Credit Line

Historic Odessa Foundation, anonymous gift

Accession Number



The anonymous donor purchased the plate and related objects from Heather Higgins Antiques, Winnetka, Illinois.


Pink lusterware was among the most popular Staffordshire ceramics made for local consumption and export to the United States. The object form, cast in a mold, was brightly painted, in this instance in shades of pink achieved by firing a metallic oxide glaze of gold.  In addition to striping, this plate has a stylized vine around the pink band at the rim.  Other objects—some from the same service and others from similar services—include a creamer, sugar, slop bowl, and cups and saucers with and without handles.  This plate is nearly identical to another, accession no. 2023.9.
