Description

Being offered is a matching pair (2) of Gaudy Welsh plates in " AS IS" condition. There is edge damage, small chips and flakes, to both of these plates. (Please see photos) These large dinner plates are in the rare "Helter Skelter" pattern. Each of the plates measures 10 1/4" across. These are antique plates made around the year 1830, probably in England. The two plates are marked on the back with a hand painted crown design and the pattern number "124" under the crown. I do not have a definite answer on which pottery used this mark - it could possibly be Masons or Ridgway.

Wikipedia defines Helter Skelter as being "a funfair or amusement park ride with a slide built in a spiral around a high tower". This design is clearly evident on these antique Gaudy Welsh plates, the tower painted in a Chinese orange-red and the slide painted in a deep cobalt blue with gilt highlights. These antique pottery plates have been first printed with a red transfer print and then overpainted with red and blue highlights in a profusion of floral designs.

Both of these British collectible plates have damage to the scalloped edge. The damage consists of small chips and flakes and can be seen in the photos where it is pointed out by the paper arrows. There are no cracks or repairs.

I have 6 of these plates in all, 4 of which have no damage. I am listing this pair seperately at a lower price because of this damage.
