Royal Worcester ivy leaf dish shape 1978. Item 3321.
This very finely potted porcelain ivy leaf shaped dish (shape 1978) was made by Royal Worcester. It was hand painted and then, using the sgraffito method, the veins of the leaf were incised through the paint to give the dish a lifelike quality. First issued in 1898, these dishes came in four sizes, one of which had a central opening to be used as a photo frame. This one is 147 mm (5.75 inches) long and 127 mm (5 inches) wide. It is in very good condition, and carries the date mark for 1898.
