This is a very good, early Serving Desert Dish or platter made by Mason's Ironstone in the gilded Basket Japan pattern, in the English, late Georgian period, circa 1813-1820.


This piece is well potted with shaped sides, formed as handles for carrying.


The Dish is well hand decorated in the distinctive "Basket Japan" pattern, which is one of Mason's well known chinoiserie patterns, using bold hand painted enamels of cobalt blue, green and burnt orange all in various shades and possibly over a light printed outline. This pattern is illustrated on Page 103 of "A Guide to Mason's Patent Ironstone Patterns, circa 1813-circa 1848" as published by The Mason's Collectors' Club.


This pieces is fully marked to the base with one of Mason's earliest recorded impressed marks stating " Masons Patent Ironstone China" in a single line, signifying a very early piece dating to within the first 5 years of Mason's Ironstone production which only started in 1813. It also has the free flowing hand painted style only seen on the early pieces.


Overall a very decorative and useful Georgian Serving Dish by the Mason's Ironstone factory.
