Early pair of Wedgwood plates in the "Peace" pattern and with Wedgwood impressed on the back of the soup plates or bowls. These are large pieces, 10 3/8" in diameter. In the center is a pair of birds atop a pair of crossed torches with ribbons and leaves. The wide border of the soup plate is decorated with braided swags topped at intervals with foliage and ribbons. The inner border is a deep red maroon banded in gold and then the outer border is somewhat geometric with square rosettes placed at intervals. One plate has a very tiny chip off the back as shown. Cannot be seen from the front so if placed in a shelf or on a wall for decoration, this would not show.The registry mark on the back indicates these plates were made Aug. 13, 1868.
