A pair of original West Country 'boody ware' plates from the early 1900s. 'Boody' (or 'boudy') was a word that originated from Northumberland and Durham area in the 19th century, to denote a piece of broken china or earthenware. By the 1880s, it began to be used for decorating jugs, bottles, boxes and as in this case, tin plates. This tradition particularly flourished in the north east and south west of England. Examples of 'boody ware' were included in the Tate Britain exhibition of British folk art in 2014.

 

Price quoted is for the pair.
