A large and rare Bursley Ware charger
Probably designed by John Butler. Early 20th century.
This highly decorative charger is hand painted with yellow, pink and orange blossoms amongst dark blue foliage on an intermediate blue ground. Marked to the rear 'Bursley Ware England 1697' which is probably the pattern number.
This is an extremely rare piece. Another 30cm version of this plate was sold by Christies in 2000 for in excess of $1,700.
No chips, cracks or restoration. There are some minor production flaws as highlighted in the images. which is not unusual in an item of this size, and a few small nibbles to the black paint on one edge.
