A blue under-glaze transfer printed pearlware dish. The clear glaze has a blue tint where it pools. The pattern is called "Eastern Street Scene", which is a composite of two source prints by T. and W. Daniell in "Oriental Scenery" (Parts I & II). The large tree on the left is from the print "The Sacred Tree of the Hindoos at Gyah, Bahar". The buildings are from the print "View on the Chitpore Road, Calcutta". These Indian scenes were used by the pottery firm 'John & Richard Riley' who flourished from around 1802 to 1828 in Burslem, Staffordshire. The pattern was also used by Samuel Alcock who took over the Riley pottery in 1829. (See "The Dictionary of Blue & White Printed Pottery 1780-1880", Vol. I, pages 121 + 302, which was the source of most information above).

There is an impressed mark 'G' in the base and a small printed 'o'. The 'G' mark is not a listed mark for Riley's or Alcock's, yet the pattern is not known to have been used by any other potters. An interesting dish in perfect condition.
