Fazackerly Delft Dish Hand Painted Liverpool Polychrome Mid 18th Century


This gorgeous Delft dish was hand painted in England in the mid-18th century, circa 1760. The style of decoration we call Fazackerly is probably the most beautiful in all English delftware. Starting about 1750 at Liverpool, the complete range of polychrome colors was used to decorate delftware like this. A spray of flowers decorates the center of our dish and stretches out onto the border. The exquisite colors have been carefully defined, including French blue, sage green, and lemon yellow, purple, with drawing in black. Fazackerly colors are high-temperature fired colors, which include cobalt blue, mixed green, manganese purple, and a clear yellow from antimony. With this limited range of colors, Fazackerly delftware creates a beautiful impression of luxurious enamel decoration.

Background of Fazackerly: Painted in dark and light purple, brilliant blue, green foxy red, and yellow, the name Fazackerly has been given to this type of Liverpool decoration since a mug painted in these colors and inscribed “t.F.1757” is said to have been made at the pot works at Shaw’s Brow and presented to Mr. Thomas Fazackerly by a Liverpool potter.
Fazackerly decorated plates have been found at Colonial Williamsburg.
