James Kent 'Hydrangea' Pattern Chintz Oblong/Octagon 10" Serving Dish. Made by James Kent Ltd., of Longton Staffordshire England, one of the most sought after manufacturers of English chintz-decorated pottery. Constructed from robust earthenware pottery but has a delicate design that consists of hydrangea flower blossoms in blue, pink and purple, accented with a gold rim. Both end sides have embossed handles used to facilitate carrying.
The backstamp on the bottom for James Kent Ltd denotes authentic vintage pedigree, confidently suggesting this piece was made somewhere between 1930s-1950s.
Condition: In good condition, but there is slight crazing in the back of the dish. A rare size indeed, this dish measures 10" by 5⅜".
