5” Flow Blue Dessert Plate – Scinde
This beautiful 5” Flow Blue antique dessert or fruit plate pattern is “SCINDE”, produced by John & George Alcock at Stoke-on-Trent Potteries, Cobridge, and Staffordshire, England. This plate dates from 1840 and has a back stamp in blue of “Scinde” within a wreath and an impressed mark of “Oriental Stone, J&G Alcock”. The plate is in good condition with the exception of a ½” hairline from the edge of the rim towards the middle of the plate and a small repair at 10 o’clock which you can see on the back of the plate and feel slight roughage on the rim edge. And of course there are a few minor flaws from firing as is often the case.
