Black Pottery Platters

Donated By

Diana Dickstein


The Platters are of unknown origin. They are believed to be “Thumbprint” Work, which means that the original clay was shaped and then indented with thumb prints on the rims by the artist. These are foxhunting scenes, signed, artist unknown, and thought to be about 100 years old. They are cleverly mounted on Plexiglass panels for wall hanging purposes.

The donor stated that they were a gift from a friend who was an antique dealer member of the Wedgewood Society. He knew we were both Foxhunters and collectors of hunt prints.
