A rare English delftware char dish, the rim decorated in polychrome with naive images of six fish.
Char dishes are rare in delftware and this is a fine example.
Char is a land locked salmon which in England is specific to the Lake District in the North.After the glacial waters of the last Ice Age receded, the arctic charr became land-locked in Windermere. They are still caught on the lake today.

Delftware char dishes are attributed to Liverpool but the recent discovery of a works in Lancaster suggests the latter maybe the manufacturer with the close proximity to the "Lakes".
