The piece is well potted with an oval shape having a wavy edge with no foot. The side cavetto is embossed (kiln moulded) with a continuous floral leaf design. This platter is large and is Meat Plate size in proportions.
It is well hand painted in the recorded chinoiserie pattern called the: Fence, Rock and Tree pattern, showing a large golden flower by a well defined swastika latticed zig-zag fence, with a four section floral sprig border . The pattern is hand enamelled, over-glaze in bold colors of burnt orange, yellow, brown, blue, green, and pink over an under-glaze printed outline, with gold gilding to one side of the vase and part of the edge. This pattern is fully illustrated in Masons pattern book, page 91, published by The Masons Collectors' Club The piece is fully marked to the base with a Mason's single line impressed mark stating: Masons Patent ironstone China, which dates this piece to circa 1818.
