Blue-dash charger is a large circular earthenware dish made in England (especially Bristol and Lambeth) in the late 17th century and early 18th. The name derives from the dashes of blue around the rims. The dishes are usually decorated with Stuart monarchs or pretenders, but some portray an Adam and Eve in which the fruit is an orange, an allusion to William and Mary of Orange. There are no makers’ marks on the dishes.
