“Hamburg, View of the Altonaer Thor” Possibly Wm.Smith & Co., Stockton c.1850 £58.00

An interesting plate with moulded and enamelled decortation. The red printed central transfer shows a view of the Altonaer Thor, Hamburg.

An interesting article relating to this particular print and the 1848 Revolution can be seen here (In German):

This plate was made specifically for the German export market. Many wares were produced for the export market to the Low Countries, Denmark, Baltic, Germany. There was a great deal of trade from many of the north eastern potteries of Sunderland, Tyneside and the Middlesborough, Stockton potteries.

This plate is unmarked, but I would suggest a manufacture by William Smith & Co, Stockton.

Interestingly, the moulded decoration is identical to another plate I have see: http://www.sharpantiques.com/2014/09/30/cottage-lustre-childs-plate-c-1850-23-00/

The source print for the transfer  was published in 1846.

The plate is in perfect condition.

Diameter: 7½ inches (19 cms)
