Rare Black FitzHugh 6″ Plate Sold
One of the rarer colors in the FitzHugh palette, this very finely hand-painted 6″ plate is rendered all in black and is almost certainly from a special order service as it bears a central monogram, inscribed ASC. The grisaille draftsmanship of the peony and ‘antique objects’ design virtually resembles a pen and ink drawing. With only a short line to the reverse rim sealed, this charming piece is in otherwise great condition – a great addition to any FitzHugh collection. Early 19th century.
