McIntyre Farm - McIntyre Farm – Ceramics
These household ceramics represent some common dishes ranging from the mid to late-19th Century: a burnt fragment whose glazes have been destroyed (top right); refined white earthenware including blue edgeware; painted and stamped underglaze plates; and the ever-popular white ironstone, one sample bearing a copper-lustre rim (top middle).
Collection: McIntyre Farm
Object: Plate, Ceramic
Period: Late 19th Century
This refined white earthenware plate-rim fragment has a blue painted edge moulding. It likely represents a later evolution of the common blue feather-edge pattern of an earlier era. Wares of this basic appearance enjoyed a remarkable longevity throughout the 19th Century.
