Impressive Platter measures 18 3/4 " by 14 5/8 " at widest points. Weight is approximately 6 lbs 6 oz.
Backstamp reads " Auckland Stone Ware D " plus an impressed mark which may be a stylized letter D. Have spent quite some time trying to identify the maker and believe it to be Thomas Dimmock & Co who were in business from 1828 to 1859. The color is more of a green and white in spite of the way the photos may look.Took the pictures several times and they continue to look more blue than it actually is. Numerous utensil scratches from use. Some rough areas around the rim appear to be manufacturing flaws but no chips or cracks. Other minor manufacturing imperfections and paint overrun. Grand old platter has been around for 150 years plus. The item "ANTIQUE TRANSFERWARE TURKEY SERVING PLATTER T. DIMMOCK & SONS c1828-1859 LARGE" is in sale since Tuesday, September 25, 2018.
