Wedgwood Ivanhoe Series, Polychrome Plate – Rebecca repelling the Templar. This Aesthetic Movement transferware plate reflects a scene from Sir Walter Scott's IVANHOE novel. Innovative printing processes and the ability to use inks in brilliant colors were introduced in the early 20th Century. Although the original designs by Thomas Allen were introduced in 1881, Wedgwood continued to use the border cartouches of rabbits, geese, ducks, turkeys and other animals in a number of designs. Thomas Allen was the art director of the Etruria pottery which produced leading edge designs of the period. This plate benefited from the innovations and was probably produced in the 1920s. The plate is impressed WEDGWOOD in the clay, and the printed marks include IVANHOE, ETRURIA and ENGLAND plus a pattern number, A4510. The plate was probably made in the 1890s. The plate is 10.25” in diameter. The condition is excellent, with no chips, cracks or abrasions with modest normal age crazing.
