SPONGE - SPATTERWARE PLATES
Sponge-Spatterware refers to 19th century pottery decorated with a stamped design of flowers or shapes. Part of the design may be hand painted or there may be bands of striped color that creates a rainbow effect. This was produced by the factories of early industrial-era of England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Belgium and France. In the U.S. it is called spatterware, in Europe it is called spongeware. There are four possible techniques: hand painting, spattering, dabbing, and stamping a pattern with a sponge. The most common colors were red, green, blue and yellow against a white or cream colored background. A common pattern is "Adams Rose". It was produced by all the famous potteries in Europe.
