This is a rare ironstone pottery Sweetmeat Dish or Serving Plate, made by the Mason's factory at Lane Delph, Staffordshire, England and beautifully decorated in the Rose & Apple pattern commonly known as the School House pattern, fully stamped and dating to the early 19th Century, circa 1818.


The dish is well potted as a shell dish with C scroll moulded edges and would probably have been part of a Desert Service originally. The hand painted design is one of Mason's very decorative Chinoiserie patterns called the Rose & Apple pattern, often known as the School House pattern, which tends to be a rarer pattern. This pattern is illustrated on Page 145 of a Guide to Mason's Patent Ironstone Patterns, circa 1813-1848, produced by The Mason's Collectors Club. The Dish has Mason's impressed circular mark stating; " Patent Ironstone China", indicating a very early date of circa 1813 to 1822.


Overall a very decorative early Mason's Ironstone Dish in a rare shape in this superb pattern.
