I’m afraid I know nothing about this beautiful ceramic Old Foley tray from James Kent Ltd, but I know what I like, and I absolutely love this piece! The turquoise glaze is incredibly beautiful as is the floral decoration, which almost has a Japanese slant to it. The scalloped handles are also quite something, and then you have the condition of the piece, which is near perfect (with the exception of one or two manufacturing defects). A truly beautiful piece of English pottery that’s crying out to be used – just imagine how great a selection of coloured macaroons would look on this dish (although macaroons don’t come cheap – they’d probably cost what the dish costs!).
Dimensions: 37cm long x 17cm wide
