William Adams of Staffordshire, England, made these two Adams Rose sandwich/ dessert plates between 1829 and 1861. Based on the colors used, I would estimate their production about 1840. The flowers are hand painted a deep ruby red color with detailed brush strokes and the foliage is a solid grass green also hand painted.
The scalloped edge is beaded all around. There are no marks on the back except for the painter's mark. The 7 inch size is useful for bread, sandwich, and dessert use.
The condition of both plates is superb. There are no chips, cracks, nor flakes. It would be difficult to find two plates better than these.
