (see images #10 and #11). Crazing results from the initial firing process in 1915 when the glaze and the earthenware body under it expanded and contracted at different rates during the heating and cooling process.
