English Prattware  Pearlware Plaques of Jack on a Cruise & Lady

Two English Pearlware Plaques,

Jack on a Cruise & Lady,

Late 18th. Century.


A pair of relief molded plaques of Jack on a Cruise and a Lass.  They are decorated in typical underglaze pratt colours.

Jack the sailor looks admiringly at a passing lass carrying a brolley who is well attired with a large hat with ribbons and a hooped dress with an apron and skirt.

Prints of Jack on a cruise are often captioned " Avast there! Back your main topsail" a comment which Jack may have made to the passing beauty.

Both plaques were made with two pierced holes for hanging.  Jack has a red border and the Lass a blue one.  Condition is excellent.

Dimensions: Jack: 9 1/2 inches high x 4 inches wide x 1 inch in depth. Lass: 9 3/4 inches high x 4 1/2 inches wide x 1 inch high.
