|In excellent condition, this pair of polychromed Dutch Delft plates are painted in the peacock pattern (sometimes called Warbonnet), in fine detail, and are nearly identical, with very slight variation in design. They measure 9 1/8" in diameter, and both are marked on the back with what appears to be a mark of the De Clauw factory. No chips, cracks or restoration, with a slight glaze flake at the bottom of one plate (visible in photo #2), and the loss of plate hanger on one plate, visible in photo #3. The color is rich and deep, painted over a slightly grayish slip, over a creamy pottery base, with nice dimpling in the glaze, as is expected in wares of this period. A lovely pair, perfectly matched, they are nice examples of early tin-glazed European wares.|
