Platter, ca. 1872
This is a Platter. It was designed by Christopher Dresser and manufactured by Mintons. It is dated ca. 1872 and we acquired it in 2006. Its medium is glazed earthenware. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
In 1872 Dresser registered with Mintons a pattern of flying cranes in the form of a circle, presumably for a plate. This large platter likely derives from this pattern and is one of a number of pieces that Mintons produced featuring this popular Japanese imagery.
