Plate (USA), 1886–1890
This is a plate. It was decorated by Francis Lycett and Sidney T. Callowhill and manufactured by New York Faience Manufacturing Company. It is dated 1886–1890 and we acquired it in 1939. Its medium is glazed and gilt porcelain. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
In the late 19th century the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn was home to at least a dozen major ceramics firms including the Faience Manufacturing Company. This plate exhibits two signatures of the firm’s production: raised gold paste decoration and a dark blue background. This piece’s octagonal form with a band along the rim and the attenuated floral decorations recall Japanese aesthetics.
