Made in England by Job Ridgway 1802-1808, this incredibly rare oval-shaped Drabware dish shows a hawk perched on a log.                                                                                         The image is crisp. According to the online Ridgway pattern book, this is Ridgway pattern 235, which is part of “Birds from Bewick.”
“This black & iron-red decoration is the same as that on Ridgway bone china Patterns 317 and 500″.
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 monochromatic gray.
The use of the two colors printed on the warm drabware is eye-catching.
The brilliant gilding around the border and the edge add to the dish’s beauty.
The underside of the dish has pattern number 235.
Dimensions: 10″ x 7″ x 1.75″ height.               Condition: Excellent                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Ref : Where it says ” Pattern 235   Birds from Bewick.
