Edwardian Antique Large White Ironstone Avery Scale Plate, Ideal Cheeseboard
A great Edwardian white ironstone scale plate made around 1910. In good condition, these ceramic platters look fabulous simply on display and they also make excellent cheese plates.
This white ironstone scale plate has a striking under glaze black transfer print featuring the Avery logo. Avery was, and still is, a renowned scale manufacturer. The print is still exceptionally clear and makes a very interesting feature.
The size and weight of this scale plate is particularly impressive, measuring 30.5cm in width and 1.5cm tall, and weighing 2kg. The ironstone makes it ideal for use as a cheese board or for serving up food on as a platter or ironstone slab, keeping the food at a cool and constant temperature.
The plate is in excellent condition. There are no dents, cracks or surface crazing and is clean on both sides. There are some small areas of age spots on the front and back and some light surface scratches. There are also some minor ridges across the surface of the plate from the firing process, resulting in different shades of colour across the surface. This is most notable on the top left hand side of the plate above the logo.
