Product Description

A highly unique delft plate, commemorating the Indus Basin Survey of 1964-1966.

Hand painted in the typical blue and white, the plate depicts four panels, symbolising the old and new Pakistan: one scene shows a farmer ploughing by oxen, whilst another shows a modern diesel tractor. Another depicts one of the newly built dams in the Indus Valley, whilst below are a pair of jasmine flowers (the national flower of Pakistan) and a sheaf of wheat.

The reverse of the plate bears the following dedication in Dutch: “Aangeboden door ILACO ter herinnering aan de samenwerking” (given by ILACO as a reminder of the collaboration).

The three names commemorated on the front of the plate “Hunting|Gibb|ILACO” refer to the three companies who collaborated on the project: Hunting Technical Services Limited (Agricultural Consultant to the Study); Sir Alexander Gibbs & Partners (Irrigation Consult and and coordinator of consultants to Study.); ILACO - (ILACO: Internation Land Development Consultants N.V., Agricultrual Consultant to the Study.).

The condition of the plate is excellent, with only the most minor crazing to the glaze.
