I was at the St. Jacobs Antiques Market a couple weeks ago when I came across a booth that had 85% off of everything! Even though this piece had some scratches, it cost about $2.50 so I thought I’d pick it up just to have the fun of identifying the etch. It is marked so I knew it was a piece by Cambridge.
Turns out it is etch #747 – Brettone. It is a very large scale pattern. This piece appears to be an under plate for something as the middle has the ridges that woul seem to be for a bowl of some sort.
I wouldn’t call it pretty, but it is interesting.
Off on vacation to New Orleans and points around today. I know there are lots of antique shops in the ‘Big Easy’. Looking forward to the time in the US.
