This is a 9" porcelain plate by W. H. Grindley, featuring a blue transfer-work rendition of "The Hay Wain" by British artist, John Constable. It is part of Grindley's china series called "Scenes After Constable" which were inspired by works of the famous artist. The plate has scalloped edges trimmed with an embossed motif of braid and trefoils which enclose a stencil or transfer-art border of rich flowers in blue. The central scene depicts a horse-drawn wagon (or "wain") fording a river which flows by a handsome house, as a man on the opposite bank stops to let his horse drink from the stream. The title "The Hay Wain After Constable" appears below the picture

The maker's mark, in blue, is a tall ship in a square frame with Grindley and England. Below that is a longhand inscription, "Scenes after Constable". The marks date the plate between 1936 and 1954. There are no chips, cracks, scratches or crazing; it is in excellent condition. This would make a beautiful cabinet plate.
