Set of five St. Johns PQ white ironstone dinner plates. A set with a similar pattern to these plates is featured in The Canadiana Connection, 19th Century Pottery Collection of the Winnipeg Gallery Focus Two publication ©1998. Plates like these were intended as functional wares for domestic use. They were made by the St. Johns Stone Chinaware Co. in Quebec and are marked with the company’s stamp (1873-1893). They are fine examples of everyday use pottery produced by one of Canada’s best known ironstone potters.
Dinner size: 9 3/4″ in diameter (24.7 cm)
There are three stilt marks on three of the plates which held them in place in the kiln during the manufacturing process. This is sometimes found on early pottery at this time and is not considered damage but is noted. There are some inconsistencies in the glaze and minor crazing consistent with age and use. There are no chips, cracks or repairs. In overall good condition. Please refer to photos for details. Sold as a set of five plates.
