dish (attributed to John Simpson), ceramic, English, XVIIIc cat. card dims diam 11-1/4'

Charger, c. 1715

This charger is decorated in slip, or clay that is mixed with water to a liquid consistency. To create the marbled decoration, the multi-colored slip was carefully applied in lines and then swirled, probaby with the use of a comb. Staffordshire potters like John Simpson excelled at slipware decoration during the late 17th and early 18th centuries.
