A pair of creamware pierced plates, thinly potted and with ribbed recess and hand pierced border. Possibly from the factory of James & Charles Whitehead. In the pattern book published 1798 by the Whitehead brothers, two versions of this pattern are depicted side by side: one with a beaded edge, the other a ”plain” version like these two. Ten plates with the beaded edge are presented in another Global Ceramics listing. NB: this pattern appears to have been popular and was produced by more than one factory at the time. Diameter "8 ½ / 21.3 cm. Condition: a nick to the under side of the rim of one plate.
