Vintage - Dish - "Cries of London" - 1960's
Tuscan tableware was founded in 1878 Staffordshire, England by R. H. Plant. Staffordshire records show that the Plant family were potters of renown going back at least as far as 1775. There are jugs and white glaze baskets marked 1780 - made by a Benjamin Plant. The 1775 diary of the same individual is kept in a private collection.
The scrupulously kept records show how much Benjamin paid for glazes and other potting materials - a unique insight into the history of Tuscan tableware. Their branded bone-china was known as 'Tuscan' until 1967 after which they were taken over by new parent company, Wedgwood who added the `Royal' prefix for marketing purposes.
