This large platter is transfer printed in dark blue and has colorful enamels highlighting the design. The oval platter measures 18" x 15" and weighs a hefty 5 lbs. The white ironstone has a center image of a man with a flower dancing. Around the the border there are oriental children playing leap frog between flowering trees. The bottom is marked with a Bishop & Stonier mark used 1891-1936. It also has a mark MAPLE LONDON. I think this is probably the retailer. The red pattern numbers are there also. Another mark is too blurred to make out. The platter has some printing irregularities and light crazing. Very good condition otherwise.
