School Plates -sets of dishes featuring views of prep schools, colleges and universities- were quite popular in the twentieth century. Most were made by one of the largest and oldest potteries in England, but some were made by other companies, like Royal Cauldon.
This set was made for Phillips Exeter Academy. There are a total of twelve plates in this set, each with a different view of the school in the center. All have the same border, featuring the Exeter seal.
We have three: The Town from the Squamscott River, "The Yard", "Wentworth, Amen and Calley Halls"
Size: 10.375" in diameter.
Condition: all have a few light mark, which can only be seen under very close examination. "The Yard" is crazed.
Mark: Royal Cauldon backstamp with captions on the back of each.
