M. Read Co. Bridgeport Conn. on the back of the plate. It is a great piece of American History. Other than some expected ( very slight ) crazing, it is in wonderful condition. It is very nice and is a great piece of American History. It will make a fine addition to any related souvenir pottery / china or flow blue transferware collection. As the plate glaze is highly reflective, please disregard all of the photography-related glare and shadowing.
