Antique rectangular white ironstone scale plate - John White & Son Auchtermuchty
A rare antique ironstone scale plate, decorated with a striking under-glaze black transfer for John White & Son, Auchtermuchty - a Scottish firm who have been making precision weighing machines since 1715 and are still in operation today. Produced to sit on a Victorian grocers balance scales, it would be perfect as a cheese platter or chopping board.
Glaze crazing and usage wear marks commensurate with age, but no damage otherwise.
