FIRST PERIOD WORCESTER CRESS (STRAWBERRY) DISH & UNDERPLATE

England, c1775

 

 

 

   

 

 The shallow circular barbed and pierced dish and the matching underplate printed in underglaze blue with "The Pinecone" pattern,

centering an open peony between two pinecones and a pomegranate, each with an underglaze blue hatched crescent mark verso

 

Note :

Although these are today known as “cress dishes”, the term of the 18th century was “strawberry”, in accord with the Chinese export pierced berry dishes of the period, some of which were even painted with strawberries.  The piercing allowed the juices to drain from beneath the berries, which were often sprinkles with sugar.  The shape is akin to English creamware, and made both at Worcester and Caughley Manufactories.  The Worcester examples are mostly in the Pinecone pattern, with a few printed with scattered blue floral designs. 

None were made after 1780.

 

Condition : Excellent; without chips, breaks or repairs

 

The Bowl : 7.25” Diameter
The Underplate : 8.5" Diameter
