This is a very early sponge ware platter. The platter is white with blue sponge decoration. This was most likely made in New England in the mid 19th century. There is some wear to it and 7 chips. The largest chip is 3/4″ x 3/8″. These early sponge ware pieces usually have a bit of damage due to age. A very decorative piece. The measurements are 14″ by 10″.
