This pattern is a popular Coalport pattern, JAPANESE GROVE. This is a deep blue pattern of flying birds amidst bamboo. There is a checkered border and a checkered band around the well of the plate. Often this pattern is seen gilded. This is not. The bottom is marked Coalport with a crown and 1750. This mark is 1881 to 1891. This large platter is in excellent condition. There is a heavy metal plate hanger on the plate. I can remove this if you do not want it. I left it for it is sturdy enough to support the size. There is some wear to the edge of the charger from the metal rubbing.
