A rare pair of antique pottery prattware plaques with relief molded decoration of the heads of King George 111 and his Queen Charlotte. A rare opportunity to acquire a true period pair of the English monarchs.George III, unlike his father and grandfather, was born in England. He became heir to the throne when his father Frederick, Prince of Wales, died in 1751 George was well educated in science and arts. He became King George III in 1760 following the death of his grandfather. In 1761, after an official search for a suitable wife, he married Sophia Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz whom he met for the first time on his wedding day. The couple enjoyed a happy marriage.They had 16 children including George (later George IV) and William (who became William IV) and they were married for 57 years. In 1762 he purchased Buckingham House in London which later became Buckingham Palace. In late years King George had serious health problems and it was probably at this time that the pair of plaques were made.
Queen Charlotte plaque with good professional restoration to rim chip.
