The brushwork is intentionally prominent. The effect is splendid! As is the case with the lions on this plaque, Prattware has raised decoration colored with underglaze oxides.

Antique Drabware Dish Decorated w/ a Bird a Hawk from a Series of Minton Dishes$280.00
This striking oval-shaped Drabware dish shows a hawk perched on a log. The image is crisp. The hawk is printed in great detail in simple monochrome gray; we get a feeling for this bird’s ferocity. The background is printed in monochrome orange, which has a softer feel than the monochromatic gray. Made in England circa 1810, the brilliant Regency period gilding around the border and the edge adds to the dish’s beauty. The underside of the dish has the pattern number 235.
