Offered for sale is a stunning antique platter manufactured by Richard Bloor of England around 1820. Bloor Derby would later become the well known Royal Crown Derby. The platter is hand-painted, and it features a twisted rope style rim with hand-painted floral scenes and lavish gold gilt designs around the border. The overall condition of the platter is phenomenal for its age.It is very clean and there are no chips, cracks, or broken areas other than three short hairlines observed from the back measuring 2", 5/8", and 5/8 and some tiny flakes to the tip of one pointed scallop. The painted details are excellent with minor wear and loss mostly to the gold gilt and the white earthenware is still very white. The glaze is glossy with fine consistent crazing and there is no rubbing or glaze loss that I see. The surface has standard light scratches and signs of use.
