A Superb Small Antique Slipware Dish, Fremington, North Devon, England, Mid-19th C.
A rare and delightful floral dish, full of character, confidently and freely incised through the surface slip coat to create a contrasting pattern (Sgraffito), an artistic technique much used by the North Devon potters. Attributed to the Fishley’s of Fremington.
Good condition with typical minor surface wear and firing imperfections.
