Large Salt Glazed Charger 18th Century Made in England circa 1765$860.00
Provenance: The Collection of Sir Samuel Hoare*
This large and exquisite salt-glazed charger was made in Staffordshire, England, in the 18th century circa 1765. The design is elegant and straightforward: the only decoration is the lobed and gadrooned edge. Press-molded, salt-glazed chargers, plates, dishes, and other service pieces filled the cupboards and dining rooms of middle and upper-class English and American homes from the mid-1740s until the end of the 18th century. The advent of this white stoneware dinnerware instigated a tabletop revolution.

Provenance: The Rouse Lench Collection
A pair of lions resting comfortably on a Prattware plaque. They probably just finished a big meal! Hand painted in three brown shades: their bodies are painted light brown, their manes, and tails a darker brown, and their muzzles an almost black, midnight brown. 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.
