Wedgwood Aesthetic Movement Staffordshire Well and Tree Platter, 'Chrysanthemum'

$375Asking Price


An oversized Aesthetic Movement well and tree platter, Wedgwood, Burslem, Staffordshire, England, circa 1886. A well-and-tree platter has a depressed design of a trunk and branches through which meat juices flow into a large depression at one end. The pattern, ‘Chrysanthemum,’ is transfer printed in blue on a cream earthenware body and shows three different images of chrysanthemums, an image of a small branch with berries, and a spray of branching pine cones. The platter has two raised feet on the verso, slightly angling it towards a deep juice well. The front shows the depressed ‘tree’ that drains to the well. Impressed Wedgwood, the date code for 1886 and the printed pattern name. A scarce piece in excellent antique condition, with light age wear.
