Shell Edged Pearlware Plate

(1820 - 1830)

Two base, body and rim sherds from a finely embossed shell-edged plate. The rim has blue shell edge decoration with an embossed floral or botanical pattern. The bottom of the base has a small impressed flower which is likely a decorator's mark. The edge of the footring has some heavy wear from use and the face of the plate has some knife marks.
