c 1840 Medina Red/Pink Staffordshire Transfer Plate by Godwin

This is a fine antique Staffordshire plate with a Middle Eastern scene. The pattern name is Medina. The maker's initials T G are on the back. This is one of the marks for the potter Thomas Godwin. The mark was used between 1834 and 1854. One wonders if the designer had any idea at all what the city of Medina looked like.This is an important city in the Muslim world; it is where the prophet Mohammed died. The plate is 10.5 inches in diameter and in beautiful condition. The pattern is pictured and discussed on page 141 of the book Staffordshire by Petra Williams. Note how much detail went into not only the central scene but also the border. Several closeups are shown to emphasize this.
