A pearlware dish with arcaded (pierced edge) rim and basket moulded shoulder. The centre is blue under-glaze transfer printed with the ‘Eastern Street Scene’ design. The arcaded rim is blue painted. No foot ring. Three small trivet / spur scars in triangle formation in plate well.

This print is attributed to John and Richard Riley, Burslem, Staffordshire, whose business flourished 1802-1828. According to Coysh & Henrywood, ‘The Dictionary of Blue White Pottery 1780-1880 Vol.I’ (2001), p.121, the scene is “a composite of two prints by T. and W. Daniell from their ‘Oriental Scenery’ (Part I + II).” “The tree on the left is from ‘View on the Chitpore Road, Calcutta’ (Part II, 2)”.
