Color Variation in British China Glaze Plates

Please note that on the middle shelf are three examples of William Greatbatch's China glaze production which can be tightly dated to the 1775-1782 period. This a period of innovation and experimentation with glaze formulae; each plate reflects significant glazing differences.

Above the Greatbatch examples are other China glaze examples that date to 1800 - 1820.

A selection of China glaze plates, dishes and a few punch bowls and jugs.
These range in date from circa 1775 to the 1820s.


  1. Fabulous collection, beautifully displayed with great illumination!

  2. Hi there, I'm looking for a guide to some of the rim patterning for china glaze vessels. I've seen the article in your 2001 volume. Do you know of any others? Do the patterns have names?
