Large Salt Glazed Charger 18th Century Made in England circa 1765$760.00
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.
