Overglaze Enamel Painted Pearlware Plate Rim Sherd

(1775 - 1830)

One pearlware plate rim sherd with a broad band of blue underglaze painted decoration along the interior rim. The rim has a yellow overglaze enamel painted line with oval dots on top of the blue painted band, with a red overglaze line beneath it. Most of the red painted decoration has worn away. There is additional red overglaze enamel painting on the cavetto of the plate, although this decoration is also very worn and the pattern is unknown.
