Description

This is a gold-lustre decorated body style.  Full Ribbed pieces are usually of porcelain or other lightweight china.  In purist measure, it does not fit with the Tea Leaf Club International definition of wares that the club promotes, but is included here for educational purposes.  The Bridgwood firm has been in existence for almost two centuries, so it's hard to say exactly when they made Full Ribbed.  Godden states that this company produced porcelain wares prior to 1887;  semi-porcelian wares in the first half of the 20th century.
