Information

A rare brown ware plate transfer printed in yellow slip* with the very decorative 'Paisley' pattern. Lovely contrasting colours on a pretty shape. In excellent condition - no chips, cracks or restoration and showing little sign of wear. Impressed SCOTT BROTHERS (c1841-1860). Diameter 23.75cm (9.4in)

*Thomas Pearson Scott was said to have invented the technique of using yellow slip instead of ink to apply the transfers. He carried out the process in secret in a separate room and when he died in 1864, production of this type of ware ceased.

Examples of the 'Paisley' pattern can be seen in the Sunderland Museum collection and are illustrated in 'Sunderland Pottery' by John C. Baker page 19, plate V.
