This Jasperware trophy plate by Wedgwood is dated 1960. Solid Lilac was produced originally only for bas-relief work from 1777-c.1790, in limited quantities, It was brought back in full production for only four years beginning in 1960, then it was re-introduced in 1980. The limited amount of production of solid lilac contributes to the rarity of this piece.
This particular plate has the most elaborate design, which makes it even more of a rarity on the market place. In the center of the plate you have applied classical relief with the cameo center of Aurora on her chariot, which is encircled with a band of entwined ribbons and vines. The outer band of seven trophies and cupids are between the fruiting grapevine festoons which terminate on the fourteen ram's heads.The rim of the plate is decorated with seventy-five arches, each encompassing a four pedal flower with six leaves.
This plate has the impressed marks "Wedgwood" "60" and "Made in England". There is also an "N" and "FP". The plate size is 8 ¾". I hope you agree that this wonderful trophy plate is a very special item, and is certainly a treasure from history.
