Decorated in blue and black oxide glazes, this piece is a superb example of the early work produced by the Troika pottery dating c1963 to 1967. Interstingly I noticed that all over the geometric pattern are small impressed words in a type font. Have a look at the picture below, you can just make out words such as Pottery, Cornwall and England!
These plates are decorated with an abstract flower-head and leaf design and this particular example is coloured in a blue glaze. Unlike normal round plates these plates are square in shape with rounded corners and measure approximately 7″ square.
This early Troika plate is marked on the back with the early Troika pottery moulded mark -Troika St Ives along with the impressed Trident mark – altogether making it a very nice collectible piece.
