Pearlware plate

Pearlware plate
The rage for Chinese porcelain in the late 1700s was so great that European ceramic factories decorated plates and other items to look as if they came from China. This plate was made and decorated in England but painted with a Chinese-looking pagoda and landscape. The popularity and production of these plates are detailed in the video. Date approximated
