A Pair Of Tin Glazed Earthenware Lambeth Delft Bird Plates

The central panel decorations are identical in design but seem to be from two differing hands, both with a scene of a green and red bird, possibly a parrot, resting on a blue reed amongst a spray of iron red and yellow flowers, blue and green leaves and a manganese seed pod, all emanating from a patch of yellow and red dotted earth. Directly above both birds and perhaps the object of their affections is an insect with thin red antenna and pale green wings

Circa 1750

22.25 cm & 22.75 cm in diameter

One plate with two rim chips the other with smaller rim chips and glaze flakes

Probably made by William Griffith at the Lambeth High Street Pottery

An identical plate at the Victoria and Albert Museum has been attributed on the grounds of its incised decoration to the factory at Lambeth High Street, where related fragments were found
