Enquire About This Item

An early 20thC porcelain developers tray, with a pronounced pouring lip in one corner and decorated on the front edge with a wonderful black transfer for 'British Manufacture Hanoware', an early trademark which features the Rose, Thistle and Clover of the British Isles.

Used in darkrooms for photo development, the underside has a black scrolling script transfer instructing the user on how to use it as a rocking tray by placing a lead pencil in the molded grooves on the foot. The foot also has an embossed '9 x 7' in the middle of one edge, denoting the size of the photo plate that could be developed inside.  

Top edge/Rim:

28cm (11") x 21.6cm (8-1/2")

Foot:

26cm (10-1/4") x 20.3cm (8)

Height:

5.7cm (2-1/4")

 

In very good original condition with signs of use and wear commensurate with age, the foot and underside has some staining, scratching and rubbing where it has been extensively used and there are small firing marks and areas of staining across the piece. The inside of the tray has three ink stain spots under the glaze where small firing fault lines are, particularly in the back corner, but these do not detract and it displays very well, or would still be perfectly usable for it's original application.
