Here is a 9" English flow blue plate from Ridgways Pottery Co. of Stoke-on-Trent. It dates from the mid-twentieth century. It shows a scene from Charles Dickens' "The Old Curiosity Shop" and is probably one of a series. The plate is white with a deep blue, slightly flowed design. There is a decorative border and central scene of people and a cottage. The plate shows crazing and wear on the gold trim but has no staining, chips, cracks, scratches, or other issues.
